Admins can add their own global kickstart snippets via GUI
5) What Will Success Look Like:
GUI option to add and maintain custom global snippets.

next satellite release

8) Affected Packages:
9) Sales Sponsor:

10) Rh Business Opportunity With Customer:
big customer 60K Euro per year, with 6500+ RHEL-systems
11) Status And Risk To Contract If Not Satisfied:
To loose 60K Euro per year.
Customer is well connected with the spacewalk community and might get
dissatisfied with our service if he gets stuff done there more easy.
12) If this request is vendor specific, has the customer engaged the
partner as well?:

Is this being watched at all?
Last comment of this BZ has been made more than a year ago. It's tracked under sat-short and according to definition it likely can be implemented within 12-18 months. Now we are far behind that considering the creation date.
We need to update customer and answer "No, we are not going to implement it" is just fine. The current situation when we have to tell customer in the way "it may be implemented, we'll keep you updated" is not feasible :-)
Moving to ON_QA as Satellite 6 (and Foreman) provide global template snippets which can be edited via the web UI, the remote CLI or the API.
This was delivered with Satellite 6.0 which was released on 10 September 2014.
