Description Ture Karlsson 2017-11-21 08:28:46 UTC
Description of problem:
The standard job template "Service Action - SSH Default" does not support enabling or disabling services. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 6.2.12

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run job template "Service Action - SSH Default"
2. Notice that there are no option to enable or disable a service

Actual results:
You have to use "Run Command - SSH Default" with "chkconfig <service name> on/off" or "systemctl <service name> enable/disable" depending on the target host.

Expected results:
There should be options in "Service Action - SSH Default" to enable/disable services and the template should handle if it is executed on a system that is using systemd or not.

Implementation suggestion:
Change the template to this:

<% if == "Redhat" && @host.operatingsystem.major.to_i > 6 -%>
systemctl <%= input("action") %> <%= input("service") %>
<% elsif input("action") == "enable" -%>
chkconfig <%= input("service") %> on
<% elsif input("action") == "disable" -%>
chkconfig <%= input("service") %> off
<% else -%>
service <%= input("service") %> <%= input("action") %>
<% end -%>

And in the Job tab under Template input, add "enable" and "disable" to the list of Options so that the list consist of the following options:

Created redmine issue from this bug

Comment 2 2018-06-19 08:14:18 UTC
Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue has been resolved.

Comment 4 Peter Ondrejka 2018-11-14 11:38:44 UTC
Well, verified for "Service Action - SSH Default" on Sat 6.5 snap 2, but shouldn't we fix the same problem in "Service Action - Ansible Default" while we are at it?

Comment 5 Peter Ondrejka 2018-11-14 12:10:11 UTC
OK turned out "Service Action - Ansible Default" has the enable option implemented as a separate input, which is cumbersome but not a reason to block this bz
