There is currently a bug (see BZ 1259188, should be fixed with Satellite 6.1.6) with ‘Hosts’ and ‘Content Hosts’ mappings which should be done manually. How this works is described in this Red Hat KB article. The bug leads to the problem that even if the upload of SCAP scan results from your client to Satellite 6 / Capsule was successfully performed no reports are visible in Satellite 6 web-ui for your host.
