Features

Modularity Support

Katello 3.9 adds support for operations module streams which include. Syncing module stream information from module streams. Associating module streams to content view environments. Enable/Disable/Install module stream on hosts, including bulk actions and host group actions.

System Purpose Support

For Red Hat Customers we’ve introduced a new feature called System Purpose to improve the subscription auto-attach functionality. This adds several new attributes that can be set on Content Hosts in addition to Service Level which is now under the System Purpose umbrella. The new attributes are: Role, Usage, and Add Ons. The values for these will come from your Red Hat subscription manifest and can be set on content hosts from the UI or from the new ‘syspurpose’ command-line interface. Settings these attributes is also possible through the provisioning UI. System Purpose ensures that the best possible subscriptions are attached to your hosts if you are using auto-attach.
