Adding a feature in Chef Server UI


#1

Hi

I’m trying to integrate an ‘execute recipe’ functionality to my chef server ui.
It has to do the function of ‘chef-client’ from the UI. Please help me to do
so.

Thanking you,
Anju

The chef server does not have the credentials to enforce that. You’d have to execute something like a “knife ssh” command, with stored root passwords or root ssh credentials. That’s a big security issue.

This will be (is?) available in Enterprise Chef via the new Push Jobs system alongside the Chef Manager web UI. As for implementing it yourself, it would be quite tricky and depends on what underlying transports and such you want to use.
