Assigning to Sergei for review.

Comment 6 Steve Bream 2017-09-12 17:37:39 UTC
Hello Sergei,

I agree - I don't think it makes sense to add this note to the documentation, as it tells customers that they can ignore a warning they generate by doing something that we don't just not tell them how to do, but tell them (in the comments of the cron job) that they shouldn't do.

I'm guessing that customers learn how to run the command manually by looking into the cron job, so I suggest that we put the warning there, along the lines of:
$ crontab -l
# HEADER: This file was autogenerated at 2017-01-09 07:56:17 +0000 by puppet.
# HEADER: While it can still be managed manually, it is definitely not recommended.
# HEADER: Manually executing foreman_scap_client manually will generate errors
due to reference to missing files.
# HEADER: If you have run foreman_scap_client manually you can safely ignore errors due to missing http://www.redhat.com/security/data/oval/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux_7.xml. 
# HEADER: Note particularly that the comments starting with 'Puppet Name' should
# HEADER: not be deleted, as doing so could cause duplicate cron jobs.
# Puppet Name: foreman_scap_client_1
0 1 * * 1 /usr/bin/foreman_scap_client 1

Thank you Steve for comment 6

I see only one Sat6 scap component in bugzilla. Reassigning this bug to "Scap Plugin" as I do not know who owns the foreman_scap_client script.

Thank you

Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/21389 has been resolved.

Comment 14 Sanket Jagtap 2018-09-12 12:15:46 UTC
build :Satellite 6.4.0 snap21

Unable find the warning, maybe it missed the snap

Comment 17 Sanket Jagtap 2018-12-20 10:38:15 UTC
Build: Satellite 6.5.0 snap8 

The scap cron file has the required warning

# Executing foreman_scap_client from command line may be useful for debugging purposes.
# It may generate warnings due to a reference to a missing file.

# foreman_scap_client cron job

# Runs foreman_scap_client 1
0 1 * * 4 root /bin/sleep 165 ; /usr/bin/foreman_scap_client 1 2>&1 | logger -t foreman_scap_client
