Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
System Engine did not automatically detect new repositories released by a Content Provider. This fix creates a scheduled check of the repositories. This checks when new content is available and refreshes System Engine with the content. Administrators also refresh the content manually using the command: # katello provider refresh_products --name 'Red Hat' --org [Organization_Name]

Description Ivan Necas 2012-03-22 10:39:05 EDT
Description of problem:
When CDN releases new version (let's say of RHEL), Katello should provide a way how to pull the new repositories from the CDN.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. update "Red Hat" provider url to 
   this fake cds has only 15 version of zoo product
2. import manifest available on 
3. update "Red Hat" provider url to 
  this fake cds has new verzion 16 of zoo product
Actual results:
No way how to get the new repository from CDS.

Expected results:
Cli and UI feature to refresh "Red Hat" provider repositories from CDS.
Comment 4 Ivan Necas 2012-03-23 08:28:41 EDT
The support for refreshing the content repositories from CDN in CLI/API added in commit cbc446b97ac8f19e7f2f8d29370776aabe370486:

In case new repository is added in CDN (e.g. when new releasever or
architecture support is released), there is a command that is able to retrieve
this new repositories:

  katello provider refresh_products --name "Provider" --org "Organization"

It works only for Red Hat provider

There is still needed to add this support into UI as well.
Comment 5 Ivan Necas 2012-05-04 04:07:37 EDT
After discussion with Mike it seems more reasonable to create a periodic task that would check if something changes at the CDN regularly. However we need some mechanism for scheduling regular tasks.
Comment 6 Ivan Necas 2012-05-21 10:17:30 EDT
I will add a script to katello source that will be executable by cron.daily that will check changes on CDN periodically.
Comment 7 Ivan Necas 2012-05-29 10:57:22 EDT
Solved by a cron script run daily, in commit 06b352511b398e072e67295484d80ec34844750e
Comment 11 Og Maciel 2012-10-02 22:29:06 EDT
@Ivan, I followed the steps mentioned in the issue on how to verify and ran the command:

  katello provider refresh_products --name "Provider" --org "Organization"

However, you also mention a cron job that would this every so often. Is there a better way to verify this issue?
Comment 12 Ivan Necas 2012-10-03 02:49:46 EDT
There is a script `/etc/cron.daily/katello-refresh-cdn` which does the trick. So it's possible to check this by either

   1. running this script manually
   2. moving to cron.hourly, which is a bit better to verify
