Description Matt Reid 2012-04-13 12:03:44 EDT
Description of problem:
Subscribing manually through the CLI simply repeats the pool id they input as confirmation. It would be nicer if we translated that pool id back to a subscription name for them or also displayed it in some fashion. My assumption is that subscription names are more easily recognizable than pool ids.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1. subscription-mananger list --available
2. copy pool id
3. subscription-manager subscribe --pool=[paste pool id]
Actual results:
[user@sys]# subscription-manager subscribe --pool=[poolid]
Successfully consumed a subscription from the pool with id [pool id].

Expected results:
[user@sys]# subscription-manager subscribe --pool=[poolid]
Successfully consumed a subscription for [subscription name] from pool id: [pool id].


[user@sys]# subscription-manager subscribe --pool=[poolid]
Successfully consumed a subscription for [subscription name].

Additional info:
I imagine there's not much we can do about pools, but it seems pretty painful to manually subscribe. What if they don't have a mouse and they're just ssh'd in? Is there a wizardy way they can copy/paste the pool id and not have to write it down somewhere else and then input it manually?
