Description Stanislav Tkachenko 2017-11-14 13:19:07 UTC
Description of problem:
API/CLI and UI treat differently whether LCE/CV is required when creating Host:
a) For API/CLI it is required only when creating host with associated hostgroup that does not associated with any LCE/CV. Otherwise they are not required.
b) For UI they are always required, however, those are not marked with '*' sign as other required fields.

So I'm not sure what behavior is expected: wether LCE/CV should be always required or should not be required at all.

Also if it should be always required update of APIDOC also needed as those options marked as optional.

Moving to Hosts-Content for further info on when these fields should be required and when not. (They are only required for content hosts)

The Satellite Team is attempting to provide an accurate backlog of bugzilla requests which we feel will be resolved in the next few releases. We do not believe this bugzilla will meet that criteria, and have plans to close it out in 1 month. This is not a reflection on the validity of the request, but a reflection of the many priorities for the product. If you have any concerns about this, feel free to contact Rich Jerrido or Bryan Kearney or your account team. If we do not hear from you, we will close this bug out. Thank you.

Comment 4 Bryan Kearney 2019-02-07 12:03:46 UTC
Thank you for your interest in Satellite 6. We have evaluated this request, and while we recognize that it is a valid request, we do not expect this to be implemented in the product in the foreseeable future. This is due to other priorities for the product, and not a reflection on the request itself. We are therefore closing this out as WONTFIX. If you have any concerns about this, please do not reopen. Instead, feel free to contact Red Hat Technical Support. Thank you.
