You can easily list that using:

zypper pa -ir <repo_name_or_number>

Thanks! It works for me only with capital R Please correct the answer. – Nov 4 '09 at 14:01
The capital R is for sorting by repo. The lower case one is for the specific repo. You can check the documentation by typing: zypper pa -h – Mereghost Nov 4 '09 at 14:11
Sorry, I must have typed it just the wrong way at first time. Indeed, r works. – Nov 4 '09 at 15:39
Doesn't work for me using zypper 1.11.22 on OpenSUSE 13.2. Better use zypper search like suggested on the other answer. – Rémi Benoit Mar 16 '15 at 11:29


zypper search -i -r <repo alias|#|URI>
