architect-client is a client CLI of Architect, the service modeling, management and visualization platform.

Project description

Client library and CLI for Architect API service.

Client Installation

Following steps show how to deploy and configure Architect Client.

pip install architect-client

Create configuration file /etc/architect/client.yml for client.

For single inventory use:

host: architect-api
port: 8181
client_id: salt-master-name
token: architect-token

Multiple Inventory Support

host: architect-api
port: 8181
token: architect-token

If the inventory_mappings is specified, multiple inventories can be queried from the single orchestrator according to the node name.

inventory_mappings:
  node.domain: project01-name
  node2.domain: inventory02-name

SaltStack Integration

To setup architect as Salt master Pillar source, set following configuration to your Salt master at /etc/salt/master.d/_master.conf file.

ext_pillar:
  - cmd_yaml: 'architect-salt-pillar %s'

To setup architect as Salt master Tops source, set following configuration to your Salt master at /etc/salt/master.d/_master.conf file.

master_tops:
  ext_nodes: architect-salt-top

You can test the SaltStack Pillar by calling command:

$ architect-salt-pillar {{ minion-id }}

Ansible Integration

To setup architect as Ansible dynamic inventory source, set following configuration to your Ansible control node.

$ ansible -i architect-ansible-inventory

You can test the ansible inventory by calling command:

$ architect-ansible-inventory --list

Puppet Integration

To tell Puppet Server to use an ENC, you need to set two settings: node_terminus has to be set to “exec”, and external_nodes must have the path to the executable.

[master]
  node_terminus = exec
  external_nodes = /usr/local/bin/architect-puppet-classifier

Chef Integration

We can use -j parameter of chef-client command, It’s the path to a file that contains JSON data used to setup the client run. We pass

$ architect-chef-data {{ node_name }} {{ file_name }}.json
$ chef-client -j {{ file_name }}.json --environment _default

Client Usage

You can use the client to initialise the inventories.

$ architect-inventory-create <cluster-name> <cluster-domain>

You can use the client to initialise the SaltStack managers.

$ architect-manager-salt-create <manager-name> <manager-url> <manager-username> <manager-password>
