Issue

  • Red Hat uses the Subscription Model to allow customers to download Red Hat tested and certified Enterprise Software. This way customers are supplied with the latest patches, bug fixes, updates and upgrades.
  • One can leverage a Red Hat Subscription also when building container images, which is named here during the blog as an Entitled Build. A customer wants all the advantages of a Red Hat Subscription also available in RHEL based containers be it RHEL7/8 or UBI7/8 based.
  • UBI is a subset of packages of a RHEL distribution, to have all needed packages to build a sophisticated container image, the build needs access to all repositories and this is where entitled builds can help.
  • Beware that entitled builds, which are using software beyond the UBI base set, are not publicly redistributable.
