Description Sergei Petrosian 2017-11-29 14:01:02 UTC
Description of problem:
While exporting a repository, it exports into a directory with a name mathcing the repository `group_id`, which makes it difficult to distinguish between exported directories and repositories they contain on import.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Satellite 6.x

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Following steps in this documentation:

1. Run
hammer repository export --id 1
2. cd into the directory specified in `pulp_export_destination`
3. Find a directory with a name similar to f6243fee-86ff-463f-9cd0-c46f32b1e9fe

Actual results:
An exported directory with a weird name f6243fee-86ff-463f-9cd0-c46f32b1e9fe

Expected results:
An exported directory with a name, that makes it possible to distinguish what repository is exported into it. Because later on import it is necessary to know what repository you're importing to change CDN url and select check box of an imported repository.

Is the behavior described working as designed?

Is there a reason or explanation for the naming that is or needs to be used for the exported content?


Comment 3 Chris Duryee 2018-01-15 16:49:50 UTC
This is working as expected, but is not an ideal user experience since the UUID is exposed.

IMO its ok to leave this open, but we may want to fix this as part of a larger effort to address usability issues with disconnected exports and not as a one-off for this particular bug.

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 5 Bryan Kearney 2019-02-07 12:03:50 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.
