Job Templates

The job templates page can be accessed via the hosts menu:

Hosts > Job templates

The job templates page houses templates that form a part of orcharhino’s remote execution features.

One way to distinguish between orcharhino administrators and regular users is to place the orcharhino server as well as any attached orcharhino proxies into a separate location and/or organization context.

Alternatively, you can achieve a fine grained permissions concept using roles and filters.

Templates allow the generation of particular scripts from general templates. Since remote execution generally involves the execution of scripts (commands) on some remote host, it makes sense to use templates as part of the process.

orcharhino’s remote execution features come with a number of preconfigured templates that can be selected when scheduling a job.

In general, a clean install of orcharhino will come with any required templates and it is neither expected nor recommended that orcharhino users manually edit any templates. Locked templates should not be changed, otherwise they will not be updated any more. Use the clone function instead. Note, however, that cloned or self-created templates are not updated during an orcharhino update.

In case you know what you are doing, and template editing is desirable, the web interface provides extensive tools to do so, including inbuilt documentation on template syntax.
