Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 61462
[RFE] include system name in Scheduled Actions
Last modified: 2008-10-15 09:23:34 EDT
The list of scheduled actions (in pending, completed and archived) doesn't include
the system name that the action will be against. Can it?
off-topic, but why is /dev/null part of the cc: list? Sounds like a bugzilla config thingy needs fixing :)
I didn't understand at the time that actions can encompass multiple systems, so this
RFE no longer makes sense, unless modified such that for actions where
system_list.length == 1, include system name in action table. Your call.
Bret, this is your code, so it's up to you whether to put system name in on the
special case or not.
the more I think about this RFE, the less I like the resultant code that would
exist. Since the typical cases are 1) new errata, install to lotsa systems or
2) single-system free setup and neither of those benefit from this (#1 has
multiple systems, #2 only has one system so the name would be redundant), I'm
really talking myself out of this one. Sorry guys.
Could this RFE be resurrected? I fail to see the point of the Scheduled action
page now that there is 1 entry per machine per errata. It is impossible to find
meaningful information otherwise.
Maybe the bug here is that task-o-matic creates 1 entry for each errata per each
machine. Back in the old days, each errata would have 1 entry and thus you had
a fighting chance. :)
Currently, my Pending actions has 4,500 entries, making it impossible to use.
so now there is one action for a bunch of servers--this was done in sprint 8
