Description Arun Babu Neelicattu 2013-07-10 08:41:45 UTC
The result array structure does not contain the errata id as indicated by the documentation at [1].

The following code,

import sys, xmlrpclib

server = xmlrpclib.Server('https://rhn.redhat.com/rhn/rpc/api')
token = server.auth.login(username, password)
results = server.channel.software.listErrata(token, 'jb-ews-2-x86_64-server-6-rpm')
for key in results[0].keys():


Expected Resolution:
Either errata_id is returned in the structure or (if not available already) a provision to map errata name to ids is made available.

As you may already be aware, Red Hat is transitioning from the Red Hat Network (RHN) hosted interface to the Red Hat Subscription Management (RHSM) interface in July 2017. Red Hat has invested in and seen success from RHN for many years, and used that experience to build more robust technologies like RHSM. 
If you have not yet migrated your RHN systems to RHSM or you are a Red Hat Satellite customer, please review the information from. https://access.redhat.com/products/red-hat-subscription-management#migration. 
Since we are shutting down RHN, no further actions will be taken with this bug or enhancement request.  You can find additional information at RHSM product page (https://access.redhat.com/products/red-hat-subscription-management).  If you have further questions, please contact support (https://access.redhat.com/products/red-hat-subscription-management#support).
