i dont think chef server should do that, but thats mostly because i dont
need it. To me chef-server as an artifact store. And metadata service , a
decent service discovery mechanism if you can withstand couple of minutes
delay (and in most cases I can).
Things like resource reporting, audits, push jobs etc are already provided
as add on (they are proprietary features though). If theres enough people
who needs it, we can get it done via the RFC process, like any other new

To Tensibai point: isn’t it what chef server supposed to do?
Ranjib, that’s probably the way to do it, but again - why that’s missing
in core functionality? Also, it’s version reports are useful only in
relation to other information: health status, last run time etc. Is all
this information goes to tags as well?

that example can be extend to save the cookbook version info as a node

There’s an exemple ont he doc here:
I did adapt an old dashboard named Cuisine (but we don’t use it anymore),
it’s unclean code and I’ve not done a correct installation cookbook. I may
update it on github if you wish to have a look at it and at it’s

Does chef server has capabilities to generate report of environment
status? Was surprised to see it’s not so easy to generate.
I’m looking to get things like list of nodes with the particular cookbook
versions, for example:
cookbook version node status
cb1 1.2.4 linux1 clean
cb1 1.2.4 linux5 failed
cb_base 1.0.1 linux2 failed
cb_base 1.0.1 linux4 clean
cb_base 1.0.2 linux5 clean
cb_base 1.0.2 linux6 clean
and so on
It has to be generated in shell since the web-interface is pretty much
I looked at few plugins like lastrun, knife-audit but none is working
