Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
System Engine incorrectly parsed the candlepin-cert package when attempting to promote a changeset containing a candlepin provider. This caused a partial import of the package and with an error: "Failed to promote changeset". This fix corrects the logic that parses the package names for the certificate package. Changeset promotion now works without error.

Description james labocki 2012-05-02 17:32:55 EDT
Description of problem:
Sequence of steps:
    Created a template which had our custom RHEL distro and custom candlepin prouct
    Created changeset containing RHEL product, candlepin repo, and system template. 

    Promoted changeset from Library to Dev environment

    Promotion failed with:

    Failed to promote changeset 'my first changeset" to Dev environment

    However, the dev environment contains the promoted content

    Next, try to download the template from the Dev environment and receive:

    error At least repository must be present to export a TDL

    Exactly one distribution must be present to export a TDL

    One thing I noticed, is that during each promotion, all repo's associated with the promotion had a sync kicked off for it.

Brad dug around a bit and it turns out it is a result of the way Katello parses the NVREA of the RPM put into the template name:


Katello improperly thinks the hyphens are the separators between the fields and ends up storing:

#<SystemTemplatePackage id: nil, system_template_id: 8, package_name: "candlepin-cert", version: "consumer", release: "seng1.example.com", epoch: nil, arch: nil>

bumping to 1.0.z since the bug is very difficult as an end user to understand why the promotion is failing.
