How to prevent registration of systems using Subscription Management or RHN Classic for a Customer Portal user

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • Customer Portal and RHN use the same user database for login. Currently you could remove any admin RHN permission for each user. But he could login to RHN and e.g. register servers.
  • How could I deny any access to RHN but Customer Portal, Knowledge Base and Downloads would be still available?
  • How does one control which users with customer portal accounts can register/entitle systems and attach subscriptions? Most RHEL7 channels are not showing in calls to channel.listSoftwareChannels and are consequently not getting checked for global subscribe flags.
