Compatibility katello-host-tools/subscription-manager version to Foreman/Katello version


I’m just wondering if there is a support matrix of some sort to indicate which katello-host-tools and subscription-manager versions are supported / known to work with wich Foreman/Katello versions.

As we are currently still on Foreman 1.24 and want to use EL8, there is no dedicated foreman clients repo for that combination - so I would need to use either the latest repo or a specific version (e.g. 2.0 or 2.1) which does not exactly match our current Foreman version.

Looking at the version numbers, this should not be a problem (katello-host-tools-3.5.4-1.el8.noarch.rpm vs. katello-host-tools-3.5.1-2.el7.noarch.rpm), but is there any official information on that?


@laugmanuel thank you for asking about this.

I will find out ASAP.


@laugmanuel any version of subscription-manager should be compatible.
