There are far too many error messages being emitted all over the UI. Even the same ones are being repeated not only twice but sometimes even more on a single screen, e.g.

  1. at the top of the Security & Authentication tab
  2. at the top of the Login tab inside the Security & Authentication tab
  3. at the top of the MyLoginMethod tab inside the Login tab
  4. per config node on the MyLoginMethod tab

As a first attempt: dump gathering all errors inside of a tab at the top if it. That would mitigate the most of the problem.

Originally I had the error message only on the item that raised it, and a "there's an error" flag on the tab, but I guess that wasn't "in your face" enough for someone (probably George?)

I think there needs to be a balance. IIRC originally, the intermediate tabs were not flagged, so that you had to click every tab to find where the errrors were. I think maybe flagging the tabs, but not duplicating the messages might be sufficient. Some sort of happy medium:

- At lowest level, flag tab with the red and/or orange icon, and print the message details. - Propagate just the icons up each level.

As long as the tab icons make it up to every level, messages are just noise other than the lowest level.

If I asked for dup messages at every level, clearly I was a bit befuddled at the time.

Confirming this, leaving it as Enhancement, won't block 1.2., but nice to have.
