by the manual reproducer desribed in comment #0:

1) Have a Satellite with Internal Capsule set up 

2) Clone Manager role but edit filter for Capsule and remove "edit_smart_proxies" perm

3) Create non-admin user "tester" and assign him the only role created in previous step

4) As user "tester" provision a host

5) As user "tester" try to set the host from previous step to Build

Popup appears with the info but no warnings/errors


Popup appears with the following error

(x) The following errors may prevent a successful build:


    Failure deploying via capsule <SAT_FQDN>: true.
