Satellite 6 requires variables to be listed in defaults/main.yml in order to import/display them in UI. Some of variables such as the one for setting the policy is not listed there and default is hardcoded in tasks/main.yml. After a discussion with pcahyna, it should be posible to extract all of them.

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

last released version, 1.0.0

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. look at role directory

Actual results:

defaults directory is missing

Expected results:

Additional info:

in master branch, some of variables are already there

--- Additional comment from Pavel Cahyna on 2019-02-08 17:05:45 UTC ---

The easy cases are there (in master), what is missing is selinux_state and selinux_policy, whose absence has a special meaning. It would be needed to let "null" have this special meaning instead and set the defaults to null.

test is available as tests/tests_default_vars.yml in the selinux role

Comment 3 Pavel Cahyna 2019-06-03 16:29:13 UTC
... and in the timesync role for the analogous problem in timesync
