attribute "serverdensity/account", :display_name => "Your Server Density account", :description => "Your Server Density subdomain, i.e. companyname.serverdensity.io", :type => "string", :required => "required"

serverdensity::default

Check attributes/default.rb for the full list

Usage

serverdensity::default

Just include serverdensity in your node's run_list to have the agent installed without any configuration:

{
  "name":"my_node",
  "run_list": [
    "recipe[serverdensity]"
  ]
}

To install and configure the agent include serverdensity in your node's run_list and configure the token and sd_account attributes

Including your API token will allow the cookbook to query the API and generate a new agent key for you, or if the device already exists, return the correct agent key. You can either specify your account and token in attributes/default.rb or you can specify attributes in your run_list too:

{
  "name":"my_node",
  "serverdensity": {"token": "b97da80a41c4f61bff05975ee51eb1aa","sd_account":"example"},
  "run_list": [ "recipe[serverdensity]" ]
}

You can also include any of the attributes from attributes/default.rb in your run list to install and configure plugins. Plugin installation is decided by the presence of the first attribute in the list for the specific plugin:

{
  "name":"my_node",
  "serverdensity": {"token": "b97da80a41c4f61bff05975ee51eb1aa","sd_account":"example","apache_status_url":"http://localhost/server-status?auto"},
  "run_list": [
    "recipe[serverdensity]"
  ]
}
