Description of problem:
The content host bulk actions need to be converted to dynflow and the UI updated to enable the user to see progress and completion of those actions.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Hosts -> Content Hosts
2. select a couple of content hosts
3. Click 'Bulk Actions'
4. go to Packages or Errata
5. perform an action
The action is initiated; however, there is no indication to the user that it is being executed. In addition, there is no history of the action upon completion.
If possible, we should show the user progress of the action being executed. In order to support this, we should update the bulk actions to use dynflow and provide a similar task status/progress to what we show today for other actions.
This is present in current Satellite (6.0.7), and a popular pain point among our users. Most of them use Satellite for applying mass errata, and this issue makes monitoring and reporting -almost- impossible...

So is there currently a workaround for this?

AFAIK, no - You have to wait for sometime to let the updates finish, and then check each one of the clients for the result...

It seems that this issue is actually two issues. One is that bulk package installations don't produce any status. The other is that bulk errata updates don't produce any status. As far as I see, the latter has been addressed in Satellite 6.1. However, the former (bulk package installations) has not yet been fixed. Should this be filed as a separate issue or maintained here?
Regarding comment 10, we can continue to track the changes needed for the bulk package actions using this bugzilla.
As part of Satellite 6.2 The remote execution feature has been added and provides this functionality via dynflow and a tracked task. Old katello-agent style actions will remain as they are in 6.1.
Moving to ON_QA to validate for bulk package actions view Remote execution
Verified, bulk actions via remote execution forward to job status page, where the user can watch the progress live.
Since the problem described in this bug report should be
resolved in a recent advisory, it has been closed with a
resolution of ERRATA.
