Description Thom Carlin 2016-07-26 12:43:42 UTC
Description of problem:

If Register Host for Updates is set to true, subsequent list of options still display it as false.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install QCI
2. Log in to run launch-fusor-installer
3. Enter provisioning NIC
4. Change "Register Host For Updates" from "false" to "true"
5. Enter information
6. Examine installation options

Actual results:

* Successful host registration [good!]
* Register Host For Updates false [bad]

Expected results:

* Successful host registration
* Register Host For Updates set to true

Additional info:

It seems as if the host is successfully registered but:
1) it is confusing to an end-user UX
2) it is unclear if there any subsequent *registration* processing that occurs when the user selects "Proceed with the values shown"
3) It runs immediately instead of waiting for "Proceed with values shown" which may be a bit jarring for UX

Comment 3 Jesus M. Rodriguez 2016-08-05 18:15:37 UTC
Registration has been moved to run AFTER you select option 1 Proceed with installation. If registration fails, i.e. wrong password, customer portal is down, etc. we will exit the installer. You can re-run the installer and choose not to register to get past those errors.

By moving the register to after option 1 selection, we now run AFTER the network has been setup. If the network has not been setup, we fail and drop out of the installer.

The state of register will now show true after you have changed it to true.
