Cloned from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1442397

There are two issues here:

- The documentation is incorrect for the compare endpoint, /katello/api/compare does not exist

- There is only a compare endpoint for errata (katello/api/v2/errata/compare), I believe there should be one for packages. The errata endpoint is not listed in the documentation

i.e. here is a working command
curl -X GET -k -u admin:changeme -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"content_view_version_ids": [1,3]}' https://&lt;mybox&gt;.com/katello/api/v2/errata/compare

Description of problem:

As per API doc <server_url>/apidoc/v2/packages.html
Issuing a HTTP GET request to <server_url>/katello/api/compare should list all the packages similar to <server_url>/katello/api/packages but it seems a bug.

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open katello WebUI and Login,

2. Open https://&lt;server_url&gt;/katello/api/packages

It will list packages

3. Open https://&lt;server_url&gt;/katello/api/compare

It will not list packages but as per documentation - https://&lt;server_url&gt;/apidoc/v2/packages.html it should list.

Actual results:

API to get a comparison of packages doesn't work

Expected results:

It should list packages and also work with parameters available with this API call.
