In our rundeck jobs, we have some options that depend on over options. (options which are generated with an option provider which take as url parameter a previous option)
It would be very useful to sort our job execution options on rundeck GUI, in order to choose option in an intuitive order for the job's user.
As it's an enhancement, I've also post a request : https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/rundeck-discuss/G1_Fr_UKBKU
You can change the ordering in the XML definition, and preserve it using preserveOrder (see http://rundeck.org/docs/man5/job-xml.html#options). If you let rundeck do it automatically, it will arrange the options using the dependency between remote URL options, and then also using alphabetical by name.
we need to enhance the GUI to allow "preserveOrder" to be done that way
Ok thx a lot i tried to reorder them from the yaml file, but not the XML one. I'll try that.
I'm not sure that the alphabetic order is preserved : I tried to prefix my options with number sequences (01, 02,03, ... ) and just after the Yaml's import it was OK, but after an edition through the GUI it became a mess again ... [cf. screenshot above]
As a first step, it might at least be useful to allow the job "designer" to order the options when creating the job. Exactly like how workflow steps can be ordered on the GUI by dragging.
yes, indeed. The GUI way would be more user friendly
+1 for support for this in the GUI
+1 for GUI
+1 for GUI!
Almost 7 months since last +1 for GUI. Did manual export/import of the XML after reordering items worked, but would be much nicer if I could drag them around similar to how you can re-order workflow items.
I added this feature on trello https://trello.com/c/wU2Aq3H1 please vote for it there
Thx a lot !
