It would be really nice if RHN had the concept of User Groups, much like how our
linux boxen treat users/groups and ownwership of files.
You should be able to create ad-hoc groups of users and be able to assign the
group as an admin of system groups.
The case usage is this. Say we have a department with 12 sys admins and they
have 20 system groups. Currently, we have to add those 12 people to each system
group. Instead we would like to be able to create 1 group and then add that to
each system groups admin list.
Then when sys admin leaves or transfers departments, we update the group list
and everything is all set.
I believe this would have positive impacts for rhn-satellite and being then able
to use these groups to control access to kickstarts and other data.
So the equivalent of groupadd, chgrp, and chmod g+rwx :)
Why has there been more activity on the subject line of this ticket than
actually commenting on it?
As you may already be aware, Red Hat is transitioning from the Red Hat Network (RHN) hosted interface to the Red Hat Subscription Management (RHSM) interface in July 2017. Red Hat has invested in and seen success from RHN for many years, and used that experience to build more robust technologies like RHSM.
If you have not yet migrated your RHN systems to RHSM or you are a Red Hat Satellite customer, please review the information from. https://access.redhat.com/products/red-hat-subscription-management#migration.
Since we are shutting down RHN, no further actions will be taken with this bug or enhancement request. You can find additional information at RHSM product page (https://access.redhat.com/products/red-hat-subscription-management). If you have further questions, please contact support (https://access.redhat.com/products/red-hat-subscription-management#support).
This same thing applies to the satellite server which isn't EOL. And it really would be a big help for large organizations that aren't centrally managed.
