Description of problem:
It's reported that oftentimes customers delete manifest when trying to update subscriptions / upload a newer manifest, in which case all that's needed is a Refresh, and deletion would cause problems by losing/disconfiguring server and client subscriptions etc. The only times where manifest needs to be deleted includes when a Satellite server is no longer active or the manifest has been removed from the Customer Portal.
A confirmation step will address this confusion by explaining to users refresh vs delete and asking if they're sure they want to delete manifest or just go back and refresh it.

Bug 1292242 - [RFE] Add explanation about what manifest refresh and delete do
Per 6.3 planning, moving out non acked bugs to the backlog
Deleting a subscription manifest is one of the most destructive operations that can be done in a Satellite organization. I am STRONGLY in support of giving the user a very stern warning requiring an additional confirmation before deleting a manifest.
Manifest deletion means that
- I have to reupload my manifest.
- I have to reattach subs to
- activation keys.
And while attaching subs is significantly better in Satellite 6.2.2+ this situation is best avoided. It is exceedingly rare to actually in a production scenario to have to DELETE a manifest.
Created redmine issue for this sprint:
