1.4. Red Hat Satellite 6 Supported Usage
Red Hat Satellite 6 includes supported puppet packages. The installation program allows users to install and configure Puppet Masters as a part of Red Hat Satellite Capsule Servers. The server installs hiera, which can be used to refine how puppet modules are applied. A puppet module, running on a puppet master on the Red Hat Satellite Server or Satellite Capsule Server, using hiera, is supported by Red Hat.
Pulp is the content management subsystem within Red Hat Satellite 6. Pulp usage is only supported via the Satellite Server WebUI, CLI and API. Direct modification or interaction with Pulp's local API or database is not within Red Hat's scope of support.
Foreman is an upstream component that makes up a large amount of Red Hat Satellite's core functionality including the WebUI container, users, organizations, security and other significant functions. Foreman can be extended using plug-ins. However, only Red Hat Satellite packaged plug-ins are supported. Red Hat does not support plug-ins in the Red Hat Satellite Optional channel.
Katello is the upstream component for Red Hat Satellite 6's Content and Subscription user interface and API. The only supported method of using Katello is through the Red Hat Satellite 6 WebUI, API and database. Red Hat does not support direct interactions and modifications to Katello.
