How do I get packages from my Red Hat subscription into container images built from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Universal Base Image (UBI)?

Solution In Progress - Updated -


  • The Red Hat Universal Base Image (UBI) provided by Red Hat does not offer all available packages within a Red Hat subscription, as it was designed to be used both within and outside of Red Hat environments.
  • When building container images using the Red Hat Universal Base Image (UBI) images as a base image, how do I enable Red Hat Enterprise Linux repositories for packages outside of the default UBI repositories?


  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 8
  • Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform (RHOCP) 3
  • Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform (RHOCP) 4
  • Red Hat Universal Base Images (UBI)
