NOTE: This software is deprecated. It will continue to receive critical security updates until the future release of Chef Server 13.


The chef-server-webui is a simple Rails 3.2 application which talks to the Chef Server API (aka Erchef) for all back-end data. Installation is easy as the chef-server-webui already comes preconfigured as part of the default chef-server Omnibus package install. The chef-server-webui can also be deployed under any Rack compliant server.

The following default configuration values can be overriden in your Rails environment config:

config.chef_server_url = ""
config.rest_client_name = "chef-webui"
config.rest_client_key = "/etc/chef-server/webui_priv.pem"
config.admin_user_name =  "admin"
config.admin_default_password = "p@ssw0rd1"


Before working on the code, if you plan to contribute your changes, you need to read the Opscode Contributing document.

You will also need to set up the repository with the appropriate branches. We document the process on the Working with Git page of the Chef wiki.
