Chapter 3. Setting the simple content access mode from the Hybrid Cloud Console

When you create a new manifest, simple content access is enabled by default. Simple content access gives you the ability to consume content on your systems without strict entitlement enforcement. However, if you have an environment where simple content access is not appropriate for all manifests, the Subscriptions administrator can change the simple content access mode for each manifest, as needed.

For Red Hat Satellite version 6.5 and later, you can set the simple content access mode for a particular manifest directly from the Manifests page on the Hybrid Cloud Console. You can check whether simple content access is enabled for a manifest from the setting that is displayed in the Simple Content Access column in the Manifests table. For Red Hat Satellite versions older than 6.5, the Simple Content Access column displays N/A because simple content access is not available for those versions of Satellite.

Prerequisites

  • You are logged in to the Red Hat Hybrid Cloud Console.
  • You are connected to a Red Hat Satellite Server.
  • You have Red Hat Satellite 6 or later.
  • You have the Subscriptions administrator role in the role-based access control (RBAC) system for the Red Hat Hybrid Cloud Console.

Procedure

To set the simple content access mode to Enabled or Disabled, complete the following steps:

  1. From the Hybrid Cloud Console home page, click Services > System Configuration > Manifests.
  2. From the Manifests page, locate the name of the manifest that you want to modify in the Manifests table.
  3. In the Simple Content Access column, set the simple content access switch to Enabled or Disabled, depending on the mode that you want to use for that manifest.
Note

The ability to set the simple content access mode for manifests is only available in Satellite versions 6.5 and later.

Note

In Satellite 6.13, the simple content access status is set on the Satellite organization, not on the manifest. Importing a manifest does not change your organization’s simple content access status.
