Description

++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bugzilla Bug #1162347 ++

Description of problem:

Description of problem: When uploading a directory to an iso repo using the -d flag the files inside the directory are flattened into a single folder and folder hierarchy is not preserved.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.4.3

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create iso repo
2. Upload files using -d flag

Actual results: All files are put at the root of the /pulp/isos/repo/ folder

Expected results: Folder structure would be preserved

Can you elaborate on why it would be helpful to preserve the directory hierarchy?

I want to host extracted iso images in pulp (http) for PXE boot. When the iso is extracted it has isolinux/ and images/ folders. When importing that folder into pulp it removes the directories and recursively publishes each file at the root of the repo url. That obviously breaks pxe booting which automatically looks for those folders.

For now, you might be able to use the pulp_rpm yum plugins to manage these files. The importer and distributor will handle all files required for kickstart, including those in isolinux/ and images/.

Otherwise, this will likely be addressed by a new "file plugin" that we intend to implement in the future.
