Description of problem:
The python example at http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Network_Satellite/5.3/API_Overview/html/scripts.html doesn't work. The line "list = client.user.list_users(key, 'admin')" is calling the method "user.list_users" which only accepts one parameter - the sessionKey. Simply removing the second parameter 'admin' works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHN Satellite 5.3
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit the "API Overview" documentation page for RHN Satellite
2. Click on "example scripts"
3. Copy/paste the python example
4. Set your URL, LOGIN, and PASSWORD variables
5. Run the script and view the error
user.list_users only accepts one parameter, but the example script has an additional parameter of 'admin', which results in the following error:
xmlrpclib.Fault: <Fault -1: 'redstone.xmlrpc.XmlRpcFault: Could not find method listUsers in class class com.redhat.rhn.frontend.xmlrpc.user.UserHandler'>
After removing the second parameter, the script runs and all users are listed.
I will fix this on the website. Fixing so the line will read:
list = client.user.list_users(key)
Setting NEEDINFO flag to jsherril, as he generated the API docs and can fix them
from the content sources for future releases.
Fails QA. What is on there is not right in a lot of ways. We need to figure out what we're trying to do as the description is:
Below is an example of the user.listAdministeredSystemGroups call being used. Only the name of each group is printed.
The problem is, this method does not exist. And that's what is being called in the documentation:
list = client.user.list_administered_system_groups(key, 'admin')
So, it looks like we both need to figure out what we're trying to demo and fix the code so it works. Used:
Changing to verified:
Same as bug 530022, comment 7 as it was both fixed in same patch
