I found the cause: foreman_scap_client puppet class was assigned to hostgroup and inherited by host while openscap proxy was assigned to host directly. Apparently, we do not modify inherited class params when openscap proxy changes.
Valid bug, but I do not think this is a regression.

Workaround: make sure openscap proxy and puppet class are both assigned directly to the same entity, do not use inheritance for one and direct assignment for the other.

Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/27095 has been resolved.

Comment 11 Jameer Pathan 2019-07-15 14:57:36 UTC

- verified with
Satellite 6.6.0 snap 11

Test steps:
1. Create host group, assign foreman_scap_client puppet class to host group.
(don't assign openscap capsule to host group)
2. Create host using host group created earlier, also assign 
openscap capsule while creating host.
3. Assign scap policy to host.
4. Run puppet agent -t to configure foreman_scap_client on host.

Foreman_scap_client configured and installed successfully.
