Description John Sefler 2015-10-01 16:43:50 UTC
Description of problem:
As a consequence of attempts to address bug 1257179 and bug 1243707, the newly introduced Back button in the subscription-manager-gui has no effect (FIRST PANEL ONLY) and the dialog has no obvious way to be canceled.

Arguably one could say that since you are on the first registration panel there is no more going "Back" which explains why the Back button has no effect.  It's just not user friendly to be able to click a button that does nothing.  Instead, this button should be either disabled or undisplayed when on the first panel of registration.

Workarounds for Canceling:
 1. right click on the gnome widow decoration and choose "Close"
 2. Hit the "Esc" key

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@jsefler-7 ~]# rpm -q subscription-manager-gui

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:

Expected results:
Either disable or undisplay the back button on first panel of registration workflow

deferring to rhel-7.3.0 due to severity and time schedule remaining for rhel-7.2.0
