Registering a repository

Using the dashboard, you can register and connect your existing repositories to endpoints.

Before you begin

Activate the Repository Configuration - Oracle Linux analysis.


  1. From the All Content domain, go to Sites > External Sites > Patching Support > Dashboards > Oracle Linux Custom Repository Management.
  2. Click the Endpoints tab and select an endpoint. The repositories of the selected endpoints are listed in the lower part of the window. When a repository is named as unspecified, it means that it is not listed in the Repository list.
  3. Click Register a new repository.
  4. From the Register a New Repository window, select the repository, then click Next. The next window shows the name and the URL of the repository that you are registering.
  5. This step is optional. You can also add more configuration information in Additional Fields. This information is saved in the YUM configuration files.
    Note: Users who have custom repositories that are not just mirrors of the vendor sites must add gpgcheck=0 in Additional Fields. When the gpg signature files are excluded, the rpm files are not checked for authenticity and might cause the installation to fail.
  6. Click Save.
  7. From the Take Action window, select the computer and click OK to run the action.
