Based on the previous article, I´ve created this video to illustrate what we covered
In this article, I will describe how REST API works natively in Red Hat CloudForms.
REST stands for Representational State Transfer. REST is a web standard based architecture and uses HTTP protocol for data communication. It revolves around resources where every component is a resource and is accessed by a common interface using HTTP standards method.
Red Hat CloudForms provides APIs to integrate external systems and initiate provisioning via CloudForms. In CloudForms, REST can be accessed by adding “/api” prefix to the URL.
https://<IP or hostname of appliance> /api/
This is a follow up on our series Infrastructure Tour Italy. In this part we will show Ansible Tower, Drift Analysis and OpenShift Integration
Red Hat held an event on the infrastructure part of our portfolio in Milan and Rome on April 17th and 19th, 2018. One of the two demos presented was the management of a hybrid cloud environment with the Cloud Management Platform (CMP) Red Hat CloudForms.
The event information and agenda is available at:
Last week we held a Hackathon in Berlin thanks to Christian Jung and Fabien Dupont. We had 35 attendees contributing to 12 tracks covering tons of topics related to State Machines, Ansible, Dynamic Resource Object and High Availability
If you want to join us next time, please let us know! We will be more than happy!
This part will focus on how to create the Custom Button using an Ansible playbook.
Creating Custom Button
CloudForms 4.6 has introduced more options while creating a button. This topic will be discussed in another post.
This series is highlighting the improvements and new capabilities introduced with CloudForms 4.6 about Ansible Custom Buttons.
The Ansible Playbook used in this example will install a user-specified package on the selected virtual machine.
