Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 480648
Cannot add new Satellite Admin from user panel
Last modified: 2013-01-10 19:19:33 EST
Description of problem:
Satellite creates a deafult new user that is BOTH Organizational admin AND Satellite Admin. This user cannot create a new Satellite Admin (greyed out).
And hence there is no way of creating a new Satellite Administrator
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to users panel
2. Create new user
3. Attempt to change priveleges of user to Satellite admin --which cannot be done
greyed out choice box for Satellite Admin
Ability to successfully add Satellite Admin
You actually can create new Satellite administrators, you just need to go to :
and manage it on this page.
but I think we should modify the user details page to support adding/removing sat admin from individual users.
Hello, I told that in addition that the Satellite Tools tab is the place to go to do this. Is that correct?
Comment #2 - yes - under Satellite Tools.
The granting of Satellite Admin is a Satellite Administrative task, which is why it is kept within one central location and not split out under the 'users' tab of the Satellite - which is mainly used by Org Admins to manage user roles within their Org.
Good enough for me as it makes sense as to HOW to get it done - which was my primary goal.
Is there a way we can get two things accounted for:
1) Documentation that clearly explains (and I think there is a bit of a reference, but perhaps geared to 5.0 satellite? ) as what the primary difference is between the roles, and what their capabilities are.
2) The addition of a section that indicates how to add such a user trough Sat-tools as explained above by Clifford Perry.
