Adding Vendor Software Sources

Select Oracle Linux software sources in OS Management Hub to make them available to instances in the region. Adding software sources to the service adds them to the root compartment.

Vendor software sources are:

  • Used as the basis to create custom software sources
  • Selected for group, lifecycle environment, and software source profiles
  • Attached to instances registered with the service

To add restricted software sources, you must first add your entitlement credentials.


Need the vendor software source in a non-root compartment? After adding the source to the service, replicate it to another compartment.

    1. Open the navigation menu and click Observability & Management. Under OS Management Hub, click Software sources.
    2. Under List scope, select the root compartment.
    3. From the Actions menu, click Add vendor software source.
    4. Select the vendor software sources to add:
      • OS vendor: Select the OS vendor. For example, Oracle.

      • OS version: Select the OS version. For example, Oracle Linux 8.

      • Architecture: Select the system architecture. For example, x86_64.

      • Available software sources: Select the software sources to add.

    5. Click Add.
  • Use the oci os-management-hub software-source change-availability command and required parameters to change the availability of software sources in a region. An Available software source is accessible but not yet added to the service. A Selected software source has been added to the service and can be used by instances.

    Setting the availability to Selected adds the software source for use by instances in the region.
