Description John Sefler 2011-08-03 16:23:44 EDT
Description of problem:
With help from cduryee@redhat.com, I am putting together some automated tests for subscription-manager redeem that will run against an onpremises candlepin server with a testing patch that simulates the code from aedwards to replace the candlepin DefaultSubscriptionServiceAdapter.java.

When all is good, it appears that aedwards' SubscriptionServiceAdapter.java will thrown a new AcceptedRequestException with a message "Your subscription activation is being processed and should be available soon."

This is good because in the subscription-manager-gui, an information dialog will be presented to the user.

On the command line, an exit code of 255 is being returned.  This is bad.  As such, my automated tests believe that there is an error.  We are expecting an exit code of 0 for a successful call to redeem.



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@jsefler-onprem-62server ~]# rpm -q subscription-manager
subscription-manager-0.96.4-1.git.80.a26379e.el6.x86_64


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
[root@jsefler-onprem-62server ~]# subscription-manager redeem --email=jsefler@redhat.com
Your subscription activation is being processed and should be available soon. You will be notified via email once it is available. If you have any questions, additional information can be found here: https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-53864.
[root@jsefler-onprem-62server ~]# echo $?
255

^^^ Expected an exit code of 0

Comment 4 John Sefler 2011-08-22 11:24:15 EDT
Verifying Version...
[root@jsefler-onprem-62server ~]# rpm -q subscription-manager
subscription-manager-0.96.6-1.git.8.6e109e4.el6.x86_64


[root@jsefler-onprem-62server ~]# subscription-manager redeem --email=tester@redhat.com
Your subscription activation is being processed and should be available soon. You will be notified via email once it is available. If you have any questions, additional information can be found here: https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-53864.
[root@jsefler-onprem-62server ~]# echo $?
0

^^^ VERIFIED The AcceptedRequestException thrown by SubscriptionServiceAdapter.java is results in an exitCode of 0 by subscription-manager.



Also verifying error case when the candlepin server does NOT support subscription redemption and throws a ServiceUnavailableException...
[root@jsefler-onprem-62server ~]# subscription-manager redeem --email=tester@redhat.com
Standalone candlepin does not support redeeming a subscription.
[root@jsefler-onprem-62server ~]# echo $?
255

^^^ VERIFIED The error case results in a 255 exit code by subscription-manager.
