syspurpose [COMMAND] [OPTION]...
Syspurpose is a utility for viewing and modifying system purpose properties.
The properties (hints) set by syspurpose are passed to a Red Hat subscription management entitlement server (Customer Portal or Satellite 6) to help attach the most appropriate subscriptions to the system automatically. The entitlement server also reports whether the attached subscriptions match the specified system purpose. Satisfying system purpose properties depends greatly on the quantity, availability, and subscription SKU offerings that have been purchased for the organization that the system is registered to.
The set, unset, add, and remove subcommands modify the local system purpose, and when possible will report the updated settings to the Red Hat subscription management entitlement server (Customer Portal or Satellite 6). The show command displays the current system purpose.

The following generic commands can be used as well
- syspurpose set PROPERTY VALUE
Set the value for a specific property. E.g. syspurpose set usage foo is functionally identical to syspurpose set-usage foo.
- syspurpose unset PROPERTY
Clears the value for a specific property. E.g. syspurpose unset foo is functionally identical to syspurpose unset-usage.
- syspurpose add PROPERTY VALUE
Add a value to a specific list property. E.g. syspurpose add addons foo bar is identical to syspurpose add-addons foo bar.
- syspurpose remove PROPERTY VALUE
Clear a value from a specific list property. E.g. syspurpose remove addons foo bar is identical to syspurpose remove-addons foo bar.
Only "addons" acts as a list property. The other properties only accept a single value.
