Doc Type: Known Issue
Doc Text:
.`syspurpose addons` have no effect on the `subscription-manager attach --auto` output. In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, four attributes of the `syspurpose` command-line tool have been added: `role`,`usage`, `service_level_agreement` and `addons`. Currently, only `role`, `usage` and `service_level_agreement` affect the output of running the `subscription-manager attach --auto` command. Users who attempt to set values to the `addons` argument will not observe any effect on the subscriptions that are auto-attached.

Description Craig Donnelly 2019-03-12 15:12:31 UTC
Description of problem:
Currently the syspurpose/subscription-manager addons commands do not provide a user any value other than setting a client-side attribute that could be used.

It is important to note to users that at the time of release, addons attributes will not assist or affect the auto-attach function in order to assist in covering a system properly.

Utilizing this attribute at this time will /not/ help attach any addon subscriptions specified.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): RHEL 8 ALL (subscription-manager)

How reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. syspurpose add-addons "High Availability" / subscription-manager addons --add "High Availability"
2. subscription-manager attach --auto

Actual results: 
No HA Subscription

Expected results:
HA Subscription attached, or docs stating lack of functionality.

Additional info:
There are currently no 'addons' attributes being attached to subscriptions for GA. This is out of scope.
