Management solution for openSUSE based on Salt-stack

an idea by dmacvicar

Saltstack is the only configuration management solution that does not look like a ball of hair. https://github.com/dmacvicar/playground/tree/minimanager-reactjs/python/minimanager is a prototype of a Spacewalk-like console using Spacewalk as the server and client engine.

The future of systems management

a project by j_renner

A new web UI for saltstack, possibly the future of systems management. The official salt UI halite is now officially retired and saltpad is still very young and in alpha state. In addition to the creation of a new frontend to salt, the goal could be to work towards a full replacement for existing systems management solutions like spacewalk, including the migration (minionification) of systems from there.

Minimal Salt packaging

an invention by kwk

Challenge

The salt-minion client-side agent is still a bit hefty due to its dependencies and SUSE's strange Python packaging. Let's see how to create a minimal salt-minion packaging.

Bootstrap (not yet) minions using salt-ssh

a project by j_renner

In SUSE Manager we want to offer support for bootstrapping systems that don't have the salt-minion installed and configured yet. This can be done using salt-ssh given just a hostname, username and password. See the docs about salt rosters for even more options. What we are missing: - Support for using salt-ssh in our library

Agentless Systems Management Based on Salt SSH

a project by j_renner

This project is about using Salt SSH for managing systems without the need of an additional agent to be installed (besides sshd). With the SSH protocol the connection is initiated by the management server, thus Salt SSH can be used to even manage systems that are located outside of company firewalls, i.e. machines that cannot access a salt-master due to firewall restrictions. In order to still be able to access resources inside a company network though it would be very helpful if the salt-ssh command supported remote port forwarding (as with the -R parameter of the ssh command) for tunneling other traffic through the existing ssh connection, for instance a package manager might want to install packages from a company internal RPM repository. A patch was therefore contributed to Salt SSH in order to enable this feature (merged into develop):

YaST module for (SUSE Manager) salt parametrizable formulas

a project by dmacvicar

Parametrizable formulas is a normal salt module plus some metadata in order to interactively parametrize them. The metadata is used to automatically generate forms that are then injected as pillar data. See original Hackweek project, SUSE Manager support for formulas blog article and its (internal for now) docs.

SSH-Transport for Salt

a project by jochenbreuer

If you are now thinking of Salt-SSH, this is not completely wrong, but also not right. What we are talking about here, is an other Transport for Salt, a replacement for ZeroMQ.

Export "salt-toaster" tests execution profile to Prometheus

a project by PSuarezHernandez

"salt-toaster" allows you to test multiple Salt package flavors across different operating systems via Docker containers. This project is heavily used on the SUSE Manager team to hardening the Salt package that is shipped on the openSUSE/SLE distributions. Link to GitHub repository The "salt-toaster" execution is divided on different steps (image building, container spinning, salt key acceptance, tests execution, etc) but currently we only get the global results for the entire testsuite execution.

Learn SaltStack Enterprise

an idea by pagarcia

Uyuni uses the open source version of Salt to install packages, apply configuration, formulas, states, etc. This project is about downloading and installing SaltStack Enterprise and learn about it, so that Uyuni (which provides a salt-master) can eventually improve and work in collaboration with the SaltStack Enterprise salt-master.

Uyuni/SUSE Manager: build Python APE and a Salt+Python bundle to support ANY client operating system

an idea by pagarcia

Uyuni/SUSE Manager build client tools for each of the supported operating systems: SLES 11, SLES 12, SLES 15, RHEL 6, RHEL 7, RHEL 8, Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 18.04, Ubuntu 20.04, Debian 9, Debian 10... the list is long. This is required because each operating system has different base libraries (glibc, OpenSSL, Python version, etc). A few months ago, the SUSE Manager development team started a (yet unfinished) research task to try to build Salt and all the required dependencies (minus glibc and OpenSSL, because it would break FIPS certification) so that we can always ship the latest version of Salt on each client operating system:

Language Server Protocol implementation for Salt States

a project by cbosdonnat

Language Server Protocol (LSP for friends) is used in a number of code editors these days. There are implementations for various languages, but none for Salt States. The idea is to leverage Salt state module to parse edited files to provide completion of the state ids or paths.
