I need to create a yum repository but I have 5 gpgkeys, the idea is to configure the repo and each package install its own gpgkey automatically. In other words, I need to configure multiple gpgkeys for a repo. How can I do that?

gpgkey= *** Can I write a url here for each package install its key? ***
  • It might help if you could add some explanation or context information on the reasoning why you need to use multiple gpg keys for one repo. – doktor5000 Jul 13 '15 at 22:24

Only practical example seems to be mentioned in
a puppet bugreport - "yumrepo type does not support multiple gpgkey entries"
which says that you need to use multi-line URLs instead of multiple gpgkey= entries.

Hence it should look like this


and not like this


This is also how it's described in the yum.conf man page

gpgkey A URL pointing to the ASCII-armored GPG key file for the repository. This option is used if yum needs a public key to verify a package and the required key hasn't been imported into the RPM database. If this option is set, yum will automatically import the key from the specified URL. You will be prompted before the key is installed unless the assumeyes option is set.

Multiple URLs may be specified here in the same manner as the baseurl option (above). If a GPG key is required to install a package from a repository, all keys specified for that repository will be installed.
