RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

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.
