Description of problem:
The error behavior of registering with a bad username/password is different from RHEL 7.1, and also different from the existing errors. If a user puts in no username and no password, an error dialog box comes up but the username/password dialog frame is still open (though not focused) in the background.
However, if a bad username/password is entered, an error dialog pops up warning the user, but the username/password dialog frame is closed in the background. Thus when the user clicks OK on the error dialog, the user is taken back to the
MY Installed Products tab.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@rhel7-2-test-stoner entitlement]# rpm -qa | grep subscription
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click Register button from My Installed Products
2. In new dialog frame, type in an invalid user/pw
3. Click Register button
vs. no username,pw
1. same as above
2. leave username and password blank
3. same as above
(compares nouser/pw with baduser/pw)
If a user enters a bad username and password, the error dialog should still pop up, but the background register dialog should stay and become enabled when the user clicks OK on the error dialog.
This goes back to the last minute error handling changes made for RHEL6 firstboot.
I think 21fcc5b210949bd0721f0148449587c088cba61b in master may fix this already.
Confirmed this is fixed in 21fcc5b210949bd0721f0148449587c088cba61b in master
The broken behavior was never shipped; closing as NOTABUG
