Description Shannon Hughes 2013-06-12 16:31:40 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #973363 +++

Description of problem:

api calls to the channel.software.syncRepo method require the user to have org admin role where the other channel api calls require channel_admin

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "syncRepo-cron.py", line 8, in <module>
    result = client.channel.software.syncRepo(key,'vmware-tools-rhel5','0 * * * * ?')
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/xmlrpclib.py", line 1199, in __call__
    return self.__send(self.__name, args)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/xmlrpclib.py", line 1489, in __request
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/xmlrpclib.py", line 1253, in request
    return self._parse_response(h.getfile(), sock)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/xmlrpclib.py", line 1392, in _parse_response
    return u.close()
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/xmlrpclib.py", line 838, in close
    raise Fault(**self._stack[0])
xmlrpclib.Fault: <Fault -1: 'redstone.xmlrpc.XmlRpcFault: unhandled internal exception: You do not have permissions to perform this action. You need to have atleast a Organization Administrator role to perform this action'>

On close inspection we are sending over an async call to taskomatic api where we check specifically for org admin role. 

was going to create a patch to allo repo syncs to allow channel admin role
