Web page reload with "dangerous" functions...

I am curious if other folks get bitten by this, or if I’m just a doofus.

I think that Cloudmin should redirect to another page after dangerous functions are invoked from the interface and completed. More than once, I have forgotten about a tab that was open to a “System State->Reboot System” or “System Operations->Reset From Image” completion and when the web browser restarts, the function repeats!!!

One solution I can think of is that the status/completion pages with dangerous operations have some sort of session key coded into them to keep them from starting unless they have been invoked from the left pane.


This seems like it would be a good idea. I have done that myself once or twice actually (thankfully the machines were being sued by myself for testing)



Yup, that’s certainly worth talking about! I think we’d need Jamie’s thoughts on the matter though, as there may be some downsides as well.

Could you open a support request, using the “Support” link above, and post your thoughts there? Then we can get Jamie involved and see what he thinks :slight_smile: Thanks!
