Hello,
We are using ressources.xml to store custom attributes that are used by our generic deployments scripts; to retrieve nodes specific variables.

Example:
<node name="node1" description="node1" role="appserver" groupe="prod" hostname="node1" osArch="sparc" osFamily="unix" osName="SunOS" osVersion="5.10" username="rundeck" app_ctxroot="myapp1:/myapp1 myapp2:/myapp2 etc ....

So our ressources.xml is getting even more larger.

I have 2 questions:

  • is there a limit, for the maximum number of custom attributes a node can have ?
  • in the "nodes" view of the rundeck webui, our custom attributes seems to be to long, so the webui can't display the entire attribute. Currently each attribute is displayed in only one line. Is there a way to get multiple lines for each attribute ? (for example: a carriage return)
    This is just for convenience. But that would be usefull.

Thanks for your help
Best regards
Jérôme

Hi @jerome83136,
There is no limit to the number of attributes to declare for nodes. Can you give an example of a very long attribute that doesn't display well in the GUI?

Thanks

Hello,
"There is no limit to the number of attributes to declare for nodes." --> Great !
For the example, you will find an attached picture which illustrate the problem.

As you can see, in the "Nodes" view; we have attributes like "app_clusters:" which get truncated.
Other attributes like "groupe:" or "role:" are not truncated, because they are smaller.

Thanks for your help

@jerome83136 would you prefer to have rundeck wrap the value?

I'm sorry I don't see what you mean by "wrap the value"
What would it look like?

I think I would prefer rundeck to display the values, by displaying as many new lines as necessary for each attribute. Or maybe a sliding bar in the browser?
What is possible?

I would like being able to see all the values of each attribute, whatever the number of values, in the nodes view of the rundeck webui.

One last thing: an embedded nodes editor in the webui would be great 😉

Thanks again for your help
