Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 552318
deploying content to a resource never gets out of "In Progress"
Last modified: 2015-02-01 18:25:56 EST
I'm trying to do something using content - specifically, pushing and deleting content packages (note: this is NOT content-backed resource creation - its just pushing content to an existing resource for that resource's use). I wrote a plugin that defines its own content package types - I can have the agent discover packages, the GUI can upload packages and push those packages to my plugin component and I can remove those packages. All of that works on the agent side. However, in the server/GUI, things are broken. When I go to the content tab, anytime I try to do something (upload a package, delete packages) the audit history gets stuck in "in progress" state. None of my requests get out of that "in progress" state (even though I can confirm that the agent/plugin side of things is finished doing what it needed to do - and it did it successfully). So, some how, the content subsystem has a bug where it can't complete a content workflow from server-to-agent. This does NOT involve content repos or channel subscriptions - I am essentially using the browser-file-upload capability to upload a package and push it directly out to the agent.
In addition, after I deploy more than one piece of content, only the last one is shown in the "deployed" subtab of the Content tab.
Temporarily adding the keyword "SubBug" so we can be sure we have accounted for all the bugs.
new = Tracking + FutureFeature + SubBug
making sure we're not missing any bugs in rhq_triage
that's not good. aside from the individual issue here, we probably want a job that comes along and periodically sweeps for things stuck in the "in progress" state, and forcefully cancels them.
