Description Lukáš Hellebrandt 2020-01-17 13:47:45 UTC
Description of problem:
When generating a report template that doesn't contain report_render string in template, the Output Format field is greyed out but contains the value of "CSV". This is misleading because the resulting file is a text file, according both to MIME type and to its extension.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
6.7, feature unavailable in previous versions

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a report template that doesn't contain report_render string in template
2. Monitor -> Report Templates -> Generate

Actual results:
Output Format field greyed out, containing "CSV"

Expected results:
Something that is not misleading, e.g. empty value

Created redmine issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/28845 from this bug

Comment 4 Bryan Kearney 2020-02-19 15:04:20 UTC
Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/28845 has been resolved.

Comment 5 Lukáš Hellebrandt 2020-06-09 11:55:55 UTC
Verified with Sat 6.8 snap 3.0.

Used reproducer from OP. Custom reports now have the Output Format field greyed out and empty (and the result is a txt file) while the behavior hasn't changed when generating built-in reports.
