Administer > Settings > Content :
Use remote execution by default: YES

With the above setting, the default action (install package, update errata) is still trying to use katello-agent, and tasks are failing (as katello-agent is not installed).

Select a content host and navigate to Packages > Installed
Search for packages (e.g. ‘iwl1000’) and click ‘Remove Selected’ after selecting package.
Nothing will happen on the host

Expected outcome:
Expected actions to use Remote Execution over katello-agent

Foreman and Proxy versions:
Foreman 1.22.0
Katello 3.12.3
Foreman_remote_execution 1.8.2

Fixes #27714 - Generate bastion config on load (#8363)

  • Fixes #27714 - Generate bastion config on load

This commit adds a config generator option to bastion so that it reloads
the configurations on every page load. Prior to this commit the plugins
were returning a static list of config items, which means if some one
changed "remote_execution_by_default" setting, the config would not get
regenerated in the UI.
Also updated the content-host installed packages controller to handle
removal by both katello-agent and remote action
Also includes a bunch of unit tests.
