Description Victor Sira 2009-05-20 18:00:51 EDT
Description of problem:

One of the methods for channel.software listErrata has an incorrect description ( 3rd one, which has start and end date for selection criteria ). It currently says: "Description:
Returns list of subscribed systems for the given channel label"

It should instead reflect the ability to select erratas given a time range.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Found on Satellite 5.2.

How reproducible:

Always, install 5.2 and check:
https://<your sat server here>/rhn/apidoc/channel/software/ChannelSoftwareHandler.jsp#listErrata

Steps to Reproduce:

Comment 1 Clifford Perry 2009-05-21 09:56:42 EDT
Pretty certain we have already addressed this within the 5.3 Sat code base. Going to approve for Brad to review and hopefully confirm fixed to then just move to ON_QA. 

Comment 2 Brad Buckingham 2009-05-21 10:45:42 EDT
Correct.  This appears to have already been addressed in Sat 5.3.  Below is the current API doc for channel.software.listErrata containing the start/end date:

Method: listErrata

List the errata applicable to a channel between startDate and endDate.


    * string sessionKey
    * string channelLabel - channel to query
    * dateTime.iso8601 startDate
    * dateTime.iso8601 endDate


    * array:
          o struct - errata
                + int "id" - Errata ID.
                + string "date" - Date erratum was created.
                + string "advisory_synopsis" - Summary of the erratum.
                + string "advisory_type" - Type label such as Security, Bug Fix
                + string "advisory_name" - Name such as RHSA, etc

Moving to ON_QA.
