Description Partha Aji 2022-01-17 18:47:35 UTC
The `content_disconnected` setting is currently used to describe 2 different things
1) To disable access the Subscription Portal and update entitlements
2) To indicate that the cdn is inaccessible and red hat repositories can be disabled

However the "Connected ISS" work introduces a new meaning of Disconnected. Here the downstream satellite is pulling content from an upstream satellite and not the CDN. Instead of conflating "Disconnected" to be "Air-Gapped Disconnected" only, we need to split the definition of disconnected by introducing 2 things

1) Rename 'content_disconnected' to 'subscription_connection_enabled' (which means the user can connect to the portal and setup entitlements.)
2) Add a "air-gapped", "cdn" or "satellite" type value to CDN Configuration (which is setup for each org) to clearly delineate the use cases.
If The type setting is 'air-gapped' the user should not allowed to enable/disable repositories (user has to use import/export for that.)

Comment 4 Bryan Kearney 2022-01-25 20:05:25 UTC
Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite since the upstream issue https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/33951 has been resolved.

Comment 10 Radek Mynar 2022-05-23 15:18:38 UTC
Setting 'content_disconnected' was renamed to 'subscription_connection_enabled'. 

CDN configurations is editable in UI (Content->Subsriptions->CDN Configuration) and using CLI (hammer organization configure-cdn ...) for each organization.

All these settings work as specified in description.

VERIFIED with Satellite 6.11 SNAP 20 @ RHEL7.9
