Enable feature to update all packages for a host collection to patch all hosts at once
Cloned from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1247946
Description of problem:
How to patch all hosts through Satellite 6 in host collection.
We can patch individual packages for a host collection, but there is no way to update all packages for a host collection. Also, there should be a way to check (logs of) what was updated when.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. on satellite 6 web UI : Go to Hosts -> Host collection
2. On the host collection created -> Collection Actions
3. Package Installation, removal and Update -> we need to search for particular package or group and perform the action
4. There is no way to patch hosts with all updates available
No way to patch all hosts at once for multiple packages.
The similar facility is available in satellite 5.x using SSM.
All hosts in a host collection should be able to be updated for multiple updates.
There is existing bugzilla for adding feature for tracking tasks for host collection. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1192889
This adds a way to update all packages on a
content host in two places
Hosts > Content Hosts > (select content host name) >
select all checkboxes, a message should appear asking
if you want to select all the checkboxes,
click that and click "update all"
Hosts > Content Hosts >
(select content host checkboxes) > Bulk Actions >
click update all packages button
