Description

On the "VM Devices" pane, clicking the "Add device" button opens a modal dialog that prompts for "VM", "Type", and potentially other dynamic fields.

The "VM" entry dropbox should be pre-selected to the name of the VM that you are currently viewing since that pane has already been restricted to viewing devices for a single VM.

Jeff: this has been fixed for 11.1.

#2 Updated by Jeff Lawson almost 3 years ago

This is still an issue in 11.1, so I believe it still needs to be fixed.

See attached screenshot. Notice that the "VM" dropdown has defaulted to "---" rather than "testvm" (the name of the VM that I am currently viewing).

#6 Updated by Jeff Lawson almost 3 years ago

Removing the VM dropdown from that dialog would also be reasonable, since it seems unusual for a user to actually want to add a device for a VM other than the one they are currently viewing devices for.
