This release mostly brings documentation updates as well as a fix for a newer Docker build error introduced to dependent library changes. There is however, one major change which is the credentials override feature.

This feature allows you to specify any number of credentials within the config/config.yml file and use those SSH credentials within a Runbook.

Example Runbook:

name: Winning
  second: "*/20"
    execute_from: target
    type: cmd
    cmd: test -d /etc
    credentials: winning
    execute_from: target
    type: cmd
    cmd: echo "1"
    trigger: 0
    frequency: 120
      - CRITICAL
      - WARNING
      - UNKNOWN
    credentials: winning

Example Credentials in config/config.yml:

    user: root
    gateway: False
    key: |
          -----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
          -----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
    user: notroot
    key: |
          -----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
          -----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
