Monitoring the progress of an OSE Service – Part 2

In the previous post I showed the consumer use case of going into Cloudforms and requesting a service for deployment, namely a service that deploys OpenShift Enterprise.

The following link is a video that shows how you can monitor the installation. The state machine that deploys OpenShift from Cloudforms will automatically send the consumer emails to the progress of the installation as follows:

Deploying OpenShift – Part 1

As a consumer you will want the simplest route to service requests. This video shows how a user would use Cloudforms to request and manage a service they have requested from cloudforms in the form of OpenShift 2.1 Enterprise.


I will follow up with further videos on how to create the services for users to consume.

It was really easy as most things in CLOUDFORMS usually are I simply wrote some ruby to utilise an existing gem called GEMS, that pulls this data from I wrapped the code in some file open and close, e.g. I dumped the list of gems in the appliance using “gem list > gems.txt” then had my little nugget of code read that in. Here it is.

AWS – Elastic Load Balancers and Cloudforms

First entry in ages, but those who know me will have seen I have been visiting a few places around the globe. Anyway, I promised some time ago the ability to add Amazon EC2 Instances to Amazon Elastic Load Balancers, here it is.

Problem was that whilst I have spent a couple of hours here and there on airplanes recently, its still quite difficult to connect to AWS from them! So any work on this had to wait until airport lounges. Its done now so here is the entry for it.

Dialogs – Dynamic DropDowns

Its here and looks great. You can now populate a drop down list from an external source!

Simply create an Instance and Method, its advised you create a new Namespace to store dialog controls into rather than mixing them up into the general automation model.

The method requires the following code behind it;
