Great, glad to hear things are working.

Currently the manifest URL has to be changed for this, since there can
only be one manifest URL set per organization.
You could use the --source-url option on the RH repo when syncing, but
this just substitutes one type of URL replacement for another.

As a workaround, you may be able to symlink from
/var/lib/pulp/katello-export to /var/lib/pulp/published/<path to rpm
publish location> and sync from there. We have a backlog task to handle
the connected sync scenario more gracefully, without having multiple
copies of RPMs on disk.

It sounds like the feature you want is to be able to select multiple

yes, that’s right, but i have question,
“Software collection”, “custom repository”, now after I export contents
this CV, how can I sync individual repositories on “Downstream”
?? or I need to create one custom repository and sync everything there
if yes, then I will not need to enable repositories in RedHat
subscriptions, will kickstart and all work ??
How can I manage above scenario?
I set up an example with Product A and B with a CV named “CV1” and repos
"zoo" and “zoo2”. I also synced RHEL 7.2 kickstart.
After exporting version #2 of CV1, it created a dir structure like this:
If I wanted to import these on the downstream sat, the easiest way would
be to create two custom repos for zoo and zoo2, and enable kickstart by
setting my cdn url to http://upstream/<exported
At that point, I should be able to enable the 7.2 kickstart repo.
I could also just create a third custom repo with the 7.2 kickstart
content instead of using the CDN url functionality, either should work ok.
Just confirming, your production Katello instance is able to connect to
the engineering instance via http or https, it just can’t connect to
internet. Is this correct?
our requirement is to sync tested contents from “upstream” to downstream
satellite, and it can be http/https
The sync should work, similar to how RedHat repositories sync work when
give URL like https://cnd.redhat.com/ and it takes care of where the
contents are. So you only update “Downstream” satellite’s URL to
https://upstream.satellite.com, and just enable repositories and sync
contents. ( from exported repositories or CVs
