Some of our legacy build processes require uploading RPMs directly to the file system. The Yum Generate Metadata task is unable to pick up these new RPMs.
Once a Yum Generate Metadata task has completed it produces a rpm list file. After this any RPMs added directly to the filesystem will not get picked up as the Generate Metadata task will reuse the existing rpm list file.
I can work around this by manually updating the xml config to add the property 'forceFullScan' with a value of 'True'
This will force a Full Scan and will not reuse the old rpm list file.
It would be useful to have this option available in the Yum Generate Metadata configuration screen.
