Why Configure Master Repositories
Setting up master repositories is critical to get easy access to new releases and more importantly regular fixes and updates provided by Software AG.
It is strongly recommended to setup a Gateway Command Central server on a host with internet access and use this server for product and fix repository management.
Configure Master Repositories
Using Web UI and CLI
Watch this video for complete process of setting up master and image repositories for products and fixes using Command Central Web UI and Command Line Interface (CLI)
Using Repos Composite Template
Command Central 9.8+ comes with default repos template that can be used to easily configure master repositories.
cc exec templates composite apply repos "empower.username=email" "empower.password=pass"
where empower.username and empower.password are your login credentials to Empower web site. NOTE: the command has to be provided as a single line!
The results of the template execution is a list of product and fix repositories that looks like this:
cc list repository products
Display Name Type webMethods-9.6 MASTER webMethods-9.5 MASTER webMethods-9.8 MASTER webMethods-9.7 MASTER
cc list repository fixes
Display Name Type Empower MASTER
To verify successful access to master repositories use these commands
cc list repository products content webMethods-9.8 products=SPM_9.8

Can I use master repository to install products or fixes on a host that does not have Internet access?
No, even if Command Central host has access to the Internet, but the target host does not, you cannot use master repositories for product or fix installation. You need to setup mirror or image repositories.
Can I use master repository if connection to the Internet is via a proxy server?
Yes, you can, but you need to configure proxy configuration on the target SPM that performs the connection. This can be done via Command Central Web UI.
I cannot list content of master repository
There are several reasons why it may not work.
- You don't have connection to the Internet: Check
- You have proxy but it's not configured on SPM: Configure proxy configuration
- You did not provide Empower credentials or they are not valid. Ensure the credentials are valid
- You Empower credentials do not allow you download software. Use different credentials with sufficient permissions.
- You're listing content for an older release. Use only 9.8+ repository to list content.
