Comment 14 tstrych 2019-08-26 15:12:44 UTC
I reproduce the steps and hammer host update --id <id> --location-id <id> works only for location which is already assigned to host. 
When I use another location id I still get:
Could not update the host:
  Resource host not found by id <host-id>
Using sat 6.6 snap 17 with this package version: tfm-rubygem-hammer_cli_foreman-

Comment 15 Oleh Fedorenko 2019-08-27 13:07:35 UTC
This patch adds new options e.g. --new-location-id. If you want to update the location for a host, you should use hammer host update --id <host id> --location-id <loc id for scope> --new-location-id  <id of new location>.

Have you tried that?

Comment 16 Radovan Drazny 2019-09-04 15:47:16 UTC
I have tested changing the location using the --new-locatioin-id switch. This works, and I was able to change host's location . Satellitet 6.6 Snap 17, tfm-rubygem-hammer_cli_foreman-

$ hammer location list
ID | TITLE            | NAME             | DESCRIPTION
3  | AnotherLocation  | AnotherLocation  |            
2  | Default Location | Default Location |            
$ hammer host info --id 3 | grep Location
Location:                 Default Location
$ hammer host update --id 3 --location-id 2 --new-location-id 3
Host updated.
$ hammer host info --id 3 | grep Location
Location:                 AnotherLocation
