Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 866983
Unable to enable repos for EUS product
Last modified: 2014-09-18 11:32:30 EDT
Description of problem:
The repo listing for a class of entitlements called EUS (Extended Update Service) cannot be fetched. This blocks the user from seeing and enabling the repos, which in turn prevents sync'ing.
The problem with the EUS manifest is that no repository is accessible with the certs in the manifest: there is no way ho Katello could get the listing files.
The problem is that in CFSE it's all or nothing: when one repo is not accessible, the whole import fails. We can make the rule less strict, skipping the unavailable repos, but I'm not sure it's such a good idea, because the user expects the products that he has in the manifest to see in Katello. Therefore the solution is, in case such a manifests exists, to generate new manifest without the products that cause this issue.
Based on https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=852910#c10 I suggest postponing this issue to 2.0 with either release note for 1.1, that EUS products need to have corresponding products included in the manifest, or better not generate such manifests in customer portal: all the content in the manifest should be accessible.
Skipping the content that is not doesn't solve the issue, since the user expects to see those products that included in the manifest
I changed this behavior in commit https://github.com/Katello/katello/commit/f7938ea06c40d50e16f3923b90d927a7b200ec75 so now it won't raise error, just inform user via green notification. Also products without repositories should be visible now.

Could you please check whether this change solves this bug? If yes, it should be moved to POST since it's already in katello master.
I just realized that this PR merge made Red Hat repositories page not working in headpin mode. Fix is in new PR https://github.com/Katello/katello/pull/1479 that is awaiting for review and merge. I'll add git hash when it's merged.
