Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1461898
Channel drop-down menu on the "Manage software packages" page has wrong hierarchy of parent/childs channels
Last modified: 2017-10-19 07:57:19 EDT
Description of problem:
With multiple custom base and child channels on the Sat server, the channel drop down menu on the ../rhn/software/manage/packages/PackageList.do page is messed up.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create number of base channels (five was enough for me, probably will work even with a smaller number)
2. Create a few child channels for each base channel from step 1 (three was enough for me). There is no need for any packages in channels.
3. Go to ../rhn/software/manage/packages/PackageList.do and open the "Channel:" drop down menu.
Hierarchy of channels displayed in the menu is wrong. See the attached picture for an example.
Channel hierarchy in the menu is correct.

I do not think this BZ should be ON_QA. Switching back to MODIFIED.
Reproduced on spacewalk-java-2.5.14-95.el6sat using the reproducer from the initial report. After update to spacewalk-java-2.5.14-97.el6sat and checking the dropdown menu, the structure is correct. See the attached picture.
