I have a desire to have multiple Open OnDemand applications open at the same time.
In OOD 2.X, command-clicking multiple icons on the dashboard opened multiple corresponding applications in new tabs (I am a Mac user).
However, in OOD 3.0, command-clicking one icon will no longer select the other icon. This happens in Safari, Chrome and Firefox. Reloading the dashboard page allows me to select other applications, but it’s a hassle.
Only the Job composer and Shell applications can be command-clicked to select other applications.
I thought I should set new_window: true in manifest.yml.
Active Jobs and Home Directory worked as expected, but new_window: true does not work for applications with role: batch_connect. These applications do not open new windows when clicked normally (without command-key).
How can I set it to open mutiple applications in new tabs ?
When I hold down the control key (not the command key in Ubuntu) and click an icon in the dashboard, that application will open in a new tab, but the other icons will be translucent and cannot be selected.
For simplicity, /etc/ood/config/apps/dashboard was removed. Then, when I hold down the control key and click on the pinned application icon in the dashboard, I will get the following screen, and I cannot click on any other icons. Reloading the page will fix it, but that is a complicated process.
