Description

It would be nice to integrate Foreman and Cockpit so that there is a "Web Console" button on the page for a host (next to "Schedule Remote Job") and clicking that button will "seamlessly" open a Cockpit session for the host.

"Seamlessly" means:

- No additional login into Cockpit should be required if the Foreman session can execute remote jobs on the host
- The browser should not need to have direct access to the host, even if remote execution must go through a Smart Proxy
- No additional TLS certificates should need to be accepted and not additional network ports should need to be opened anywhere

REX part: https://projects.theforeman.org/issues/25534

The plan for Foreman itself is that

- Foreman sets up a specially configured Cockpit instance that uses a new session starter
- Foreman responds to a new URL path to do the redirection that Cockpit uses to get a session token
- Foreman gets a new button that links to this Cockpit instance
- the Cockpit instance is put behind Apache in a production setup
