Chapter 14. Using the v2 UI

download PDF

Use the following procedures to configure, and use, the Red Hat Quay v2 UI.

14.1. v2 user interface configuration

With FEATURE_UI_V2 enabled, you can toggle between the current version of the user interface and the new version of the user interface.

Important
  • This UI is currently in beta and subject to change. In its current state, users can only create, view, and delete organizations, repositories, and image tags.
  • When using the old UI, timed-out sessions would require that the user input their password again in the pop-up window. With the new UI, users are returned to the main page and required to input their username and password credentials. This is a known issue and will be fixed in a future version of the new UI.
  • There is a discrepancy in how image manifest sizes are reported between the legacy UI and the new UI. In the legacy UI, image manifests were reported in mebibytes. The v2 UI uses the standard definition of megabyte (MB) to report image manifest sizes.

Procedure

  1. In your deployment’s config.yaml file, add the FEATURE_UI_V2 parameter and set it to true, for example:

    ---
    FEATURE_TEAM_SYNCING: false
    FEATURE_UI_V2: true
    FEATURE_USER_CREATION: true
    ---
  2. Log in to your Red Hat Quay deployment.
  3. In the navigation pane of your deployment, you are given the option to toggle between Current UI and New UI. Click the toggle button to set it to new UI, and then click Use Beta Environment, for example:
