Description Fred van Zwieten 2016-05-14 06:46:37 UTC
Description of problem:
Currently, export is guided towards the pulp_export_dir which is global. I would like to specify the export directory per hammer export command. ie:

hammer content-view version export --id 3 --environment PROD --export-dir=<spec>

when not specified the global setting applies.

There are usecases outside of ISS which could use this option. Suppose you would like to update remote and offline systems from a laptop. You can export the repo's in a content-view to the laptop and have those systems updated from that laptop. In this case the laptop's filesystem is mounted to the satellite server on a mount-point and export-dir would refer to ths mount-point. Now image multiple users would like to do this concurrently. That would mean the need to use per user mountpoints and per command export-dirs.

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

alternatively, an envionment variable could be used, but that would be less ideal

This RFE also implies that multiple export jobs should be able to run simultaneously.

Comment 2 Fred van Zwieten 2016-05-14 08:49:29 UTC
Actually, i'm going to close this as a (better) alternative is to just run the export to a fixed location and rsync that to wherever and whenever you want.
