+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #983197 +++
Description of problem: When customers need a new satellite certificate they must go to the customer portal and create one or call into GSS and have one created for them.
It would be nice if they could do this from their own satellite with out having to log into the portal or call into support.
EX: Satellite administrator while logged into his satellite console has the ability to generate new satellite certificates when the existing one is set to expire or he adds new subscriptions.
For Satellite 6 we should look into:
* Refreshing subscription manifests directly from the Customer Portal
* Eliminating the need for manifest zips entirely and allow the Satellite/SAM server to generate and allocate subscriptions entirely from within the Satellite UI.
With Satellite 6 you can currently refresh your manifest from the customer portal automatically from the UI and CLI. Once imported if new subscriptions are added or renewed at the Customer Portal all the user has todo is use the UI to 'refresh' the manifest which will grab the latest subscription data without requiring the user to login to Red Hat's customer portal.
Moving to MODIFIED for 6.0.3 so we can test it there.
Moving this to be tested during MDP3, not critical for MDP2 success story
verified in Satellite-6.0.3-RHEL-6-20140423.1. Also note that, given certain circumstances (i.e., an old manifest or something), a user is appropriately told that the selected manifest cannot be refreshed.
This was delivered with 6.0.3, which is the Satellite 6 Beta.
