Description Jesus M. Rodriguez 2009-05-05 13:43:52 UTC
The Spacewalk API has been enhanced with each release of Spacewalk:
https://fedorahosted.org/spacewalk/wiki/ApiAdditions

What would be great is to have a CLI to interact with the Spacewalk server something along the lines of:

spacewalk user create --login=foo@redhat.com
spacewalk channel create --name="RHEL 5 i386" --arch=i386 --label=rhel5-i386
spacewalk kickstart create --name=rhel5-i386 --channel=rhel5-i386
spacewalk activationkey create --name=rhel5-i386 --channel=rhel5-i386

and so on .. would be immensely useful.  Just because our GUI is large 
and has many many different things to manage that doesn't mean there are 
simple entry points to all the common objects in Satellite.

The above could just be an interface to our existing XMLRPC API, all the 
above and more is available to be called to without our GUI.  The only 
thing we are lacking is an implementation of the actual CLI bits.
