Description Tom McKay 2015-03-06 14:31:38 UTC
hammer subscription attach --content-host-id $id --subscription-id $id


hammer content-host subscription --attach --subscription-id $id

Although subscriptions are normally added to content hosts by running subscription-manager directly on the host itself, there are cases where being able to do it via scripting w/ hammer is better.

This would move towards parity between hammer and the UI

Will this feature be added to the UI in 'Host Collections|Bulk Actions|Subscriptions' once upstream hammer is sorted?

Sorry, correction on the location 'Content Hosts->Bulk Actions->Subscriptions'

FAILQA on tfm-rubygem-hammer_cli-0.8.0-1

These commands return error:

> hammer host subscription attach --host hostname.redhat.com --subscription-id 1
Failed to attach subscriptions to the host:
  Task 98c9592e-9cee-46e2-af87-f9e49a416ef4: NoMethodError: undefined method `[]' for nil:NilClass
> hammer host subscription attach --host-id 2 --subscription-id 1
Failed to attach subscriptions to the host:
  Task a90acd79-8792-4507-8d5a-49928d8b5bf2: NoMethodError: undefined method `[]' for nil:NilClass

When we try to remove subscription via WebUI, we get this error message. Maybe it is the same problem.

An error occurred removing the subscriptions.Task 86ec0287-8d8b-43e5-a3ff-aff3c4844195: NoMethodError: undefined method `[]' for nil:NilClass

In help, there are missing description for "remove" subcommand.

> hammer host subscription --help
    hammer host subscription [OPTIONS] SUBCOMMAND [ARG] ...

 SUBCOMMAND                    subcommand

 attach                        Add a subscription to a host
 auto-attach                   Trigger an auto-attach of subscriptions
 register                      Register a host with subscription and information.
 unregister                    Unregister the host as a subscription consumer

 -h, --help                    print help

I think, we should have a method for getting of current subscription for host.
Information, which we can see in host-info are insufficient.

Comment 16 Bryan Kearney 2016-10-19 14:09:28 UTC
Upstream bug component is Hammer - Content

Comment 17 Justin Sherrill 2016-12-01 16:24:56 UTC

Did you see any tracebacks in production.log for this?


Comment 18 David Taylor 2017-04-19 16:43:10 UTC
I'm interested in this fix/feature.  Based upon comment 15:

>In help, there are missing description for "remove" subcommand.

In the upstream github pull request that implements this feature https://github.com/Katello/hammer-cli-katello/pull/437 , a comment by the author says it requires another change (one change for host_subscriptions_controller.rb puts in the remove help message):  https://github.com/Katello/katello/pull/6233

The files added/changed in the closed foreman bug http://projects.theforeman.org/projects/katello/repository/hammer-cli-katello/revisions/14c967686b5ef466cd9f30f180cacd7db56507a5

did not include the modified host_subscriptions_controller.rb file.

I'm not sure if this was addressed already, or even helpful as I haven't tested anything.

Comment 19 Martin Korbel 2018-01-11 13:32:45 UTC
Verified on tfm-rubygem-hammer_cli-

The problem with error is gone.
As was mentioned above, the description for "remove" is still missing.
