Ticket #2012 (closed enhancement: fixed)
Snapshots functionality - confusing UI, no documentation
|Reported by:||vadimrapp||Owned by:|
The items in the shortcut menu for the snapshots and current state on the tab "Snapshots" are confusing, and not documented.
Specifically: if I have 3 snapshots, and I right-click on snapshot 2, it's not clear what "discard snapshot" means: will the vm revert to snapshot 1 or will it be merged to snapshot 3? If I right-click on "current state", the items in shortcut menu are expected to pertain to the items that is clicked, that is, to the current state. Why are there items pertaining to the snapshot?
Or, what is the difference between "discard current snapshot" and "discard current snapshot and state" - it's not documented, and one can only guess what that means and what's the difference and consequences of each.
It would be much more straightforward if the context menu had the following minimally necessary items:
Revert to this snapshot
Merge to the next snapshot
With or without this change, it would be nice to have detailed descriptions of the actions in the documentation, with examples.
