Because candlepin consumers are used to transfer subscriptions to downstream candlepin's via the manifest, they are exempt from JS rule checks so they can transfer anything.

Indeed this is where the SLA filtering happens, so that explains why Candlepin consumers are not seeing this.

However the use case of using subscription manager to register as a Candlepin consumer is not something any end user should actually do. (that functionality is purely for dev/QE purposes)

Similarly I don't think a Candlepin consumer with an SLA assigned to it is something that should actually be done either. (they also would never use autosubscribe)

As such I propose this is definitely not something to worry about for 6.3, it may not be something worth fixing at all, as I don't think there's an actual use case here.

Moving to 5.9.
