Discovery RulesΒΆ


The discovery rules page is a part of the discovery plugin and will only exist if this plugin is installed on your orcharhino. See also the Discovery Plugin from the Plugin Guides chapter.

The discovery rules page can be accessed via The Configure Menu:

Configure > Discovery rules

The discovery rules page exists to list any discovery rules. Such rules can be used to provision a set of hosts that have similar facts with the same configuration. In particular they allow for the automatic assignment of discovered hosts to a host group and a context (see also Host Groups and/or The Context Menu). They also allow the hostname to be set dynamically using the eRuby-template language.

See the Usage on Hosts and Usage on orcharhino subsections of the Discovery Plugin guide for detailed documentation on discovery plugin usage.
