Chapter 4. Deleting a subscription manifest for connected Satellite servers

You can remove unused manifests for maintenance purposes. However, deleting an active manifest on a connected Satellite Server is intended for debugging purposes only. Before deleting an active manifest, it is important to note the consequences:

  • All subscriptions attached to running hosts will be deleted.
  • All subscriptions attached to activation keys will be deleted.
  • You will be required to create, export, download, and import a new manifest into your connected Satellite Server and reattach the subscriptions to hosts and activation keys.
  • Red Hat Insights will be disabled due to a lost connection to Red Hat Satellite.


  • Red Hat Satellite 6 or later
  • The Subscriptions administrator role in the role-based access control (RBAC) system for the Red Hat Hybrid Cloud Console


The following procedure guides you through the steps to delete an unused manifest.

  1. Log in to your Red Hat Hybrid Cloud Console account at
  2. From the Business Insights menu, click Subscriptions > Manifests.
  3. From the Manifests page, click the name of the manifest that you want to delete.


    Deleting a manifest will delete all subscriptions attached to running hosts and activation keys and disable Red Hat Insights. This operation is permanent and cannot be undone.

  4. From the Details panel, click Delete manifest.

    1. If you are sure that you want to delete the selected manifest, select the confirmation check box and then click YES, DELETE.
