Description of problem:
RHN API calls return various details about packages, but there does not seem to be any that returns source package name, as it displayed on package view webui pages (/rhn/software/packages/details/Overview.do).
Obvious candidate that should have that info is packages.getDetails. I'd like to see that in channel.software.listLatestPackages too.
Any updates on this?
As you may already be aware, Red Hat is transitioning from the Red Hat Network (RHN) hosted interface to the Red Hat Subscription Management (RHSM) interface in July 2017. Red Hat has invested in and seen success from RHN for many years, and used that experience to build more robust technologies like RHSM.
If you have not yet migrated your RHN systems to RHSM or you are a Red Hat Satellite customer, please review the information from. https://access.redhat.com/products/red-hat-subscription-management#migration.
Since we are shutting down RHN, no further actions will be taken with this bug or enhancement request. You can find additional information at RHSM product page (https://access.redhat.com/products/red-hat-subscription-management).
