#5381 [WebUI] Missing UI for working with multiple certificates in User, Host, Service pages

Created 2 years ago by pvoborni

Ticket was cloned from Red Hat Bugzilla (product Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7): Bug 1272491

Description of problem:
Certificate action dropdown does not display all the options after adding new

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

 In Host page, After adding certificate following option are not displayed :
View Certificate
Get Certificate
Revoke Certificate
Restore Certificate

Actual results:
I have attached screenshots, please have a look.

-However able to see show button in host "certificate section" after adding the
-Not sure if it is the latest implementation

Expected results:

Additional info:


It was hidden on purpose. It doesn't work well when there are multiple certificates present.

Reason is that Web UI doesn't have a capability to parse certificates(ASN.1 parser) and API wasn't designed to send serial numbers so Web UI can't get required info by calling ipa cert-show command.

Similar issue is also in CLI with a difference that there is info displayed for one of the certificates but not the others(they are just in base64 encoded form).

A potential long-term solution might be to add an ASN.1 parser to
Web UI.

This is one of the core features missing in the UI, raising priority.
