Portion of original private description:

tl;dr allow subscription quantities to be adjusted in a subscription manager application (manifest), eg. changing an attached sub from quantity 2 to quantity 4 in-place

The requirement is to grow an existing subscription assignment in the subscription management tool. With multiple satellites, it can be difficult to juggle subscriptions without removing a block and forcing clients to re-attach.


Consider we have the following subscriptions added to the manifest (applicable to both SAM & Satellite6)

        Red Hat Satellite 6 (For Transition Only)        10533615        1        09/12/2015
        Employee SKU        10169621        50        01/01/2022

Now suppose we want to increase quantity by 5 for "Employee SKU", in this case we can not update total subscription but we can add.

        Employee SKU        10169621        5        01/01/2022

Though for removal we need to remove total pool and then add again with required quantity.

We have a use case where we are migration systems from SatA to SatB in a process of Dev, QA, Prod. We must make sure that the not migrated systems connected to SatA are not touched. That means also for the subscriptions we have to migrate them in small portions.

That we will migrate 20 out of a pool of 100 subscriptions each time. That means we need 5 times to move subsscription on the RedHat Portal.

In SatA all subscriptions were in 1 big pool. But now on SatB the subscription will have 5 smaller pools.
This makes it for me as end user not easy identifiable how many subscriptions are now really used or free.
