For testing: Change the Repository URL on the Red Hat Provider page to a bad url, then visit a system's Details page. Note error message in log and no choices when editing release version.
As a sysadmin I would like feedback as to why I see no releases in my Release Version drop down on my details tab when my cdn is unreachable.
CDN outages can occur and it could be that I have specified a bad cdn, I'd like to know that something is wrong to explain why I see nothing in my drop down. A blank drop down doesn't tell me anything.
Technical note added. If any revisions are required, please edit the "Technical Notes" field
accordingly. All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
If the CDN is not reachable or an error occurs getting the available release versions, the System/Details page is not usable and the "Release Version" dropdown menu is blank.
