Tuesday, November 16


@nadjaheitmann @rverdile @Ondrej_Prazak @amirfefer @m-bucher @sajha @Dewar

Can you please reply to this thread with some information about your talks? So that people know what they have to look forward to. A few sentences is fine !

Thank you @mcorr
My talk is Foreman SCC Manager Redesign and updates
I will introduce the Foreman (SUSE Customer Center) SCC manager, a plugin that allows to import SUSE products into Katello using a custom SUSE account. We are currently working on a redesign of the product selection page of this plugin. Right now it a very basic selection tree that is not very user friendly. So I will explain the considerations we had when planning the redesign and how we decided to change the page. Finally, I will give a short outlook on other ongoing topics that we plan to tackle in the future (e.g. CI, Katello 4.2 compliance).


My talk is about improvements of OpenSCAP integration with Foreman. The new feature is a support of scanning based on OVAL definitions, so I will be talking about what will be available in an upcoming Foreman release.

How to use Katello’s generic content type framework

Katello’s generic content type framework is used to implement support for a content type by just listing key information in the content type’s registration file. I’ll be going over which information is needed in the registration file, using the Python content type as an example. I’ll show some pieces of the implementation or UI for some content, but mostly I will talk about how to use the registration file. This is aimed at developers who want to use this framework to support a content type.

Thank you @mcorr for hosting it :+1: :+1:
where can I find the recordings?

You can find links in the agenda. This was sitting as a draft because I have one more to add. It failed (I think because I was adding too many at the same time). I will also put together a blog summary!

Perfect, thanks!
