Who doesn’t love surveys?
We had our fun, now it’s survey time ;-)
While Foreman is free and open source, and the Foreman community does everything it can to support users, sometimes users cannot get to where they want to be without professional help. Foreman is a complex tool. To get started, you require a certain level of Linux sysadmin knowledge. On our Professional Services page, we keep a list of known vendors and consultants who work with Foreman. In this post, we hear from Kris Buytaert of inuits.eu, the organizer of ConfigMgmtCamp, one of the biggest events in the Foreman social calendar each (normal) year, and their history with the Foreman community.
Foreman Discovery is a powerful tool for provisioning new hardware. The 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. Many of the facts we need are captured out of the box, but what happens when we need something a little more? This is where custom facts come into play.
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. If you’re new to reporting in Foreman and want to learn more, you can watch @marek_hulan give an introduction and deep dive into the Foreman reporting engine.
