The context-sensitive-help docs haven't been maintained for quite some time (and aren't available in spacewalk). Since there are no plans to replace them, the appropriate thing to do is remove the (out-of-date/erroneous/missing) references entirely from the app.

spacewalk commit 3f6ffdba8b4124d0e3ff346802d9c9d9e5b5a32a

From jdobes@redhat.com:

these help links are still showing on PXT pages (e.g. '/network/software/channels/manage/clone.pxt'), with target address heading on root of help '/rhn/help/getting-started/en-US/'. Perl rendering code apparently displays link even when help-url is set to "".

If help-url parameter is removed, link is not displayed. But maybe we want change/remove rendering code and keep these empty help-url parameters (as on JSP pages). Any idea how to fix it?


Well, there is still active code in 'web/modules/sniglets/Sniglets/HTML.pm' on line 98:

if (defined $params{'help-url'}) {

Empty string is still defined and link then rendered. Simplest solution is to remove defined keyword, empty strings will not pass then.

Moving back to ASSIGNED to apply fix
