Improve UX for Job view and Execution view pages

Reported by Greg Schueler | May 7th, 2012 @ 04:18 PM

  • Issue Type: Improvement
    • Rundeck version: 1.1+


The "Execution follow" page and the "Job View" page are visually similar, but are views of different parts of the data model.

The Execution/Job distinction should be made clearer and the actions available for the two types of objects be separated better, and refined.

current actions:

  • Job view page actions: delete, copy, edit, download, run
  • Execution view page actions: [Copy, download, run (for the associated job)], Rerun/save (for both adhoc and job), retry failed nodes


  • The Execution view should allow access to all of the Job actions, but be clear about their relation to the Job not the execution.
  • The Execution's actions should clearly show how they relate to the associated Job, if any.
    • e.g.: "Run Again" runs the Job with the same option values. "Save workflow" copies the execution's workflow which may differ from the Job.
