Description Dimitar Yordanov 2014-07-22 12:47:59 UTC
Description of problem:
Obviously  config-folder comparison on WebUI is not supported but there are no restrictions to do so.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create configuration channel via WebUI.
2. Create  configuration folder in the channel.
3. Register a client to Satellite.
4. Add tools channel to the client and execute:
    yum install rhncfg*
    rhn-actions-control --enable-all
5. Assign the configuration channel to the client.
6. Deploy the configuration folder.
    rhncfg-client get
7. Change the owner of the folder that has been just deployed.
8. rhncfg-client verify
user /tmp/folder
7. Schedule comparison of the deployed folder via WebUI.

Actual results:

This action's status is: Completed.
The client picked up this action on 07/22/14 6:28:38 AM EDT.
The client completed this action on 07/22/14 6:28:48 AM EDT.
Client execution returned "Files successfully diffed" (code 0)
Config Files:
/tmp/folder (rev. 1)

Expected results:
Some warning this operation is not supported via WebUI.

Additional info:

341  ->	        if os.path.isdir(path):
342  	            # We dont support dir diffs, ignore
343  	            continue

Comment 1 Stephen Herr 2014-07-22 19:25:04 UTC
I'm choosing to treat this as a bug in the implementation of 1004746 rather than a bug in explaining what is not supported. We do in fact support comparing directories deployed through config management - if you are using the 'rhncfg-client verify' tool. If the command-line client can do something then an action scheduled through the webui should be able to do it to.
