In the web UI, when you activate/deploy a config version, a prompt is immediately shown saying This version is inactive. Would you like to deploy it now?
This causes confusion if you’re deploying frequently to get a certain config to work, because you’re never quite sure if the version you’re looking at has changes or not.
Also, because this prompt appears after the page content loads, the entire UI keeps jumping as it’s shown which is highly annoying.
Please can the following be done:
- when viewing an unlocked (i.e. editable) version, stop prompting to deploy unless there are changes between it and the currently active one. this implies indicating there are changes between the active and current versions.
- when viewing a locked version, continue to show the existing message about being locked but being able to activate - potentially change the button text from Activate to something like “roll back to” so it’s clear you’re looking at an old version.
- show the prompt in a way that reserves layout space so the page doesn’t jump when it shows.
Happy to discuss alternatives, these are just suggestions. But please can something be done about this.
