The meeting is divided into four 15-minute slots for community developers to chat with OpenSearch Dashboards project maintainers.

Thanks for joining us today (7 attendees)!

Here are some of the links and topics we covered:

  1. Proposal review for Discover 2.0 by @ashwinpc
  2. One general UI improvement is to examine the over-use of text truncation. In particular, we should open a new issue for data source truncation in dropdowns/selectors. Other known issues:
    1. [Discuss][Follow-up] Suggestion list cutoff behavior · Issue #2606 · opensearch-project/OpenSearch-Dashboards · GitHub
    2. Disable truncation in visualization legend · Issue #3278 · opensearch-project/OpenSearch-Dashboards · GitHub
    3. Truncate long fields in Discover server-side · Issue #3475 · opensearch-project/OpenSearch-Dashboards · GitHub
  3. Other active proposals worth reviewing:
    1. Navigation changes for administrative features
    2. Alternative storage for saved objects
  4. Current OpenSearch Dashboards initiatives and priorities:
    1. EOL Node version update
    2. Removing Angular.js dependency (migrate to React)
    3. Preparing for major look and feel updates via OUI compliance
  5. Ad-hoc discussion: Issue with the data source selector in the Alerting plugin
    1. We’ll move this issue to GitHub - opensearch-project/alerting-dashboards-plugin: 📟 Manage your monitors, alerts and notifications in OpenSearch Dashboards, and continue the discussion there - likely a straightforward fix by changing the endpoint: alerting-dashboards-plugin/OpensearchService.js at main · opensearch-project/alerting-dashboards-plugin · GitHub
    2. We may open up a campaign/issue to ensure all dashboards plugins have consistent data source selection experiences
    3. We’ll follow-up with the cross cluster replication maintainers to make sure they’re actively triaging issues.
  6. How to find the team on slack:
    1. Communication guide for OpenSearch Dashboards
    2. #dashboards channel for Dashboards
    3. #devrel channel to chat with developer advocates and get more involved in the project
