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
