What's Alcali?

Alcali is a web based tool for monitoring and administrating Saltstack Salt.


  • Get notified in real time when a job is created, updated or has returned.

  • Store your jobs results by leveraging the master_job_store setting with database master returner.

  • Check your minions conformity to their highstate or any state.

  • Keep track of custom state at a glance.

  • Use custom auth module to login into both Alcali and the Salt-api using JWT.

  • LDAP and Google OAuth2 authentication.

Try it!

If you just want to have a look, just clone the repository and use docker-compose:

git clone
cd alcali
docker compose up --scale minion=2

Once you see minions waiting to be approved by the master, you're good to go:

minion_1  | [ERROR   ] The Salt Master has cached the public key for this node, this salt minion will wait for 10 seconds before attempting to re-authenticate
minion_1  | [INFO    ] Waiting 10 seconds before retry.

Just connect on, login with:

username: admin
password: password

and follow the walkthrough.


The easiest way to install it is to use the salt formula.

Make sure to check the installation docs first!
