Scripts and Execute

On scripts page (https://my.scalr.com/#/scripts), each script has an execute action that's indicated by the lightning icon. However, its would also be useful to have the same action on the top action bar (where the delete icon is) as that's more natural to look for actions.

Perhaps consider changing the icon to a play icon as well as indicates more what it does.

    Hey Patrick, thanks for reaching out,

    The reason this isn't in the top actions bar would be because you can't execute Scripts in bulk (so if you were to select multiple scripts, then pressing this action wouldn't work). Delete does work in bulk, hence why we can have it there.

    As for changing the icon; I'd be a bit wary about this, considering it's been this one for a while, but I'll look out for similar feedback from other customers to see if that makes sense.

    Let me know your thoughts,

    Cheers,

    https://my.scalr.com/#/scripts - checkboxs are missing, so delete doesn't currently work in bulk.

    In the old interface, there was definitely more than one place where you could execute a script from. Maybe it was a right click method. I just know that I never used the lightning icon in the past and its not intuitive as to what it does. Perhaps an execute button on the right edit script panel would help.

    Patrick,

    Delete does work in bulk, but you're probably viewing Account-Scope Script from within the Environment, where you don't have permission to delete (or edit) them (and since deleting is the only bulk option available, you can't select them).

    There was indeed an "actions" button in the Scripts List, and that had the option to execute the Script. I'll see what we can do w.r.t. having a "Execute" button in the right-hand-side panel, though!

    This might make the UI a bit crowded though, so maybe we'd have to pull some things from the table to make more room. Is execution mode something you care about in this list? It would seem like the natural candidate.

    Cheers,

    The most common thing we do with scripts is executing.

    Occasionally, we update.

    Rarely do we fork or delete.

    Not sure what the new options to upload script or attach from web are, but again, very unlikely to do either of those options.
