Sean, Discovery manager role is what you need. Permissions are fine-grained objects that are atteched to specific resources. Discovery provisioning is a complex task with many resources involved. I am going to close this.

Note in both 6.2 and 6.3 we had fixes around Discovery roles, latest stable version should work ok.

Comment 2 Lukas Zapletal 2017-01-05 17:09:55 UTC
Ok now I understand.

Comment 3 pm-sat@redhat.com 2017-01-05 19:09:09 UTC
Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/17943 has been resolved.

Comment 8 Daniel Lobato Garcia 2017-08-23 09:26:43 UTC

Version Tested: Satellite-6.3 Snap 12

I created an user with the "Discovery manager" role exclusively, then tried to provision a discovered host using this user. In the form, I chose a host group which triggered the process_hostgroup action without any permission errors. The fields were filled according to the Host group information.
