Use Cases

  • Challenges around Errata Management (Maintenance window). We have not plumbed errata management with a remote execution framework.  
  • General purpose scheduling. Can CloudForms do this function?
  • GoferD approach may have legs
  • What about Ansible (agent less)  Satellite 5 can operate almost completely autonomously. 
  • From my original use cases from 7-13
    • As a user I would like to create a script or manifest of remote commands and apply it to one or more systems
    • As a user I would like my remote command scripts to leverage smart variables
    • As a user I would like to be able to edit the remote command manifest and re-apply it to one or more systems
    • As a user I would like to copy the remote command manifest, modify the copy and apply it to one or more systems
    • As a user I would like the ability to archive/version a remote command manifest as content
    • As a user I would like to ability to undo the changes evoked by the execution of a remote command manifest (within reason)
    • As a user I would like monitor the operational status of an evocation of remote commands (# of successful completions, # of failures)
    • As a system I want the application of remote commands to retry on failure on a per system basis
    • As a user I would like to apply a remote command manifest to a system group, a host-group, or under Sat 6 script control, to systems that match Facts
    • As a user I need to browse remote command manifests in the system from the CLI/API
    • As a user I need the ability to evoke remote commands from the CLI/API
    • As a user I would like to schedule the evocation of remote commands at any granularity
    • As a user I want the ability to use Kerberos tickets to authenticate the receipt of remote command manifests from Katello/Foreman (can piggyback on QPID)
    • As a user I want Katello/Foreman to log all invocations of remote commands including their disposition

Requirements

  • User stories will be broken down of the into specific actionable tasks to design and develop against.
