The Red Hat Developer program provides a number of member benefits, including a no-cost Red Hat Developer Subscription for Individuals which allows access to Red Hat products offered through the program. The Red Hat Developer Subscription for Individuals provides access to Red Hat’s product portfolio via the Products for Developers page—including Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Members of the Red Hat Developer program are notified automatically via email to annually renew their program membership and included subscriptions, at which time their Red Hat Enterprise Linux system registrations must be manually renewed in the software.

Manual renewal of system registrations for Red Hat Enterprise Linux is simple and only requires that you login to the Red Hat Developer site and agree to the Red Hat Developer program Terms and Conditions.

You must wait until your current subscription expires before you can renew it. 

The Red Hat Subscription Management pane in the Customer Portal may show your Red Hat Enterprise Linux Developer Subscription for individuals as "Ready to renew" up to 120 days before the date of expiration. However, no action can be taken until after the subscription has reached the end date.

To renew your subscription

  1. Login to the Red Hat Developer website
  2. Agree to the terms and conditions when prompted by the Additional Action Required page.
