Retrieve Customer Download Token

MariaDB Corporation provides package repositories for CentOS/RHEL (YUM), Debian/Ubuntu (APT), and SLES (ZYpp). A download token is required to access the MariaDB Enterprise Repository.

Customer Download Tokens are customer-specific and are available through the MariaDB Customer Portal.

To retrieve the token for your account:

  1. Navigate to https://customers.mariadb.com/downloads/token/

  2. Log in.

  3. Copy the Customer Download Token.

Substitute your token for CUSTOMER_DOWNLOAD_TOKEN when configuring the package repositories.
