Chapter 6. Attaching your Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform subscription

download PDF

You must have valid subscriptions attached on all nodes before installing Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform. Attaching your Ansible Automation Platform subscription allows you to access subcription-only resources necessary to proceed with the installation.


Attaching a subscription is unnecessary if you have enabled Simple Content Access Mode on your Red Hat account. Once enabled, you will need to register your systems to either Red Hat Subscription Management (RHSM) or Satellite before installing the Ansible Automation Platform. See Simple Content Access Mode for more information.


  1. Obtain the pool_id for your Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform subscription:

    # subscription-manager list --available --all | grep "Ansible Automation Platform" -B 3 -A 6

    Do not use MCT4022 as a pool_id for your subscription because it can cause Ansible Automation Platform subscription attachment to fail.


    An example output of the subsciption-manager list command. Obtain the pool_id as seen in the Pool ID: section:

    Subscription Name: Red Hat Ansible Automation, Premium (5000 Managed Nodes)
      Provides: Red Hat Ansible Engine
      Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform
      SKU: MCT3695
      Contract: ````
      Pool ID: <pool_id>
      Provides Management: No
      Available: 4999
      Suggested: 1
  2. Attach the subscription:

    # subscription-manager attach --pool=<pool_id>

You have now attached your Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform subscriptions to all nodes.


  • Verify the subscription was successfully attached:
# subscription-manager list --consumed


  • If you are unable to locate certain packages that came bundled with the Ansible Automation Platform installer, or if you are seeing a Repositories disabled by configuration message, try enabling the repository using the command:

    Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform 2.3 for RHEL 8

    subscription-manager repos --enable ansible-automation-platform-2.3-for-rhel-8-x86_64-rpms

    Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform 2.3 for RHEL 9

    subscription-manager repos --enable ansible-automation-platform-2.3-for-rhel-9-x86_64-rpms
