Description Corey Welton 2018-07-09 13:29:35 UTC
Description of problem:

The ordering of the subscriptions appears to be different between the two pages. Add Subscriptions seems to be sorted based on Contract #, whereas Subscriptions seems to be sorted by sub name.

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

6.4 snap 10

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use a manifest, preferably one containing a large # of subscriptions
2. Note ordering (based on contract number). Navigate to Add Subscriptions and add one sub from those available to you.
3. Navigate back to your Subscriptions page. Look for the subscription you just added.

Actual results:
The ordering is different, and whatever you added will show in the list based on where it lands alphabetically.

Expected results:

Congruent sorting across the two pages, or possibly just documentation noting sort orders.

Additional info:
I don't think this is a critical issue but it's worth looking into.

Neither the subscriptions nor upstream subscriptions API will allow the requested sorting.

When attempting to sort by name on the upstream subscriptions API:

13:41:11 rails.1   | 2018-08-08T13:41:11 [E|app|00b13] exception when talking to a remote client: 500 Internal Server Error RestClient::InternalServerError: 500 Internal Server Error
13:41:11 rails.1   |  | Body: {"displayMessage":"Runtime Error could not resolve property: name of: org.candlepin.model.Pool at org.hibernate.persister.entity.AbstractPropertyMapping.propertyException:62","requestUuid":"c4c5504f-254c-4116-8c7b-ef9a8e3d8cc0"}

When attempting to sort by contract_number on the subscriptions API:

{"displayMessage":"undefined method `to_sym' for nil:NilClass\nDid you mean?  to_m","errors":["undefined method `to_sym' for nil:NilClass\nDid you mean?  to_m"]}

Hey Corey,

We're tracking this issue upstream and when Christine was last looking into it she found we need support from (hosted) Candlepin in order to do the sorting for 'Add Subscriptions' properly: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1600588

The above RFE tracks that effort. We could work around that, but we would be sorting on the server side and not relying on the database - and so there could be performance impacts. Probably not much since we are using pretty small pages (default 20) from the API, but worth mentioning. I'm inclined to wait until we have official Candlepin support before making any changes since this is not critical. What do you think?

The Satellite Team is attempting to provide an accurate backlog of bugzilla requests which we feel will be resolved in the next few releases. We do not believe this bugzilla will meet that criteria, and have plans to close it out in 1 month. This is not a reflection on the validity of the request, but a reflection of the many priorities for the product. If you have any concerns about this, feel free to contact Red Hat Technical Support or your account team. If we do not hear from you, we will close this bug out. Thank you.

Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/24308 has been resolved.

Comment 10 Cole Higgins 2019-11-20 21:18:28 UTC
Bug verified in 6.7 snap 2. 

Both the subscriptions page and add subscriptions page are sorted by subscription name, not contract number.
