Description Sandro Mathys 2009-08-14 08:29:08 UTC
Right now, one has to sync the base channel and each child channel one by one. It should be possible to specify --with-childs together with the base channel (i.e. either --channel=<base> --with childs or --with-childs=<base>) to sync them all together.

Since in future spacewalk releases, it should be possible to have >1 repo per channel, all repos of base+childs should be synced with this option.

As for '--label is mandatory', which obviously doesn't work well with this new feature, see:

Comment 1 Jan Hutař 2010-08-24 09:19:53 UTC
Hello, just tested on SWnightly and there is no --with-childs option or providing more --channel options do not work and accepts only last one.

Comment 2 Jan Hutař 2010-08-24 10:47:25 UTC
Oh, for issue in comment #1 reported separate bug, so please ignore it as it is different use-case.

Mass-moving to space13.

Comment 5 Miroslav Suchý 2011-04-11 07:31:16 UTC
We did not have time for this one during Spacewalk 1.4 time frame. Mass moving to Spacewalk 1.5.

Aligning under space16.

Comment 8 Dimitar Yordanov 2014-04-24 15:24:28 UTC
I would like to add to this RFE two more useful option.

[-l|--list] List the Custom channels available on the Satellite server with the associated repositories.

[-d|--dry-run] Do a test run. No sync takes place. Useful when the repositories are set in the Satellite database and the user want to check the channel->repository configuration beforehand.

Comment 9 Stephen Herr 2014-04-24 18:20:45 UTC
Accepting pull request https://github.com/spacewalkproject/spacewalk/pull/41 which adds the --list option mentioned in comment 8. I expect patches for the other options mentioned in this bug to be following shortly.

Accepting pull request https://github.com/spacewalkproject/spacewalk/pull/51 which adds the --dry-run option. Now we are just waiting for a --with-children option or similar.

Accepting pull request https://github.com/spacewalkproject/spacewalk/pull/86 which adds the --parent option. If you supply a channel label with --parent then the specified channel and all of its children will be synced. This resolves the request in comment 0.
