I have attempted to enable access to the RHSCL and/or DTS repositories but was unable to successfully do so, how do I request access to the correct channels?

To request access to these channels, log into Red Hat Network and initiate a request at: https://www.redhat.com/wapps/try/RHSCL.

When using RHSM, RHSCL/DTS may appear as a separate entitlement

If you believe you should have access to RHSCL and/or DTS and you're using Red Hat Subscription Management for registration management, please check to see if you have the "Software Collections and Developer Toolset" add on entitlement. You can check this by opening the details page for the appropriate server, and selecting "Attach a Subscription". Check the resulting list to see if this entitlement exists.

Important notes about this request:

  • Access to Red Hat Software Collections and/or Red Hat Developer Toolset can only be requested by the account Organization Administrator, or "Org Admin." This includes your initial Customer Portal user and any users your organization has created with that same role. If you are not an Org Admin, please forward your request to an Org Admin for processing. If you do not know who your Org Admin is, open a request with Red Hat Customer Service (https://access.redhat.com/customerservice) and supply your Red Hat Network user name and account number. Once a request is submitted, the Red Hat Software Collections and/or Red Hat Developer Toolset channel(s) can be added to all valid and current RHEL entitlements for your account.

  • When RHSCL and/or DTS is activated, it is associated with an active entitlement. If that entitlement expires or is renewed, you may need to open a new request for access. See this solution for more information.

If you are using a Red Hat Satellite, see the section below about how to enable access through Satellite.
