Description May 2018-05-09 08:14:54 UTC
Description of problem:
Before enabling repos we set the default repo download policy to immediate.
Then we enabled the repos but they are still downloading in an 'on demand' state.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set Default Repository download policy to immediate:
Administer > settings > content > Default Repository download policy -immediate.
2. Enable repos to sync
3. Sync repos

Actual results:
Repos download still uses 'on demand' state.

Expected results:
Repos download should use 'immediate' state

Additional info:
Bypassed by setting the repos to 'immediate' individually:
Content > products > click on repo > set download policy to 'immediate' for each repository.

Hi Brad,
I would guess it's somewhere on the Katello side. Maybe the cause is the same as in BZ#1573590.
It's worth checking that the download policy on the importer is changed or there are no Pulp errors in the logs. If it turns out to be a Pulp issue, please provide API calls with params for the suspicious Pulp behaviour.

I'm changing the component to start investigation on your side.

Thank you for your interest in Satellite 6. We have evaluated this request, and while we recognize that it is a valid request, we do not expect this to be implemented in the product in the foreseeable future. This is due to other priorities for the product, and not a reflection on the request itself. We are therefore closing this out as WONTFIX. If you have any concerns about this, please do not reopen. Instead, feel free to contact Red Hat Technical Support. Thank you.
