Alcali is a web based tool for monitoring and administrating Saltstack Salt.
Get notified in real time when a job is created, updated or has returned.
Store your jobs results by leveraging the
master_job_storesetting with database master returner.
Check your minions conformity to their highstate or any state.
Keep track of custom state at a glance.
Use custom auth module to login into both Alcali and the Salt-api using JWT.
git clone https://github.com/latenighttales/alcali.git cd alcali docker-compose up --scale minion=2
Once you see minions waiting to be approved by the master, you're good to go:
... minion_1 | [ERROR ] The Salt Master has cached the public key for this node, this salt minion will wait for 10 seconds before attempting to re-authenticate minion_1 | [INFO ] Waiting 10 seconds before retry. ...
Just connect on http://127.0.0.1:8000, login with:
username: admin password: password
and follow the walkthrough.
The easiest way to install it is to use the salt formula.
