Red Hat Satellite engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on Satellite to Red Hat Jira ( If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "Satellite project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs will be migrated starting at the end of May. If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "Satellite project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Description Tomas Strachota 2015-02-10 13:17:23 UTC
Improve interface manipulation in host form. We could use similar approach that Kyle was suggesting for the OS page (regarding creating objects of one type directly in the edit page of
another). Perhaps we could use this idea to create network objects on the fly, and then display a more condensed version as each is saved, to reduce screen clutter?

Also we should display most important networking information (primary/provision IP/MAC) in host detail so we don't have to edit or display (read-only) the host form.

We should also display more information about subnet that's being assigned to the interface (e.g. vlanid, boot mode and such)

Comment 6 Sachin Ghai 2015-03-09 09:37:20 UTC
I think this bz is related to new interface model window under host --> network form.

Now this model window shows the configured interface with identifier, type and mac. Also subnet page shows bootmode and IPAM etc. Please see the attached screenshot of configured BMC interface.
