Description Mike McCune 2011-08-16 17:24:01 UTC
The URL input form for creating a repo does not allow for local directories so you can sync from an NFS mount or a mounted ISO.  Trying to specify:


results in "Invalid URL" errors.

Comment 1 Mike McCune 2011-08-16 17:25:46 UTC
The problem is in the regex in:

module KatelloUrlHelper

Needs to support file based URLs.

Comment 2 Shannon Hughes 2011-08-22 19:01:54 UTC
added in regex to handle file based urls

Comment 3 Sachin Ghai 2011-08-25 11:50:35 UTC
Verified with following katello build:

[root@dhcp201-167 repo]# rpm -qa | grep katello
[root@dhcp201-167 repo]# 

Now we can create file based local repos. I used following url for file based local repo's 


Here is the output from pulp-admin, after creating a repo from webUI
