Namespace preferences and menu clean up


As a user I need to be able to navigate between Namespaces in a way that is intuitive.
I need to be able to set and change default Namespaces and view preferences of the Namespace selected.

Namespace dropdown acceptance criteria

  • On click Namespace drop down opens

  • Selected Namespace is displayed in a card format which contains the following information:
    • Default state
    • Number of Applications
    • Number of Datasets
    • Number of Streams
    • Fast action: Preferences icon - which opens Preference modal

  • List of all the Namespaces available are ordered alphabetically A-Z
    • Unselected Namespaces rows change background color on hover
    • On hover hollow default star is displayed
    • User can set new default by clicking on the default star icon (star changes from hollow to full) in context without Namespace being selected
    • A max of 8 Namespace rows are displayed at the time (plus selected Namespace)
    • if there are more than 8 Namespaces rows, a scroll bar appears. Please note that scrolling occurs between selected namespace card and [Add Namespace]

  • Add Namespace - which will open the "Add Namespace" modal

To close the drop down user has to either:

  • Click on the main nav Namespace, or

  • Select one of the Namespaces row (changing default selection will not close the drop down).

  • Click outside the drop down (no changes in the selection of the Namespace)

Namespace preference modal

  • Modal opens when user clicks the "preferences" icon.

  • Use same design as Application and Programs preferences design. Change Title and description
    • Set Preferences for Namespace <Namespace Name>
    • Specify new or override existing system preferences. These preferences will be accessible in all applications and programs within this namespace.

  • After the user closes the modal (by either using [Save and Close] or [x]), the Namespace drop down is still open and a confirmation message is displayed.

Confirmation Message

  • A confirmation message is displayed: message: "You set new preferences". (see attached mock up).

  • Preference icon turns green after user add/changes preferences.

  • Green icon persists until the green header fades after 3 seconds or the user closes the confirmation header. Both actions will make the wrench icon return to its original color

  • Green header and outline fades after 3 seconds.

  • Green header can be closed by user by clicking the [x] icon.

Bug list:
Namespace dropdown

  • Number of Applications, Datasets and Stream need to reflect actual numbers.

  • Drop down menu should close after user selects Namespace

  • Divider line between preferences icon and Namespace metrics is not displayed correctly

  • Setting default: default can be changed by clicking on a hollow star (no on/off toggle within the same namespace)----Improvement

  • Selected namespace may be displayed as truncated. When user hovers over the name in the card, a tooltip containing the entire name is displayed

  • Namespaces names should be organized alphabetically A-Z in descending order

  • When the user opens the namespace drop down, the scrolling position is reset to the top.
