Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 335401
SDC system status errata preview widget broken in some cases
Last modified: 2010-10-06 10:15:59 EDT
Description of problem:
On the SDC page for some (not all) systems, the little "system status" errata
preview widget is repeating the same errata multiple times, sometimes 2 out of 3
times sometimes 3 out of 3. I double-checked and the links in the cases I saw
were pointing to the same eid. The systems in question also had more errata
applicable than just the one that was repeated.
The widget *should* show, in cases where there are more than 3 errata applicable
to a system, the 3 most severe errata applicable (order most important to least:
security critical, security moderate, security important, security low, bugfix,
enhancement), and where severity is equal i think alphabetical order is used.
the same erratum should never be repeated. it's okay if multiple erratum for the
same package are shown as long as the eids are different.
i will add sid and login details in a private comment below.

This is a HOSTED bug. a SATELLITE clone of this bug is bug 335411.
The issue here is that the widget is selecting from the package-per-errata-per-system data, instead of just errata-per-system. If we point the widget at the right data source, it should fix the problem.
