Provision from anywhere

Bare metal, Amazon EC2, Google Compute Engine, OpenStack, Libvirt, oVirt, VMware, and many other providers allow you to manage a hybrid cloud through Foreman.


Configuration

An external node classifier, hiera-like parameters, and reports monitoring for Puppet, Salt and Chef are included. Completely ready to tweak host groups in your data center.


Monitor hosts

Foreman reports will tell you exactly what happened in your nodes, and alert you when things go awry. See in your dashboard which hosts are healthy, and which ones are outdated.

CLI

UIs slow you down? Hammer CLI gives you easy access to all the API calls you need to stay on top of your data center.

API

We provide a RESTful API to give you the power to automate most tasks, such as registering hosts, assigning roles to users, and more.

RBAC and LDAP integration

A thorough authorization system based on role based access control (RBAC) allows for tight policies for your Foreman users. If you use LDAP or FreeIPA, you can continue using them for authentication and authorization.

Audits
