Description Peter Ondrejka 2020-11-23 13:50:09 UTC
Description of problem:

Add an ability to force subscription-manager re-registration from the template. For mass registration it would be useful to have a flag to use subscription-manager --force to override those previously registered elsewhere. Or alternatively, an option to run “subscription-manager clean” first. 

While it is possible to edit the registration template globally, having the option in the host registration form allows for differentiate policies, and is more user-friendly. Forgetting to un-edit the template could lead to unwanted re-registrations, UI option supports a concious decision about it. 

The risk of overwriting the data should be clearly communicated
