Remediation plans within Satellite!
One of the most exciting capabilities in Satellite 6.3 is greater integration with Red Hat Insights. Although there are tons of other great features, this one is so important I thought it worth a blog post.
Using Red Hat Insights from the Satellite UI is now no different than using it in the Customer Portal. The coolest added feature brings the full functionality of Insights Planner to Satellite (planner itself was added in 6.2). You can now create remediation plans and generate Ansible Playbooks from within Satellite! From there, you can also review and download the playbooks to simply apply them when you’re ready.

Easily create remediation plans from Satellite 6.3
Go to Red Hat Insights -> Planner in your Satellite 6.3 and you'll see the same Insights Planner as is in the Customer Portal.
Click "Create a Plan" in the upper-right corner.
In the Plan/Playbook Builder, add a name for your plan or playbook. Select the system, systems, or group you want your plan to apply to and the actions you want the plan to solve.
Insights may give you different resolution options, based on factors such as the risk of change or down time to the system. Choose the one that best fits your requirements.
Once that's done, your plan will pop up so you can review it. It's shown in a very visual way, so you can, at a glance, see the issues affecting the different systems and the total risk that issue represents.
Next, download the automatically generated playbook.
Once you've downloaded it, you can run it using Ansible from the command line as follows:
[root@tower ]# ansible-playbook payload-ssh-dnsmasq.yml
