Description jalviso 2017-09-14 07:03:41 UTC
Description of problem:

Applying Installable Errata to a registered Host in Satellite WEBUI displays
misleading information.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):  Satellite 6.2.11

How reproducible: 

All the time

Steps to Reproduce:

Administer > Settings > Katello

Erratum Install Batch Size 	0 	

(Note: I put specific example)
1. Apply Installable Errata to a registered RHEL7.3 host that has 283 Errata
2. Hosts > Content Host > select RHEL7.3 Host with 283 applicable errata > 
3. Errata > Select all boxes (top left) without scrolling down to the last page
4. Click blue text "Select all 283" in:
          "All 40 items on this page are selected. Select all 283."
          "283 results are selected. Deselect all"
5. Select "Apply Selected". 
(Option to go further to dropdown selection and choose "via Katello agent" it doesn't matter.)

Actual results:

Task will process the first 40 Errata on the List, need to go back to the:
    Content Host > Errata tab > 
to continue of scroll down to the last page to select all.

Expected results:

Task should process all 283 Errata. The message says "283 results are selected"
and beside "Apply Selected" button has "283 Selected". 

Additional info:

It is a known fact that scrolling down to the last page will get all errata applied but the display message "283 results selected" is very misleading and should be corrected.

Comment 7 Nikhil Kathole 2018-01-02 13:09:22 UTC

Version Tested:
Satellite-6.3 Snap 30

1. Registered a content host having errata
2. Navigated to Hosts -> content host -> host
3. Clicked on Errata
4. Clicked on checkbox to select all

No link for 'select all N' appeared as per PR that removed Content host errata select all N. (see attachment)

Comment 9 jalviso 2018-01-04 02:44:04 UTC

In my Sat 6.3 Beta test VM, it is working as expected:

- Hosts > Content Hosts > my_host > Errata tab > 

1. Selecting the main box (box left of "Type") to check all boxes works. 
   I got (for example):

          All 13 items on this page are selected. Select all 13.

My only comment here is that; all boxes are already selected but we have this blue clickable text "Select all 13" to select again and lock in. 

2. After clicking "Select all 13"

          13 results are selected. Deselect all

The checks are then locked in and the only way to uncheck is to  click  "Deselect all"

3. Then " Apply Selected" for options.

I will try to test with a Content Host that has more than 13 installable errata.
This UI change is good enough for me and I'm sure with my customer.
