Description Sharath Dwaral 2013-03-13 14:11:19 EDT
Description of problem:
For some commands there is tab completion only for modules and some have it both for modules and options.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

# rpm -qa | egrep "subscription-manager|python-rhsm"

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Scenario 1:  Command: subscription-manager

# subscription-manager --help
Usage: subscription-manager MODULE-NAME [MODULE-OPTIONS] [--help]

Primary Modules:

  attach         Attach a specified subscription to the registered system
  list           List subscription and product information for this system
  refresh        Pull the latest subscription data from the server
  register       Register this system to the Customer Portal or another subscription management service
  release        Configure which operating system release to use
  remove         Remove all or specific subscriptions from this system
  unregister     Unregister this system from the Customer Portal or another subscription management service

Other Modules:

  clean          Remove all local system and subscription data without affecting the server
  config         List, set, or remove the configuration parameters in use by this system
  environments   Display the environments available for a user
  facts          View or update the detected system information
  identity       Display the identity certificate for this system or request a new one
  import         Import certificates which were provided outside of the tool
  orgs           Display the organizations against which a user can register a system
  plugins        View and configure subscription-manager plugins
  redeem         Attempt to redeem a subscription for a preconfigured system
  repos          List the repositories which this system is entitled to use
  service-level  Manage service levels for this system
  subscribe      Deprecated, see attach
  unsubscribe    Deprecated, see remove
  version        Print version information

Tab Completion:

# subscription-manager 
attach         config         facts          import         orgs           redeem         register       remove         service-level  unregister     
clean          environments   identity       list           plugins        refresh        release        repos          subscribe      unsubscribe 

> version not displayed in tab completion


Scenario 2: Command: rct

# rct 
cat-cert  cat-manifest   dump-manifest  stat-cert

> Apart from cat-cert the other modules have only -h or --help options these dont get auto completed on tab.
> cat-cert tab completes only after typing '--' (double dash)

Unlike the subscription-manager tab completion does not list all the options. (subscription-manager register exaple shown below)

 subscription-manager register -
--activationkey  --consumerid     --force          --help           --org            --proxy          --proxyuser      --servicelevel   --username       
--autosubscribe  --environment    -h               --name           --password       --proxypassword  --release        --type

the '-' (single dash) is also auto completed on hitting tab.


Scenario 3: Command: rhn-magrate-classic-to-rhsm

> options not tab completed


Scenario 4: Command: rhsmcertd

> options not tab completed


Scenario 4: Command: rhsm-icon

> options not tab completed


Actual Results:   See 'Steps to reproduce'

Expected results: See 'Steps to reproduce'

# rpm -qa | egrep "subscription-manager|python-rhsm"

Command: subscription-manager

>>       "status" does not auto complete (works for all other commands and options)

Command: rhn-migrate-classic-to-rhsm

>>       Command "options" do not auto complete

Command: rhsmcertd

>>       Command "options" do not auto complete

Command: rhsm-icon

>>       Command "options" do not auto complete

Comment 5 Sharath Dwaral 2013-06-05 15:11:25 EDT
My mistake

Commands "rhsmcertd", "rhsm-icon", "rhn-migrate-classic-to-rhsm" tab completes "options" only after "-" is entered.

the behavior of this is different from that of "subscription-manager" and "rct" where the options are tab completed without entering a "-"

Would prefer the behavior of tab-completion to be the same for all commands

Leaving it in NEW

Comment 7 Sharath Dwaral 2013-07-16 16:03:32 EDT

# rpm -qa | egrep "subscription-manager|python-rhsm"

Command : subscription-manager

subscription-manager tab completion does not show "status" option

Command : rhsm-icon

rhsm-icon tab completion does not show GTK+ options

    921222: add 'status' to bash completion
Comment 10 Bryan Kearney 2013-08-01 11:55:29 EDT
Moving these to ON_QA. The tooling must have missed moving these.
Comment 11 Sharath Dwaral 2013-08-05 15:23:52 EDT

# rpm -qa | egrep "subscription-manager|python-rhsm"

The below is the result of tab completion of the command.
It can be seen that its provides an option "i--auto" which is not a part of the help menu.

# subscription-manager subscribe 
-h               --help           i--auto          --pool           --proxy          --proxypassword  --proxyuser      --quantity       --servicelevel  

Additional information:

# subscription-manager subscribe --help
Usage: subscription-manager subscribe [OPTIONS]

Deprecated, see attach

  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  --proxy=PROXY_URL     proxy URL in the form of proxy_hostname:proxy_port
                        user for HTTP proxy with basic authentication
                        password for HTTP proxy with basic authentication
  --pool=POOL           the ID of the pool to attach (can be specified more
                        than once)
  --quantity=QUANTITY   number of subscriptions to attach
  --auto                automatically attach compatible subscriptions to this
                        service level to apply to this system
