A puppet module to manage Redhat subscriptions using the subscription-manager

Module Description

This module provides the rh_subscription type that can be used to add and remove subscriptions



Manage yum repos via the subscription manager


Enable or disable RH subscriptions based on their pool ID


Manage rh_subscription resources using a hash to map human readable names to pool ID's


Use Puppet to add a repo using subscription manager

rh_repo { 'rhel-7-server-extras-rpms':
 ensure => present,

Use Puppet to add or remove a subscription based on it's pool ID

rh_subscription { '8e8e7f7a77554a776277ac6dca654':
  ensure => present,


The rhsm class also provides a helper using create_resources() to configure any subscriptions or repos in hiera

  8e8e7f7a77554a776277ac6dca654: {}
  8e8e7f7a77554a776277e63d13ca4: {}

  rhel-7-server-optional-rpms: {}

Puppet will automatically configure these subscriptions when the rhsm class is declared.

class { '::rhsm': }

The module also provides a way to store pool IDs with corresponding readable names and refer to those in your manifests

  rhel_extras:  8e8e7f7a77554a776277ac6dca654
  oracle_stuff: 8e8e7f7a77554a776277e63d13ca4

You can then declare these subscriptions from hiera....

  rhel_extras: {}
  oracle_stuff: {}

Or use the rhsm::named_subscription defined resource type directly

class { '::rhsm': }

rhsm::named_subscription { 'oracle_stuff':
  ensure => present,
