Description David O'Brien 2015-11-03 13:28:43 UTC
Description of problem:

The standard output from "hammer import repositories" is vague. For a successful import and sync the only output (unless you use -v) is "Summary: No action taken."

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take a 5.7 export and extract as per user doc
2. Import orgs, etc., as described in the doc
3. Run "hammer import repositories" as described in the doc:

# hammer import repository --synchronize --wait --no-async \
> --csv-file /tmp/exports/repositories.csv
[Foreman] Username: admin
[Foreman] Password for admin: 

<several hours later>

  No action taken.

Actual results:

The import was successful, as evidenced by hammer organization list and hammer product list, but the message doesn't indicate that.

Expected results:

Something along the lines of "All repositories imported and synchronized successfully."

Additional info:

Comment 1 David O'Brien 2015-11-03 13:44:56 UTC
This command could be further improved by adding a progress meter of some sort. The sync can take a LONG time and some people could assume it's in error of some sort and cancel the op.

This is an older bug which has been reported upstream. We are not going to track this bug downstream. When the upstream issue is resolved, the next build will contain the fix. Thank you.
