Projects release allows you to share projects with specific users or teams within the factory. This release will contain all the project applications, all architectures, and for the moment, only one distribution per release.
To release a project you need at least one built application. In order to make the release follow these steps:
- Go on “Projects” tab
- Click on the project you want to release
- Go on under “ACTIONS” tab
- Expand “Release project” (at the bottom)
- Choose a distribution and a release version (e.g. 1.0)
- Click on the “RELEASE PROJECT” button
Once the project is released you need to choose the audience (the users or teams you will share it with). You can also choose
Release to all people using this factory.
- Go on “Projects” tab
- Click on RELEASED PROJECTS
- Choose the released project you want to share
- Go to the “AUDIENCE” tabs
- Select one or multiples users/teams at the left
- Click the » (move-to-the-right) button to select them
- Click on “UPDATE AUDIENCE”
Finally, in order to use the released project outside the WebUI you need the token that was created during the release. The
Repository URL and
Repository access token are found in the release Overview (Projects > RELEASED PROJECTS > selected project). With them you will be able to use the download server that turns within the factory.
It is also possible to release a project from redpesk command line, alias
In order to do that you have to specify the slug of the project you want to release, the distribution targeted by the release, and the release version.
Additionally, you can specify a name for the “released project” that will be created.
The other flags are here if you want to set-up a specific audience for the released project:
- One or several user(s): flag
- One or several team(s): flag
- All users of the factory: flag
In order to get the slug of your project, you can use the
rp-cli projects list as below.
$ rp-cli projects list
ID Slug Name Version Type
73027643-f827-40c4-ad13-86748c0b99b6 iot-project IOT Project [Not set] standard

74c88f7a-3f5a-4072-bb29-2291fa8bc05a redpesk-industrial-image Redpesk Industrial Image [Not set] standard
In order to save time do not forget that
rp-cli has a completion system, for example once you wrote the
--distribution flag you can press TAB and
rp-cli will give you the available distributions! It is the same for users or teams.
Then, run the following command (adapt the distribution, the version and eventually the audience flags to your needs):
$ rp-cli projects release redpesk-banano-ci-0 -d "Release 1.0 of the industrial project" --distribution redpesk-lts-arz-1.1-update -v 1.0
-- Project release requested by user --
Checking distribution validity... [OK]
Requesting the factory to release the project "redpesk-industrial"...[OK]
Waiting for the project "redpesk-industrial" to be released...[OK]
After that, you will be able to get the list of released projects using:
$ rp-cli projects releases list

Enable GPG signature checking on board
Redpesk supports a basic GPG signature model. Every package in a released project is signed with the same GPG key by the factory it was released in. When enabled, the update tools (dnf) will verify the authenticity of the packages by verifying those GPG signatures and refuse to install any package that is not signed or has an incorrect signature.
The configuration file for dnf is located in
/etc/yum.repos.d/redpesk-update.repo. To enable the signature checking on board,
we need to set the gpgcheck option to 1 in the
[redpesk-middleware] sections of the configuration file
gpgkey option specifies the location of the GPG key.
To do so, we can use the following command
dnf config-manager --setopt=<repoid>.gpgcheck=1 --save as shown below :
dnf config-manager --setopt=redpesk-update.gpgcheck=1 --save
dnf config-manager --setopt=redpesk-middleware-update.gpgcheck=1 --save
