Upstream bug assigned to jsherril@redhat.com
Comment 2 Bryan Kearney 2016-07-30 12:16:36 EDT
Moving to POST since upstream bug http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/14205 has been closed
Comment 9 Mike McCune 2016-08-13 19:46:26 EDT
This fix does not properly address
Comment 11 Justin Sherrill 2016-08-15 09:02:30 EDT
I'm not certain that this is not properly addressed.  See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1365299 for a very very similar issue with a different traceback and different cause.

Mike, Do you have a full traceback from a satellite where this did not fix the problem?
Comment 12 Mike McCune 2016-08-15 16:14:12 EDT
** Satellite 6.2.0 HOTFIX RPMS **

We are attaching hotfix RPMs for Satellite version 6.2.0. These RPMs can only be used with a Satellite that has tfm-rubygem-katello- installed. Later versions should not be downgraded to include this fix.

Instructions for use:

* Download attached hotfix RPMs from this bugzilla
* install the correct RPM that matches with your version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (el7 or el6 suffix in the RPM).
* restart httpd on your Satellite

After this the dashboard should render correctly.

If you still experiencing a NilClass error please see if the error matches that found within: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1365299 which is being fixed currently.

*** Bug 1360771 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 21 David Davis 2016-08-18 14:08:31 EDT
I think these steps should reproduce the bug:

1. Create an environment (e.g. Dev)
2. Create a content view and promote it to the environment
3. Remove the environment.
4. Visit the dashboard page and verify that it loads successfully.

** Satellite 6.2.1 HOTFIX RPMS **

Attaching 6.2.1 hotfix RPMS, same instructions apply as found in comment #12.

Followed steps detailed in #21 and encountered no errors on the dashboard. The content view events referring to the now deleted environment were also removed.

Comment 33 Mike McCune 2016-08-21 22:22:52 EDT
