Description Rich Jerrido 2015-10-05 10:46:09 EDT
subscription-manager, the client tool for registering systems to Satellite 6 supports specifying an Environment AND content-view as part of system registration. This should be documented in subscription-managers man page as it is not currently. Upstream documentation is here (http://www.katello.org/docs/2.3/user_guide/content_hosts/index.html) in the 'Registering to a Content View' section. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Additional info:

The manual currently states:

"  --environment=ENV
              Registers the system to an environment within an organization."

A possible newer version of this, which would solve the requirements of this BZ would be"

"  --environment=ENV
              Registers the system to an environment within an organization. If there is an on-premise subscription service such  as  Red Hat Satellite 6,  this parameter can be used to also specify which Content View in the environment the system should be associated with in the form of 'Environment/Content View'. For example: 'Devel/MyView'"
