Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 857147
Auto-subscribe window has a confusing name
Last modified: 2014-06-17 20:22:49 EDT
Description of problem:
The auto-subscribe window used to be part of the register dialog and process. When it was moved to a new window so it could be done as a separate action, all the strings remained the same and it looks as if the dialog is still part of the registration window.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start up subscription manager
3a. Open the auto-subscribe dialog by clicking the auto subscribe button
3b. When you register in step 2, don't check "manually subscribe"
3b) If autosubscribing while registering, when the user gets to the subscription part of the process, the user still thinks they are in the registration process. This presents a problem because if the user presses cancel at this point, they are still registered when the dialog closes and it does not actually cancel the register.
3a) If opening the auto-subscribe dialog through its stand alone button, The progress bar reads "Registering" and the window title reads "System Registration". This is misleading and confusing because the system has already been long registered at this point. Additionally the dialog has nothing to do with registering.
The auto-subscribe window should take some measures to let the user know they are not registering at this point.
I would start by changing both the window title and the tile of the progress bar to something that has to do with finding subscriptions.
Attached screen shot to follow.

I think I'm going to push this out again. If we have to change it for 6.4, we can probably do it with existing strings, or get an exception. Not confident in trying to fix this for string freeze.
