4.3. Refreshing subscription data

Subscription Manager's refresh command pulls the latest subscription data from the server. Starting in RHEL-7.9 and RHEL-8.3, Red Hat has updated this command to accept a --force option that will force the entitlement server to generate completely new entitlement certificates and install them on the local system. The original behavior prior to RHEL-7.9 and RHEL-8.3 also generated new entitlement certificates. However going forward, the refresh command (without --force) will only copy existing entitlements from the server onto the local system to avoid unnecessary certificate regeneration.
To pull this data from the server, enter the refresh command:
        # subscription-manager refresh
        All local data refreshed
