So, my hope was SUMA 3.1 is the solution.
https://wiki.microfocus.com/index.ph.../imagebuilding has an initial description of the container image building feature of SUSE Manager 3.1.
A more elaborate chapter in the best practices manual will follow.

Well, building a container with Docker and a Dockerfile was the obvious initial choice for us.
There are other means (like Salt - dockerng) and we'll see what gains sufficient popularity to be supported in SUSE Manager.

Yes, based on the feedback from customers, sales, and consulting, managing Dockerfiles with git is the most popular choice.

Setting up a git server is simple, Google provides many examples

The activation key determines the channels visible to the client. Building containers is all about having the 'right' packages in the container. This is ensured via the activation key.

Leave this field empty for your initial tests.
