h2. Goals
5 1 Justin Sherrill

h3. Main Goal
7 6 Justin Sherrill
8 1 Justin Sherrill
* Unify "Content Hosts" and Hosts so that they are one object based on a 'Host'.  The content and subscription portions simply become attributes/concerns/aspects of a Host object.

h3. Secondary Goals
11 1 Justin Sherrill
12 6 Justin Sherrill
* Create a supported API for katello content and subscription aspects of a host
13 6 Justin Sherrill
* Plan and implement a generic way for Host objects to be split up and be plugable.  The host would have different aspects such as Puppet, Provisioning, & Content, any of which is optional.

h4. Ideal Design
22 2 Justin Sherrill
We have presented two designs, one design based somewhat on this discussion:

The goal is to open a pull request with this design implemented for the Puppet related portion and if feedback is positive to proceed with the Content and Subscription portions.

h4. Fallback design:
31 2 Justin Sherrill
32 2 Justin Sherrill
If this does not go favourably, we present this alternative design which is very similar but simpler in nature:

h2. Api/Cli changes
38 3 Justin Sherrill
39 3 Justin Sherrill
At a minimum, no api/cli changes would be needed and all functionality could remain with the proposed designs using existing controllers and cli commands.  However given that the current katello systems controller is 'deprecated', we greatly need to plan for a supported api.  Based on the discussions here: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/foreman-dev/4Y4qxyknMwI

h3. Unified Api Design
44 1 Justin Sherrill
45 7 Justin Sherrill
From a user perspective all aspects would appear as a single resource and would all be contained within that resource.  include[] could be passed on index and show to include the various aspects:
46 1 Justin Sherrill

<pre>
48 7 Justin Sherrill
   GET /api/v2/hosts?search="content_attr=foo"&include[]=content
49 7 Justin Sherrill
   GET /api/v2/hosts/:id?include[]=content
50 7 Justin Sherrill
   GET /api/v2/hosts/:id?include[]=subscriptions
51 7 Justin Sherrill
   PUT /api/v2/hosts/:id/packages/install
52 7 Justin Sherrill
</pre>
53 1 Justin Sherrill
