Hello, thanks for the report.

Adding new capsule is fully documented, there's a guide about that:


The Create Capsule form is actually not needed during the process as the installer registers Capsule automatically.

URL is just Capsule service URL, there is nothing more to say about it. Port varies depending on installation scenario (with or without Katello), so I'd rather avoid mentioning it.

Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/29178 has been resolved.
