Description Max Spevack 2004-09-02 15:34:04 UTC
Description of problem:

In the docs for RHN Satellite 3.5 beta, section 5.2 and 5.3 of
RHN-satellite.pdf discuss giving the CertAdmin role to a user,
creating new entitlement certificates, and uploading them.

This functionality isn't there, if you follow the steps in the doc. 
Check with robin, but I believe that this is not supposed to be
customer-visible, and therefore shouldn't be documented.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHN Satellite 3.5 Beta

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  See description
Actual results:
If you try to follow the instructions, you find that the features
referenced aren't there.

Expected results:
It shouldn't be documented.

Comment 1 Clay Murphy 2004-09-02 22:28:43 UTC
Excellent catch, Max. I'm claiming, bumping the version and aligning
to the 3.6 documentation tracking bug.

Comment 2 Clay Murphy 2004-09-03 17:26:52 UTC
Reassigning to Robin to confirm, as Max suggested.

Comment 3 Clay Murphy 2004-09-03 17:28:04 UTC
Setting to NEEDINFO. Robin, can you confirm that the Certificate
Administrator role introduced in 350 is internal to RHN only and not
available to customers? Thanks

Comment 4 Robin Norwood 2004-09-27 14:29:45 UTC
That is correct - this feature is internal-only (for now).


And BZ #107039

Comment 5 Clay Murphy 2004-09-28 17:51:34 UTC
OK, I'm reclaiming this bug and will remove the offending text.
Specifically, the sections of the Entitlements chapter of the Sat.
install guide need removal/rewriting. I will also ensure the Satellite
3.6 release notes contain no mention of this internal feature.

Comment 6 Clay Murphy 2004-10-14 17:18:14 UTC
OK, these changes have been made and will be visible in the 3.6
versions of the Satellite Release Notes and Installation Guide.

First, references to the interface have been removed from both the
Major Enhancements and Documentation sections of the release notes.
Second, its references have been removed from the Entitlements chapter
(5) in both the introductory text and by deleting the entire
Generating the Certificate section (formely 5.2).
Finally, I removed the Finding the Entitlement Certificate Interface
section (formerly from the Maintenance chapter.

Setting to ON_DEV.

Comment 7 Todd Warner 2004-10-21 16:52:09 UTC
QA push. {ON_DEV,QA_READY} --> ON_QA

Comment 8 Clay Murphy 2004-11-05 22:10:21 UTC
Shifting this from the 3.6 hosted doc tracking bug (rhn360docs) to the
3.6 sat tracking bug (rhn360satdocs) to reflect the timeline in which
this change will appear.

Comment 9 Todd Warner 2004-12-01 11:55:53 UTC
