Satellite does not support deb repositories that Foreman supports - references to them are removed from our product. I.e. when creating new repository, it is not possible to set type to `deb`.
hammer help still references deb in various ways and supports relevant flags.
Satellite 6.5 snap 3
Steps to reproduce:
1. `hammer repository create --help |grep deb`
2. `hammer repository update --help |grep deb`
3. `hammer repository update --id :id --deb-releases jessie` (:id is id of yum repository)
4. `hammer repository create --product-id 3 --content-type deb --name deb-test`
For 1 and 2, returns 3 deb-related flags
For 3, succeeds
For 4, fails with message that deb is not supported type
There is no mention of deb in help messages.
help message for `hammer repository create` says that --content-type must be one of 'yum', 'deb', 'puppet', 'docker' or 'ostree', but possible value are 'docker', 'file', 'ostree', 'puppet', 'yum'.
Please note that we have the same problem in API where deb related parameters exist too. In fact hammer takes it from there and automatically creates options for the parameters. It would probably be easiest to fix this on server side.
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.
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.
