Description Rich Jerrido 2014-10-19 11:20:26 UTC
Description of problem:
The rhn-migrate-classic-to-rhsm script can be used to migrate an existing user of a 'Classic' product (RHN Classic and/or Satellite 5.x) to a certificate based platform (RHSM, SAM, Satellite 6). 

Activation keys are frequently used in automation scripts so that users do not have to embed user/name passwords in scripts. Both SAM & Satellite 6 currently support activation keys for this purpose. 

This RFE requests the addition of activation key support to rhn-migrate-classic-to-rhsm to support this. (The underlying subscription-manager tooling supports this)
