Description John Sefler 2013-07-10 15:56:09 EDT
Description of problem:
One of the attributes of a subscription product is warning_period.  The intent of this attribute is to warn the consumer that the entitlement is about to expire within this number of days before the end date.  Within the subscription-manager-gui, the subscription about to expire will turn yellow on the "My Subscriptions" tab.  Unfortunately the subscription-manager-gui appears to be using a hard-coded warning period of 42 days instaed of using the value from the entitlement.

The hard-coded values are found here...

[root@jsefler-5 ~]# grep WARNING_DAYS /usr/share/rhsm/subscription_manager/gui/*.py
/usr/share/rhsm/subscription_manager/gui/mysubstab.py:WARNING_DAYS = 6 * 7   # 6 weeks * 7 days / week
/usr/share/rhsm/subscription_manager/gui/mysubstab.py:        if date_range.end() - timedelta(days=WARNING_DAYS) < now:
/usr/share/rhsm/subscription_manager/gui/widgets.py:WARNING_DAYS = 6 * 7   # 6 weeks * 7 days / week
/usr/share/rhsm/subscription_manager/gui/widgets.py:        if end - datetime.timedelta(days=WARNING_DAYS) < now:

To see what the warning period should be for each consumed subscription, use the rct cat-cert tool like this...

[root@jsefler-5 ~]# for f in `ls /etc/pki/entitlement/*.pem | grep -v key`; do rct cat-cert --no-content $f | egrep "Name|Warning Period"; done;
	Name: Awesome OS Server Basic (data center)
	Warning Period: 30
	Name: Awesome OS Server Bits
	Name: Awesome OS Server Basic (dc-virt)
	Warning Period: 0

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@jsefler-5 ~]# rpm -q subscription-manager-gui

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


# grep WARNING_DAYS /usr/share/rhsm/subscription_manager/gui/*.py
/usr/share/rhsm/subscription_manager/gui/widgets.py:WARNING_DAYS = 6 * 7   # 6 weeks * 7 days / week

There is still a hard coded value for WARNING_DAYS but it is not referenced anywhere. 

# for f in `ls /etc/pki/entitlement/*.pem | grep -v key`; do rct cat-cert --no-content $f | egrep "Name|Warning Period"; done;
        Name: Awesome OS Server Bits
	Name: Awesome OS Server Basic (multi-entitlement)
	Warning Period: 30
