In this post I will review the process of creating Content Views (CV), Composite Content Views (CCV), publishing each view, and creating lifecycles.
Note that in this post we are working with Red Hat Satellite 6.4, in which there was a major overhaul of the WebUI. You may have noticed that all menus are now situated on in a pane on the left, rather than at the top of each page.
A sync plan is a constant, scheduled synchronization of updates of a Red Hat Satellite repository and the source repositories. I suggest syncing either daily or weekly in order to minimize the deltas between each sync. When you sync more often, the amount of change between syncs is less and therefore should complete faster than a monthly sync.
Note that this step assumes that you have already setup the correct repositories for RHEL and Red Hat OpenStack. A list of required repositories can be found in the Red Hat OpenStack Director Installation and Usage Guide.
Navigate to Content > Sync Plans
Here we create a daily sync plan for RHEL 7.
We now add RHEL 7 as the product.
Now we need to create a daily sync plan for Red Hat OpenStack.
Note: you might need to create a sync plan for Ceph as well. Ensure all plans sync at the same interval.
Create a Content View
Now we need to create our content views. We will create one for RHEL, and one for OSP. If you are using ceph, you will need to create a content view for it as well.
