Description Sergio G. 2015-03-30 06:44:32 UTC
Description of problem:
If a host isn't in build mode, you cannot check if the kickstart template is rendered properly. Either you enable build mode and use http://sat6host/unattended/provision or you get an authentication cookie and use https://sat6host/unattended/provision?spoof=<hostname>. Both ways are tricky.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Access to http://sat6host/unattended/provision from a host which is not in build mode and you won't get the template
2. Access to https://sat6.host/unattended/provision/?spoof=>hostname> and you will be redirected to login pages
3. No more methods to get it rendered

Expected results:
At least [1] should work, no matter the build status. Or it would be even better to have any API method to get it rendered.

Verified in Satellite 6.2 Snap 20.1. There's now an API to preview templates:

[root@sat-snap-rhel7 ~]# curl -u admin:changeme -H "Content-Type:application/json" -H "Accept:application/json"  https://sat-snap-rhel7.example.com/api/v2/hosts/centos7.example.com/template/provision

{"template":"\n\ninstall\nurl --url...[snip]
