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:

Whether you operate a single standalone CloudForms appliance or multiple multizone regions geographically dispersed with a global master region, effective management makes all the difference.

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.
Continue reading “Ansible Custom Buttons in CloudForms (Part 2 creating the button)”
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.

One of the exciting new features in CloudForms 4.6 within Automate is Embedded Methods. That is, one can store reusable, directly callable, ruby code within Automate and access from other Automate Methods.

For the last few posts Laurent Domb has been explaining how to squeeze CloudForms and AWS integration by teaching you how to:
- Upload the CF images to AWS
- Create all the needed config files in AWS
- Deploy CF on AWS
- Configure the new in 4.6 SmartState Analysis (SSA)
- Use that SSA to add a compliance policy to an instance
- Use AWS authentication in CF
You can find the blog posts here:
Please let us know what are your thoughts and which other series would you like to read in the blog
If you want to use IAM authentication for CloudForms so that IAM users can authenticate with CFME you need to do the following.
The current code requires you to add root (account owner credentials) to the authentication field. So the Access key and the Secret Key are from the root user, not the IAM user.

We all know that sometimes we need some help with any tool we want to set up, and in CloudForms we are having such a great momentum because we included Ansible Automation Inside as a way to facilitate our users to interact and create custom action in CloudForms using it (as we covered previously on the Ansible Series)

In this post of our series, we will demonstrate what we did in the previous sections in which we configured AWS and CloudForms, to run a SmartStaty analysis to automatically resolve a vulnerability in Java
In the video, I will:
- Perform a SmartState Analysis (SSA) in my instance
- Review the SSA process
- Add a compliance policy to the instance
- Execute the policy
- Verify the remediation action
- Validate the auto-remediation
This part of the blog series is probably the most interesting one: when you launch a SmartState analysis you will see the following in you evm log files.
