Description

current situation

the web ui to configure products, test suites and machines only displays known settings atm.

proposal

To make this more user friendly and dynamic, the information of the available variables could be parsed from os-autoinst resp the distro specific test suites.

further ideas

Having a type system might be useful so the operator can enter only valid values rather than arbitrary ones.
