Description Sayan Das 2021-04-22 06:12:24 UTC
Description of problem:

Non-Admin users cannot generate the curl command for automated registration while having "Register hosts" role associated with them.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a user called testuser in the Satellite server and assign the "Register hosts" role to the same.

2. Login to Satellite UI using that testuser.

3. Go to Hosts --> All Hosts --> Register Host

4. Select All Parameters as applicable related to registration

5. Click on "Generate Command"

Actual results:

echo "ERROR: not_found";
exit 1

Expected results:

It should be able to generate the curl command with token as expected [ or it can for an admin user ]

Additional info:

The prerequisites section of the doc https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_satellite/6.9/html-single/managing_hosts/index#registering-a-host-to-project-using-the-global-registration-template_managing-hosts mentions following:

"The Satellite user that generates the curl command must have the create_hosts permission."

But it also needs to have "view_smart_proxies" permission.

If I clone the "Register hosts" role, add the "view_smart_proxies" permission for that role and then assign the cloned role to my non-admin user i.e. testuser, I will be able to generate the curl command and register the host as expected.
