Description of problem:
Cannot provision a discovery host using a hostgroup with the "edit_hosts" permission, "edit_discovery_hosts" should be enough.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select a hostgroup when provision discovery host without the edit_hosts permission.
Host group doesn't populate
Host select to populate other fields.
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.
Ok now I understand.
Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/17943 has been resolved.
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.
