"The role of the "tayu" is to express the emotions and the personality of the puppets." wikipedia.
A web service to integrate PuppetDB with Rundeck.
Installation & Usage
Install the gem
$ sudo gem install tayu --no-ri --no-rdoc
Run as a service
$ sudo wget "https://raw.github.com/sirhopcount/tayu/master/tayu.init" -O "/etc/init.d/tayu" $ sudo /etc/init.d/tayu start
Tayu has a yaml-based configuration file called tayu.yml. Depending on your gem path you can find it in the config subdirectory of your tayu installation.
The default configuration is as follows:
:puppetdb_server: localhost :puppetdb_port: 8080 :username: rundeck :allowed_tags: architecture
The options pretty much speak for them selfs.
- puppetdb_server : hostname or ip address of PuppetDB server.
- puppetdb_port : Default should be good but if you have your PuppetDB running on another port you can change it here.
- username : The username passed to rundeck (used for ssh/scp connections).
- allowed_tags : Which facts should converted to tags.
Facts as Tags
Tayu gives you the ability to pass facts as tags to Rundeck. If for example you have created an custom fact called location you can pass this as an tag by adding it to the allowed_tags option.
Tayu will then pass the fact as an tag to Rundeck.
