Description Partha Aji 2011-09-06 19:26:54 UTC
Description of problem:

At the present time create_systems permissions (which is given to those wanting to register a system to an environment or an org) automatically gives CRUD permissions for all the systems in Environment/Organizations. To manage systems better we need a more fine grained control.


1) Change :create_systems verb in environment and org resources to :register_systems . Update the verbs in those models to reflect this.
2) Remove the permission cascade logic in environment/org and systems models

Regarding this issue, I have pushed a simple workaround to allow registration without activation keys.

1634bdc 736384 - workaround for perm. denied for rhsm registration

This should be removed when we refactor permissions for system activations.

Comment 2 Lukas Zapletal 2011-09-08 16:46:59 UTC
Ok. After some dicsussion it turns out the best way is to remove create method, remove it from api controllers and create register method instead.

Comment 3 Bryan Kearney 2011-09-08 22:15:26 UTC
I will assume the current API for subscription manager remains uneffected.

@Parta - could you review my change please?

@Bryan - yes no change in the RHSM API.

Comment 5 Lukas Zapletal 2011-09-15 10:24:05 UTC
And rhsm is also now covered with nice system testing:
