Description Ivan Necas 2018-10-03 08:08:04 UTC
1. trigger an action that involves `sync_task` (I've used "curl -X POST -k -u admin:changeme -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d '{"name":"product-'$RANDOM'","organization_id":"1"}' https://localhost/katello/api/v2/products", but e.g. host add_subscriptions uses `sync_task` ask well inside.
2. force-kill the dynflow_executor process while the task is running
3. restart foreman-tasks service
4. resume the task that got paused during the restart

Even though the task finished after resuming in point (4), the original web request did not get finished (the curl hangs, passenger-status --show=requests shows the request in the queue
