RFE: allow for fallback from 'management' to 'update' on activiation keys
Last modified: 2009-03-24 14:15:07 EDT
Description of problem:
currently we only allow activation keys of 'management' type. We
should either also allow for 'update' type activation keys, or
preferably keys that alloe fallback to a lower-end entitlement
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. have an account that has used up all management entitlements but
still has unused upadte entitlements (e.g the account 'pcfe-test')
2. log in to RHN, go to
the fiels 'Entitlement' is set to Management and cannot be changed
(static text instead of drop-down list)
either a drop down list that allows chosing between 'management' and
'update' or preferably an entry stating 'management, fallback to
update if slots exhausted'
if we use the fallback key, we should really notify the user that a
lower-end key was used in registartion.
Mixing update and management slots is generally quite misleading.
Reassigning for consideration.
