ForemanGitTemplates

This is a plugin for Foreman that adds support for using templates from Git repositories.

Compatibility

Foreman Version Plugin Version
>= 1.20 ~> 1.0
>= 2.3 ~> 2.0

Installation

See Plugins install instructions for how to install Foreman plugins.

Usage

Repositories are fetched as tarball files and must have a specific file structure. The root directory should be named templates. Inside the root directory there should be directories for template kinds and for snippets. Only one template for template kind is supported however multiple snippets are supported. Template file should be named template.erb. You can also define a default local boot template in the file named default_local_boot.erb. Snippet filenames will be downcased and spaces will be replaced by underscores.

.
└── templates
    ├── PXELinux
    │   ├── template.erb
    │   └── default_local_boot.erb
    ├── provision
    │   └── template.erb
    └── snippets
        ├── snippet_1.erb
        └── snippet_2.erb

In order to use templates from the repository you have to set template_url host parameter (specify the HTTP authentication credentials if necessary). To set host parameters navigate to the edit host page and open "Parameters" tab.

Host Parameters

From now the template content for this host will be fetched from the repository. To test this open /unattended/provision?spoof=<host_ip>. The template stored in the provision directory should be rendered.

Troubleshooting

  • There was an error rendering the provision template: Cannot fetch repository from <template_url>. Response code: 404
    • check if the URL is correct
  • There was an error rendering the provision template: Cannot read <template> from repository
    • check if there is requested template in the repository

Gitlab Repository Integration

If you want to use a private repository hosted on a Gitlab instance to store your Foreman templates, you can use Gitlab's repositories API to construct the template_url parameter in Foreman. Create a dedicated Foreman user in Gitlab and set up a Personal Access Token that you can use in the template_url.
