[RFE]“Repo-override” should inform user when adding an override for a non-existing Repo
Last modified: 2015-04-23 19:57:45 EDT
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Rhel7 with following subscription-manager rpm
Steps to Repro :
Register client to candlepin and subscribe instance based subscription
Override non existing repo using following command
[root@localhost ~]# subscription-manager repo-override --repo=tesssssssssss –add=test1:123
Expected Result :
Message should display like
invalid repoid , --repo=tesssssssssss
invalid Parameters –add=test1:123
Actual result :
command successfully executed , No message displayed on console
[root@localhost yum.repos.d]# subscription-manager repo-override --repo=tesssssssssss --add=test1:123
[root@localhost yum.repos.d]# echo $?
In my opinion, adding a repo override to a currently non-existant repo is acceptable and will persist the life of the consumer applying to subscriptions as they are attached and removed. I believe this is the behavior we want.
However, it can also be misleading to a user that has inadvertantly mistyped a repo name. I would suggest adding an informative feedback similar to the following mock-up...
# subscription-manager repo-override --repo=foo --repo=bar --add=test1:123
Repository 'foo' does not currently exist, but the override has been added.
Repository 'bar' does not currently exist, but the override has been added.
# echo $?
I like this idea. I'll work on a fix for this.
[root@jsefler-7 ~]# subscription-manager version
server type: Red Hat Subscription Management
subscription management server: Unknown
[root@jsefler-7 ~]# subscription-manager register --serverurl=jsefler-f14-candlepin.usersys.redhat.com:8443/candlepin
The system has been registered with ID: 56a31342-9ab1-4185-8917-a641cf7b31c0
[root@jsefler-7 ~]# subscription-manager repo-override --repo=tesssssssssss --add=test1:123
Repository 'tesssssssssss' does not currently exist, but the override has been added.
[root@jsefler-7 ~]# subscription-manager repo-override --list
VERIFIED: When adding a repo-override to a currently non existent repo, the user is informed that the repo does not exist, yet the addition succeeds for future repos.
