Description Albert Castillo 2003-04-16 04:42:53 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; T312461; Q312461)

Description of problem:
1) I would like some additional user options so that I (as an Enterprise 
administrator) can:
    a) Prevent a user from viewing errata/packages that are
       available for his machine (in the system tray applet).
    b) Prevent a user from manually downloading/installing errata
       and packages (by launching "up2date")

This would allow me to prevent a user from viewing and/or attempting to install 
errata and packages. In my case, I want to fully control what is installed on 
the user's system and do not want to allow him to initiate (or even see) any 
errata/packages that are available.

2) I would also like an additional option that would allow me (as an 
administrator) to specify the following for a user:
   a) Only allow a user to view/download/install the errata and
      packages that I specify for him.
   b) Allow a user to view/download/install everything. This is how
      RHN Enterprise currently works.

This has overlap with bug 248475. The other bug though only talks about preventing client side, up2date/yum from pulling down content if system is 'locked'. This bug goes further in asking for UI lock down also. 

Comment 7 Mike McCune 2013-08-16 13:54:43 EDT
NACKing this.  We aren't going to be implementing this directly. 

Maintenence windows may help and if a customer feels strongly about this specific use case above we can re-open.
