Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 362261
[RFE] Additional Columns for the Package Lists
Last modified: 2017-07-05 11:18:28 EDT
Description of problem:
This RFE pertains to the following three RHN pages:
On each page, the package list contains two columns: "Package Name"
and "Architecture". Please consider adding three more
columns: "Channel", "Yum Group", and "Requirement". The "Requirement" field
should indicate if the package is Mandatory, Default, or Optional.
Also, please consider making the package list sortable by "Package
Name", "Channel", or "Yum Group".
These enhancements would be helpful for a user trying to verify their new
installation. For example, someone with a Desktop base (parent) channel could
determine if they got all of the packages from the Supplementary or the
Workstation child channels.
Output from the Yum groupinfo command for the Web Server group is shown below
to clarify my use of the terms "Yum Group", "Mandatory", "Default",
$ yum groupinfo 'Web Server'

Steps to Reproduce:
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).
