Disable dedicated update sites after installation [message #1745937] Wed, 19 October 2016 15:58 Go to next message

I'm trying to craft an offline installer package / product catalog which only uses local update sites to install stuff.

We want that at the "Preferences -> Install/Update -> Available Sites" only those (offline) update sites are enabled which we have used to create the installation, and nothing more.

However, by default we also get the "Neon" and "The Eclipse Project Updates" update sites enabled (,, see the attached picture. I guess those are coming from the 4.6 SDK we use as the base for the installation.


We don't want to allow users easily mess up our installation by updating platform or something else we pre-installed via "check for updates", which by default uses all enabled update sites.

I see that the preferences recorder can't catch this settings, probably because it is something p2 special. So how can we disable unwanted enabled update sites (or remove them entirely)?

P2 stores these things as preferences but in profile scope. You could install the preference's feature:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

And then use Window -> Preferences -> Oomph -> All Preferences -> Edit... to open the editor and inspect what's going on with the "profile" node where all this stuff is stored. Perhaps with some work on the preference tasks so they can be easily applied to the profile preferences the problem could be solved.
