Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 499154
Don't use 404 as the catchall error on GET requests
Last modified: 2017-07-05 11:13:13 EDT
jeckersb has wasted much time tracking down 404 errors in client requests for files (rpms, repodata). It turns out that we return 404 in places where a 401 or similar would be more appropriate. For example, if a client requests an rpm from a channel that they aren't subscribed to.
Classifying the results properly will ease the burden on SOC/eng-support next time they have to track down something.
**NOTE: make sure clients can handle this gracefully.
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).
