Description Pavel Moravec 2019-03-10 16:20:52 UTC
Description of problem:
WebUI search on errata page for RHSA*, or direct API search like:

curl -X GET -s -k -u admin:secret 'https://$(hostname -f)/katello/api/v2/errata?per_page=10000&search=RHSA*'

returns very few RHSA errata. Despite there are many shown without that filter.

The reason is, the "filter" greps within errata description (I think) and it does not filter based on errata id. That is less intuitive implementation.

I suggest such a search without param=value filter should assume the value is (prefix of) errata id.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
0. Have some bigger repo synced (e.g. RHEL6 or RHEL7 base repo)
1. curl -X GET -s -k -u admin:secret 'https://$(hostname -f)/katello/api/v2/errata?per_page=10000&search=RHSA*' > rhsa.errata.json
2. python -m json.tool rhsa.errata.json | grep errata_id

Actual results:
2. shows just few errata

Expected results:
2. to show all RHSA errata in katello

Of course, one shall use "search=type%3Dsecurity" / type=security filter, but that is less intuitive. Hence this improvement BZ.
