Description Andrey Bondarenko 2017-03-08 13:09:34 UTC
Description of problem:

In the IPA there is a possibility to rename users group with the command line interface:

     ipa  group-mod test_group --rename="test1_group"

However, hostgroup-mod does not have --rename option for host groups.

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

    IPA 4.4

Why does the customer need this? (List the business requirements here)  

Often customer havs internal clients renaming team names, systems etc, so it would be great if we could rename hosts groups.

 How would the customer like to achieve this? (List the functional requirements here)  

    ipa hostgroup-mod name --rename="newname"

Does the customer have any specific timeline dependencies and which release would they like to target (i.e. RHEL5, RHEL6)?  


Is the sales team involved in this request and do they have any additional input?  
List any affected packages or components.  

Would the customer be able to assist in testing this functionality if implemented?

Test cases are provided: ipatests/test_xmlrpc/test_hostgroup_plugin.py:TestHostGroup::test_rename_hostgroup() and test_rename_ipaservers().

Comment 9 Kaleem 2020-03-31 06:41:51 UTC
xmlrpc tests added are sufficient to verify this, no additional test cases needed.
