App::NetdiscoX::Web::Plugin::RANCID - Link to device backups in RANCID/WebSVN
# in your ~/environments/deployment.yml file extra_web_plugins: - X::RANCID plugin_rancid: location: 'https://websvn-server.example.com/rancid/%DEVICE%'
This is a plugin for the App::Netdisco network management application. It adds a row to the Device Details page named "RANCID" with a link to your local RANCID/WebSVN installation hosting the device configuation backups.
Create an entry in your
~/environments/deployment.yml file named "
plugin_rancid", containing the following settings:
Value: String, Required.
Name of the server hosting your local WebSVN installation. This should also include the path under which backup files are stored for the devices.
The text "
%DEVICE%" must be included, and it will be substituted with the name or IP of the device. That is, this setting must be a complete link to a RANCID web page, only with the device name or ip changed to be "
The text "
%GROUP%" will be replaced with the group name for this device, if known to Netdisco. This uses the same configuration as for netdisco-rancid-export, an example of which is below:
rancid: by_ip: [ other ] by_hostname: [ other2 ] groups: switch: [ 'name:.*[Ss][Ww].*' ] rtr: [ 'name:[rR]tr.*' ] ap: [ 'name:[aA][pP].*' ]
Briefly, each group value is a list of rules for matching devices similar to those used by any
*_only configuration item. You can provide an IP, subnet or prefix, regular expression to match a device name, or device attribute and regular expression as in the above example.
The device DNS name is used, or if missing the device SNMP sysName. Adding the group to the list in
by_ip will make the link include the device IP instead of the name. Adding the group to the list in
by_hostname will use the device FQDN minus the
domain_suffix config item (i.e. the hostname).
Value: Boolean. Default: false.
If set to true, the hyperlink is configured to open the WebSVN page in the same browser window or tab as Netdisco.
