Multiple GPG Keys do not seemed to be supported at the Product or the Repository level. This is supported by yum:

From the yum.conf man page:

baseurl Must be a URL to the directory where the yum repository's 'repodata' directory lives. Can be an http://, ftp:// or file:// URL. You can specify multiple URLs in one baseurl statement. The best way to do this is like this:
name=Some name for this repository


gpgkey A URL pointing to the ASCII-armored GPG key file for the repository. This option is used if yum needs a public key to verify a package and the required key hasn't been imported into the RPM database. If this option is set, yum will automatically import the key from the specified URL. You will be prompted before the key is installed unless the assumeyes option is set.

Multiple URLs may be specified here in the same manner as the baseurl option (above). If a GPG key is required to install a package from a repository, all keys specified for that repository will be installed.


#1 Updated by Chad Pritchett over 3 years ago seems to indicate this is a feature regression in pulp.

  • Triaged changed from No to Yes

As far as I know, Candlepin only supports a single GPG Key URL per content (and Candlepin content is what we map a repository to for controlling access via subscriptions). Thus, we'd need to open a bug, if one does not already exist, to Candlepin. See

This is more relevant now, the puppet pc1 repository currently uses two gpg keys

Any news about this one ?

Gitlab repos are also using multiple keys, but Puppet PC1 is the most blocking one.

The funny point is that RedHat workaround on Satellite 6 use Puppet...
