Eyeglass Automatic Updates for Recommended Packages

Eyeglass automatic recommended Suse updates are applied weekly only if the appliance has a Internet connection.   Manual RPM updates are required for OS updates for customers without Internet access.  The RPM’s will need to be retrieved by customers from Internet hosted Repositories.  

Changing repository URL on the appliance is possible for a customer that rehost OS patches internally.  Use Zypper AR  URL  “name of repo” to add a repo or, consult openSuse documentation.
