We had our fun, now it’s survey time ;-)
It’s survey time!
Please take the time to complete the Foreman Community Survey. We don’t collect Foreman usage data past what is outlined in our privacy. The only way for us to learn how Foreman is being used is from users reporting to us, either via the survey or through conversations in our community.
By completing the survey, you help us make better-informed decisions when we contemplate changes or new directions. In telling us how you use Foreman, you shape the future of the Foreman project.

Yesterday we had a lot of fun and great conversations at the virtual party for @ForemanProject 's 12th birthday. Many thanks to @Netways for the awesome organization - next year it's our turn again. We had a great day with you folks! pic.twitter.com/NkPuGRskFi— ATIXAG (@ATIXAG) July 2, 2021
What did you think of Netways-provided Workadventure instance? Would you like to attend Foreman social meetups in this format in the future?
As much as we enjoyed the party, we sincerely hope that this is the last major online event for the community! Here’s to seeing one another and discussing all-things Foreman in person in 2022!

Automating the discovery of an Intel NUC machines cluster with Foreman
When it comes to Foreman’s provisioning capabilities, to quote @lzap, “the sky is the limit”. Paul Armstrong uses system facts discovered by Facter when the Foreman Discovery Image boots provide us with important information needed to determine how a system should be provisioned. Where he needs to, he also takes advantage of custom facts. Read all about it in Paul’s blog.
Foreman’s growing reporting capabilities
Over the last few years, the reporting capabilities in Foreman have gone from strength to strength. You can now use a wide range of report templates, and also customize or write your own templates to suit your needs. Read more about the latest developments in the auditing Foreman with job invocation reports blog post.
Thank you to everyone who asked and answered questions, opened issues, and made the Foreman community a vibrant place to be over the last month!
