In satellite 6.2, host collection is not available as a matcher or fact/YAML defination for all hosts.

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Presently there are only four matcher values for overriding smart class parameters in Satellite 6 which are fqdn, hostgroup, os and domain. It would be very beneficial to be able to use host collections as a matcher value as this is the primary grouping method in Satellite.
  • No matcher is available based on host collection.
  • No facts/YAML definition related to Host collection is available in any hosts. Once fact is available it can be used to create a matcher.
