A respository subscription: think of this as a "Pum inbox"
In Cloud Manager, a repository subscription can enable you to have your own dedicated File Server in the Oracle Cloud. This is where your PeopleSoft Pum Images (PIs), standalone patches (PRPs), and PeopleTools patches, will be downloaded.
Who does the downloading?
Not you. Cloud Manager will do this automatically when a new image is released or when a new PRP is made available for your products that you have
created a Subscription Channel for, and then subscribed to that Subscription Channel.

Examples of a Subscription Channel: PeopleTools channel or HCM channel.
Cloud Manager can download previous PeopleTools patch releases for the Tools channel.
For Application channels, only the latest patches are downloaded.
How does that work, exactly
Cloud Manager has a process scheduler recurring job, that invokes download manager for all the subscribed release channels. This runs once per week. It will make sure that latest updates for all the subscribed release channels are downloaded regularly without any user interaction.
The Repository tile is delivered as part of the Cloud Manager home page
How to subscribe
To subscribe to a channel, click the Related Actions button corresponding to channel name.
If you select Subscribe option, Cloud Manager starts monitoring for any new PIs
or PRPs and downloads them from MOS.
How to un-subscribe
If you select the Unsubscribe option, Cloud Manager will no longer monitor/download latest PIs or PRPs. No downloads are performed.
Is there a requirement in order to use Cloud Manager?
