Hello the developers
I want to bring a use case which is not covered by Mender’s UI currently.
When a new device contacts the server for the first time, it’s authentification request is shown on a separate tab - , as it allows to see the devices that need attention.
However, if a previously accepted device changes authentification set (for example, when a new SD card is used, or the image is reburned for some reason), such devices do not pop in the “pending” list. Instead, the info about a new authentification that is pending is silently shown in the device’s details in the global list. Thus, I as the admin have no clue when new authentification set arrives and needs my approval or reject, and updates will never reach this device even if it is included in a deployment.
Showing such devices in “Pending” or in a new separate tab would help.
UPD: API doesn’t seem to provide an option to query for such devices neither… Please correct me if I’m wrong
