Bug Description

Detailed bug description:
 After installing my horizon dashboard plugin on Horizon deployed by Fuel, all the left sidebar collapsible items become unclickable and won't open sub-menu.
This only happen if the custom plugin has js files in the "static" folder. If the set the attribute "AUTO_DISCOVER_STATIC_FILES = False" and remove any lines of explicit javascript inclusion, Horizon dashbaord will work properly.
I tried also to include empty js file, or js file with only alert("") for example and the issue is produced.

Steps to reproduce:
 1. install the plugin using ".deb" file.
 2. browse horizon Dashboard, left sidebar will become unclickable

Expected results:
 Bad: left sidebar will become should stay clickable

Actual result:
 Good: left sidebar will become unclickable

 <put your information here>

 - move js code into panels html files which is bad approach.

Description of the environment:
- Operation system: Ubuntu
- Versions of components: Horizon deployed by Mirantis Fuel liberty
- Related projects installed: openstack/horizon

Additional information:
 - github of the plugin: https://github.com/openstack/horizon-mellanox
 - ".deb" file is attached
 - screenshot attached

Looks like the issue is not with horizon or mellanox_dashboard, but with its deb package.
I've reproduced the problem and seen that Chrome developer console has horizon.app is missing. That's why all javascript things (like dropdowns) are broken.

After that I disabled compressing static files with COMPRESS_ENABLED = False in local_settings.py and after restarting apache I've got an error that Horizon faled to load horizon_mellanox.js. I belive that happened because horizon_mellanox directory with all its content is present in
 /usr/share/openstack-dashboard/openstack_dashboard/static/ dir, but is missing in /usr/share/openstack-dashboard/static dirm where all static files are placed after running manage.py collectstatic command.

So, after running './manage.py collectstatic --clear --noinput && ./manage.py compress' and 'service apache2 restart' everything works fine. Thus, I believe that this bug is invalid for Horizon since code is fine.

Thank you very much Paul,

Where I can find that manage.py ?

is a file I should add to my plugin? or its a Horizon file.

As I can understand, I think that I should add these command to be executed in "deb" package:
./manage.py collectstatic --clear --noinput && ./manage.py compress
service apache2 restart

and do manage.py copy static files to "/usr/share/openstack-dashboard/static" ?
