For many field values, throughout admin console, we simply provide a text input field for value entry. Although we provide field tooltip help, users are likely to be confused which values they can enter. To further this confusion some of these field entries accept a list of values. In these cases, users are forced to input values as a JSON list. This is unacceptable.
In order to enhance UI experience, we will enable fields to fetch/prepopulate possible input values from the server - in runtime and convert options/choices to select lists recommended by Patternfly guidelines.
For mutually exclusive choices we will convert the text field to single select drop down list. For the cases where multiple choices are allowed, we will use multiselect list or combo boxes depending on the particular use case and Patternfly guidelines.
