Katello 3.13 Documentation

Source RPMs

Listing source RPMs with Hammer CLI

  • SRPM info can be retrieved in a few ways: hammer srpm list and hammer srpm info.

  • The hammer srpm list command lists source RPMS by default across the entire Katello server. This can be filtered down by organization, product, repository, content-view and lifecycle environment.

  • The hammer srpm info command gathers information about a source RPM. Returning ID, Name, Version, Architecture, Epoch, Release, Filename, and Description.

Uploading SRPMs with Hammer CLI

Create a product and repository

First we want to create a product:

# hammer product create --name Zoo --organization-id 1

Product created.

Next we want to grab our product id for the repository creation step:

# hammer product list --organization-id 1

1  | Zoo  |             | Default Organization | 0            |

Next we will create our repo:

# hammer repository create --product-id 1 --organization-id 1 --content-type yum --name source_rpms --publish-via-http yes

Repository created.

Now we want to grab our repo id for the upload step:

# hammer repository list

1  | source_rpms | Zoo     | yum          |

Upload a source RPM into a repository

Now that we have our repository, we will upload a source RPM using the following command:

hammer repository upload-content --content-type srpm --id 1 --product-id 1 --path /root/garmindev-0.3.4-9.el7.src.rpm

Successfully uploaded file 'garmindev-0.3.4-9.el7.src.rpm'

Retrieving the repository info will show that the SRPM was uploaded. Note the content counts.

# hammer repository info --id 1
