Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
.Ability to enable and disable the `libdnf` plugins Previously, subscription checking was hardcoded into the RHEL version of the `libdnf` plug-ins. With this update, the `microdnf` utility can enable and disable the `libdnf` plug-ins, and subscription checking can now be disabled the same way as in DNF. To disable subscription checking, use the `--disableplugin=subscription-manager` command. To disable all plug-ins, use the `--noplugins` command.

Comment 2 Jaroslav Rohel 2019-12-17 14:30:12 UTC
I prepared support for "--disableplugin=", "--enableplugin=", and "--noplugins" arguments into microdnf.
PR https://github.com/rpm-software-management/microdnf/pull/63

It also needs support in libdnf:
PR https://github.com/rpm-software-management/libdnf/pull/861

With the patches "subscription checking" can be disabled by "--disableplugin=subscription-manager" or "--noplugins".

Comment 3 Jaroslav Rohel 2020-01-09 08:51:56 UTC
PR were merged with upstream.

With the patches microdnf works similar as DNF.
The "subscription checking" can be disabled by command line argument "--disableplugin=subscription-manager".
Loading of all plugins can be disabled by command line argument "--noplugins" or in the configuration file (by default /etc/dnf/dnf.conf) by setting option "plugins=0".
