Hello Cockpit crew,
I am working on ABRT and I am the author of the 'org.freedesktop.Problems'
support idea .
I would like to let you that we have developed a Cockpit module  showing
problems detected by ABRT and allowing users to report them. The module is
still rather a proof of concept (especially the reporting part) but we wanted to
make you aware of its existence.
I have prepared a demonstration video:
and a Fedora COPR with the packages:
I know Cockpit development is driven by user stories but I didn't want to write
a hypothetical case. Last week I got a lot of luck, because I found a crash of
realmd  which was reproducible using Cockpit. So, here is our user story:
Charles King, an administrator at Czechlands, wants to add John's work
station to Romanum Active Directory Domain. Charles logs in to Cockpit on
John's work station, clicks the 'Join Domain' button, fills in required
information and hits return. After a while, "Message recipient disconnected
from message bus without replying" error message appears. Charles tries to
sort out the problem so he looks into the system logs and discovers a
message about realmd crash. He opens "Tools" menu and goes to
item where he finds an entry for the crash. He reviews the data presented
and decides to report the problem. The report reply includes a link to a
Bugzilla bug which is already fixed. Charles updates John's box and
successfully adds the box to Romanum domain.
The module uses some experimental work and it is definitely not production
ready. However, we would love to hear any feedback from you before we spend too
much time doing wrong things.
This is pretty cool.
Thinking about the integration here a bit ...
Is there a relevant journal entry we can use to generate links to the
problems in question? It would be cool to perculate this up into a
troubleshooting page and we've planned to use the journal and message
catalogs to do that:
If there was a relevant journal entry that had a catalog message id, we
could handle that specially and allow the user to click through to the
Problem, and perform the actions in the video. What do you think?
