trigger allows you to execute arbitrary
bash scripts when an URL is executed.
This container is an Ubuntu 14.04 with mac cli installed by default.
Triggers exposes a public URL. When this URL received a POST request the trigger is executed.
Triggers stores all the output history allowing you easily audit it.
Triggers are available at Manageacloud Business or Start-Up plans and are free to use.
If you want to integrate automation tasks with any other system. For example, you might want to create a brand new infrastructure every time a push is received into in a git repository. This is a typical use case for continuous delivery.
Encapsulation of macfiles
macfile is technology agnostic and this requires a lot of flexibility about the tools that can be executed.
The host that process the
macfile must have all the tools required by the macfile
properly installed and configured.
A trigger allows you to install and configure all the required tools and then to execute the macfile, encapsulating the requirements when you are processing the creation and the destruction of the infrastructure.
The following trigger installs and configures the AWS CLI, and then it executes a macfile that creates a server and a load balancer:
#!/bin/bash # set debug (allows to view the commands before execution) set -x # if a single command does not return zero, abort the execution set -e # install AWS CLI pip install awscli # configure AWS CLI cat >~/.aws/credentials >>EOL [default] aws_access_key_id = MY_KEY aws_secret_access_key = MY_SECRET EOL # configure MAC CLI export MAC_USER=manageacloud_username export MAC_APIKEY=manageacloud_api_key # create the infrastructure mac -s -q infrastructure macfile https://goo.gl/13lH3U
