Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1282558
Unable to select lots of hosts from the GUI (cannot select > 50 hosts at a time)
Last modified: 2017-09-14 15:23:14 EDT
Description of problem:
I have changed the hosts per page option to 50 but when searching for lots of hosts for group editing I still cannot select > 50 hosts at a time. There should be a way to select ALL matching hosts from any page for bulk editing.
This becomes very tedious to edit lots of hosts especially when I have multiple thousands of hosts to edit. (e.g. put them into build mode or change their location)
There is also no easy way to do this via hammer. The only way I could find to do it was to use hammer to search for the hosts I wanted, save that information to a file, and then loop through the file and run hammer update commands on each one.
