Refetch a Repository

Table of Contents

Table of Contents


Refetching performs a scrape to see if any changes have been made to the source repository. If you have recently made changes to cookbooks in a git or subversion repository that you added to RightScale, you can use this option to update your repositories. You can either perform a Refetch to update the information or you can perform a Refetch and Import which will refetch your repository information and import your repository cookbooks into RightScale.


  1. Go to Design > Repositories.
  2. Select the repository or repositories you would like to refetch.
  3. Select the Actions drop-down and click Refetch.




  1. This will scrape your repositories for updated information. It may take a minute or two to complete. You can click on a repository, select the Info tab, and see the Last fetch output section to see if errors occurred during the fetch.
  2. You can refresh the page or select the refresh icon next to Add Repository to update the page.
  3. Once feteched, you can Import a Cookbook from a Repository. This allows you to perform advanced options, such as importing your own cookbooks as alternate namespaces instead of primary namespaces. For more information about namespaces, see Primary and Alternate Namespace
