Description Ohad Levy 2014-11-18 08:17:28 UTC
I dont think it makes any sense to enable it by default, as its only used by discovery, for the rest it could be considered security concern?

also, a configuration file template is missing?

Verified with:
sat6.1 beta snap5

By default, its set to false. 

[root@dhcp201-171 settings.d]# cat /etc/foreman-proxy/settings.d/facts.yml 
:enabled: false

Hey Orabin.. Could you please confirm if anything else QE needs to check ?

Comment 10 orabin 2015-03-15 09:19:42 UTC
I would also do this:

1. start the smart-proxy (without changing the config file)
2. add the smart-proxy to foreman
3. check that 'facts' feature is not in the list of features

This should be enough but you can also add:

4. change the configuration to:
:enabled: true
5. restart the proxy
6. refresh features of the proxy
7. check that facts is now one of the features

Comment 11 Sachin Ghai 2015-03-16 06:33:54 UTC
Verified with: 
sat6.1 beta snap6 compose2 (Satellite-6.1.0-RHEL-6-20150311.1).

By default facts feature set to false.

# cat /etc/foreman-proxy/settings.d/facts.yml 

:enabled: false


Restarted the foreman-proxy service, and UI doesn't show the facts features on refreshing features.

later, I enabled the facts feature if it works and on enabling it I can see it on UI.
