Description Thomas Sippel - Dau 2004-11-30 10:21:10 EST

Is there a scriptable access the operations we can do to manipulate
machine attributes through the RedHat Network Web site. Something
along the lines of rhnreg_ks, for example:

   rhnedit --machinename=fred.ic.ac.uk --addtochannel=edhat-extras \

In particular for the following operations:

   o  delete a machine profile

   o  delete all profiles for that name (when machines are 
      re-installed, they acquire a new system-id. The old one 
      lives on a and RHN zombie)

   o  adding a machine to a channel

   o  adding a channel to an activationkey

   o  deleting an activation key

Preferably those operations would run if only the activation
key was quoted that subscribed the machine (apart from the key
deletion, obviously).

Comment 1 Joe deBlaquiere 2004-11-30 10:58:36 EST
There is an existing API available to script actions. You can find the
documentation on that API at:


There is a list of available APIs at:


If you have specific APIs which are not included in the current set,
please submit a feature request for each one individually and we will
prioritize these according to customer demand and implement as
engineering time permits.
