How to enable or disable a host within Katello

Problem: I can enable or disable a host via API. How can a host be enabled or disabled via the GUI? Where within the GUI can a host be enabled or disabled?

Expected outcome:

Foreman and Proxy versions:

Foreman and Proxy plugin versions: |foreman-tasks|The goal of this plugin is to unify the way of showing task statuses across the Foreman instance. It defines Task model for keeping the information about the tasks and Lock for assigning the tasks to resources. The locking allows dealing with preventing multiple colliding tasks to be run on the same resource. It also optionally provides Dynflow infrastructure for using it for managing the tasks.|Ivan NeÄŤas|5.1.1|

|A plugin bringing remote execution to the Foreman, completing the config management functionality with remote management functionality.|Foreman Remote Execution team|4.8.0|
|Katello adds Content and Subscription Management to Foreman. For this it relies on Candlepin and Pulp.|N/A|4.2.2|

Other relevant data:

I asked the question then found the answer. To enable or disable a host within Katello from the GUI, go to Hosts → select host and edit, go to tab “Additional Information” – the parameter is on the second line.
