BOSH Release for jumpbox

The jumpbox BOSH release sets up a jumpbox for use with BOSH/CF/Concourse, installing utilities we've found to be generally useful for these tasks, as well as setting up custom user environments per user.


To deploy a jumpbox, you can use the BOSH manifests supplied with the repository:

bosh -e <env> -d jumpbox deploy manifests/jumpbox.yml

However, that won't generally be enough, since you should customize the configuration with your own user accounts and SSH keys. Here's an example ops file that you can modify and specify with the -o option to bosh deploy:

- type: replace
  path: /instance_groups/name=jumpbox/jobs/name=jumpbox/properties/users/-
    name:  my-user-1                  # creates an account named `my-user-1`
    shell: /bin/bash                  # sets the account's shell to bash
    env:  # clones a git repo of an environment to `~/env`
                                      # and runs `./install` from inside the repo, as
                                      # the user
    setup_script: /path/to/script     # runs after account creation, and environment
                                      # installation. the default value runs a script
                                      # to set up rvm and install some ruby gems we
                                      # find useful
      - ssh-rsa my-key-here           # adds an ssh-key to the users authorized keys file

If you don't want a user to have sudo access, set sudo: no on their user account, and they will not be granted it.

Taking Inventory

The inventory job is an errand you can colocate on your jumpboxen. It will display information about the software installed on the instance, versions, etc.
