Description of problem: After upgrade default_download_policy changed from "on_demand" to "immediate"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the 6.8 base version.
2. Check the default_download_policy value before the upgrade.
3. the set value is "on_demand"
4. Upgrade the satellite from 6.8 to 6.9.
5. default_download_policy value changed from "on_demand" to "immediate"
default_download_policy value changed after upgrade.
default_download_policy value should remain the same after upgrade.
the default on new installs changed as part of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1732056 in 6.7, its strange that its being reset upon upgrade to 6.9. we will investigate
I'm not able to reproduce this. I installed Satellite 6.8, changed default_download_policy to 'on_demand' (from immediate). Then upgraded to 6.9 and examined the administer > settings > content page.
Are you able to reproduce on the latest snap?
If you can reproduce, being pointed to a reproducer server might be helpful
After talking with Devendra, we discovered that the satellite in question had been upgraded from 6.6. The default download policy was updated from 'on_demand' to 'immediate' as part of 6.7, but it appears that the default value wasn't actually updated in the db at that time. This is likely due to a bug in the settings related code. It seems that this bug was fixed as part of 6.9 though, and thus the default value was updated resulting in a change in behavior.
Here's the 6.7 bz that changed it: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1732056 and it includes appropriate docs text. So in reality this was a 6.7/6.8 bug in settings as the change was expected at that time. As a result we're going to close this bz
