[RFE] when to download the productid file from the repodata on the CDN
Last modified: 2017-07-06 10:10:19 EDT
Description of problem:
Today, subscription-manager's yum plugin called "product-id" is used to download the repodata/productid file from the CDN when a package is yum installed from the CDN's repository. The result will be a newly installed product certificate that lands in /etc/pki/product/. I believe there is very little logic within subscription-manager to re-download the productid or detect that a newer replacement has been placed in the repodata directory on the CDN. In the event that a business decision was made to re-name the product (or simply fix a typo in the product name) as observed in https://projects.engineering.redhat.com/browse/CONTENT-436 where product 290's name was changed from "Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform" to "Red Hat OpenShift Enterprise", today's subscription-manager would never download the productid with the new name.
Use this RFE to revisit the logic needed to appropriately re-download the productid from the repodata on the CDN.
