Today, Wednesday 20th May 2015 I presented the following deck to OpenStack Summit @ Vancouver. Its all ManageIQ branded, e.g. the upstream to Red Hat CloudForms. The videos have NO audio as I spoke over, if I get the audio sometime I will update! UPDATED…… you can watch the OpenStack show video of the presentation – HERE
Here is a lab I put together for a recent event, it was well received and I think it is very valuable to the ManageIQ and CloudForms user bases.
In the lab you will GET and POST RESTapi actions. Its a basic look at some common use cases such as,
- Query a VM’s hardware inventory.
- Query the VMS for any who are tagged with “Function/Database”
- Show the tags on a specific VM
- Create new Category and Tag in the appliance
- Assign a Category/Tag to a VM
- Provision a VM
- Query the status of the Provision request.
Here is the list of GEMs and their info that are included in the CLOUDFORMS 5.3.0 appliance. I thought it would be useful to post, I need this recently for some work I am doing. 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 rubygems.org. 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.
Here is something I get a lot,
“How can I make a service with multiple service items, but then conditional drop some during the deployment?”
Eg. You have a Service Dialog like this one here;

So this Shell-Shock stuff is hitting the press quite a bit!
Fncy finding out really quickly if your Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 systems are patched correctly? Even if they are turned off right now? Wow that is clever not even the virtual infrastructure players can do that…I know…its cool. Here it is..
This video shows how to use the OpenShift for Cloudforms materials to create a blueprint that can deploy a multi machine setup. I demonstrate creating a catalog, two catalog items, a bundle and assigning the OpenShift policy as we desire. Finally we order the service and see it instantiate fully as a working multi machine OpenShift infrastructure.
In the previous post http://cloudformsnow.com/2014/09/22/deploying-openshift-part-1/ 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:
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.
I think most know who follow this blog that I have started posting some video content on Cloudforms as thats quite and easy way to digest or see it for real.
Here are a couple of links to videos on my cloudformsnow YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVePJGIzhe9zBOAW7Ojkv8g
So for the past few years Savon v1.1.0 has been the default GEM in the appliance. Heres a scoop! In future releases, and the upstream builds have Savon v2.
