We should ensure that the --quantity option is mutually exclusive with the --auto option.

This handling was changed in commmit 281c1e5818eefa89bc73ba438c75494e16afc698 in repsonse to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1275179 Plese re-evaluate.
Comment 6 Shwetha Kallesh 2015-12-17 07:27:52 EST
Now help message is modified but would have been nice if the message would have been " --quantity=QUANTITY number of subscriptions to attach; only used with --pool" in sync with other modules [root@dell-pe1850-04 ~]# subscription-manager attach --help | grep quantity -A1 --quantity=QUANTITY Number of subscriptions to attach. May not be used with an auto-attach.
Comment 7 John Sefler 2015-12-17 08:32:44 EST
Here are some suggestions for the help message...  "Number of subscriptions to attach; only used with --pool"  "Number of subscriptions to attach. May not be used with an auto-attach."  "Number of subscriptions to attach; cannot be used with --auto"  "Number of subscriptions to attach when specifying a --pool that is multi-entitleable" My vote is to stick with the the currently implemented message  and move this bug to VERIFIED.
