About

Katello is a systems life cycle management plugin to Foreman. Katello allows you to manage thousands of machines with one click. Katello can pull content from remote repositories into isolated environments, and make subscriptions management a breeze.

Currently, it is able to handle Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux based systems.

Development

The recommended way to set up Katello for development to use the katello-devel-installer directly or via katello-deploy.

Test Run

At this point, the development environment should be completely setup and the Katello engine functionality available. To verify this, go to your Foreman checkout:

  1. Start the development server

    cd $GITDIR/foreman
    
    rails s
  2. Access Foreman in your browser (e.g. http://<hostname>:3000/)

  3. Login to Foreman (default: admin and changeme)
  4. Create an initial Foreman organization
  5. Navigate to the Katello engine (e.g. http://<hostname>:3000/katello)

Reset Development Environment

In order to reset the development environment, all backend data and the database needs to be reset. To reiterate, the following will destroy all data in Pulp, Candlepin and your Foreman/Katello database. From the Foreman checkout run:

rake katello:reset
