The command line and control center of a Data Center or Cloud.
outbit provides a simple UI for orchestrating changes or applying configurations in a datacenter and cloud environment. outbit provides a layer on top of Ansible that allows you to easily wrap up automated tasks and provide a simple way to execute them. The role based access control allows you to implement seperations of duties and limit specific actions to be executed by specific roles. The logging feature allows you to track the history of changes in the environment.
Install outbit client only. This is if you already have a dedicated outbit api server.
$ pip install outbit

Start the API server on your localhost or on a dedicated IP. If your using the Docker container then make sure you have pulled the image and have run the image using the above example.
$ outbit-api -s 127.0.0.1 --insecure
Login to the outbit shell. On the first login you will be prompted to change the default password. If your using the Docker container you can remove the “–insecure” flag since by default its configured to use ssl. If you are using valid ssl certificates and not self signed certificates you can also remove the “-–no-check-certificates” flag.
$ outbit -u superadmin -s 127.0.0.1 --insecure --no-check-certificates Password: superadmin Changing Password From Default Enter New Password: ********** Enter New Password Again: **********
