Workstations Add Profiles broken

    A recently added feature for adding profiles from the symbiont workstation manager seems to not be working here.

    There is a button to "Delete Selected", though there are no check boxes or any way to select the profiles listed.

    Clicking the "Add Profile" button results in a message saying "File successfully uploaded.", with the text coloured green, even when no files were selected for uploading. No other adverse effects seem to occur though.

    There is no way to view the profiles through the interface, nor is there any way to create a profile directly through the web interface. Is this planned?

      Sorry for the quirky nature of the "Add Profiles" feature.  As you say, this was recently introduced, so that Value Added Resellers can send their end users ".profile" files, which they can add on their own through a GUI, while not requiring end users to copy the files to the appropriate directory.  It is also an upload rather than a copy, so VARs can upload directory from remote locations.

      SWM 4.0 is currently in the works.  Aside from, as one might expect, incorporating features of LTSP 4.0, the new version will have a much more robust profile system, allowing users not only to add/delete, but to modify/create their own profiles based on simple pulldown options.  Our goal is to make things simple, so we are working hard to make options that most end users will be able to identify easily.
