Cool, I browsed some cubes successfully.
So, given that we do support cubes, then there are additional fields that would be very useful in the selection dialog.
I would like to suggest that we consider having the dialog offer a UI element that allows optional restriction to specific types of maps (i.e., specific values of dataproduct_type) and which, when selected, modifies the selection dialog to add additional columns. For cubes, this means at a minimum supporting hips_cube_depth (which is a mandatory parameter in properties for cubes) and data_cube_bunit3.
I thought that I'd put the following suggestion on a ticket somewhere already, but I can't find it now.
I would like to suggest that we add, to the HIPS-map-selection table, columns for hips_cube_depth ("Cube Depth") and data_cube_bunit3 ("Cube variable"), that we fill them when those properties are present, and that we disable their display by default (i.e., have the initial state of the column-selector dialog have them unchecked). Then someone interested in cubes can turn them back on manually.
This is not required for the May release.
Another ticket DM-14158 will address the extra columns for cube data.
I haven't tried a cube yet. I'll do that after my current (1-2) meeting.
