Description Dylan Gross 2019-09-10 18:46:24 UTC
Description of problem:

  When attempting to execute a report template permission via the CLI, it fails with an error if you attempt to use "--name" of the report template:   "ERF42-5227 [Foreman::Exception]: unknown parent permission for api/v2/report_templates#generate"

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

  Red Hat Satellite 6.5.2

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  # hammer report-template generate --name "Applicable errata" --organization myorg

Actual results:  Returns error:  ERF42-5227 [Foreman::Exception]: unknown parent permission for api/v2/report_templates#generate

Expected results:  Report is executed and out is displayed.

Additional info:

Workaround:  Specifying the ID number of the report template (from "hammer report-template list" does work).  

# hammer report-template list
ID  | NAME             
197 | Applicable errata
198 | Host statuses CSV
199 | Registered hosts 
200 | Subscriptions    

# hammer report-template generate --id 197
 (Resulting successful data omitted)

Comment 3 Dylan Gross 2019-09-10 18:51:31 UTC
Correction - This error is only produced if the --organization is specified.

If left off, it runs the report correctly.   Though since the "hammer report-template generate --help" shows --organization ORGANIZATION_NAME as an option, it's still a bug.

So ... 

  (works):   # hammer report-template generate --name "Applicable errata"

  (doesn't): # hammer report-template generate --name "Applicable errata" --organization myorg
