Promote issue to epic "may expose confidential information" warning needs explanation
I knew we could promote issues to epics, and went to use it for the first time. I found https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/user/group/epics/#promoting-an-issue-to-an-epic and typed
/promote into the comment field and saw:
I thought: "Oh no, what am I about to expose?". And googled
site:gitlab.com "may expose confidential information" and got nothing useful:
At this point, many users will stop and never use the action.
As a GitLab dev, I found the string in the code, and found the MR and issue, but I'm actually still a little worried something unexpected could happen. Should the warning be displayed at all on a public issue of a public project?
If we want users to use the action, they need to know with more certainty what will happen if they use it.
- Add full explanation about the warning on https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/user/group/epics/#promoting-an-issue-to-an-epic
- Hide the warning if irrelevant?
- Ideally link to the doc from the warning, but that's probably not possible on the select?
