Description Chris Duryee 2017-07-26 18:20:07 UTC
Description of problem:

A couple of users have looked at the widgets in the dashboard and assumed that "host configuration status" checkins were referring to katello-agent. This caused confusion, since they thought katello-agent was not operational on their hosts.

Ideally, the "Host configuration status", "Host configuration chart" and "run distribution in the last 30 minutes" widgets would have titles such as "host puppet checkin status" or "host configuration management status". Additionally, the "hosts with no reports" subsection may be clearer as "hosts with no config management reports" or something similar, to make it clear that it's not referring to katello-agent.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 6.2.10

Thank you for your interest in Satellite 6. We have evaluated this request, and we do not expect this to be implemented in the product in the foreseeable future. We are therefore closing this out as WONTFIX. If you have any concerns about this, please feel free to contact Rich Jerrido or Bryan Kearney. Thank you.
