Check out all the integrations we have with other software.
Ansible is an IT infrastructure automation tool whose Open Source version can be plugged in Rudder. Indeed, Ansible and Rudder are complementary tools since each one of them is dedicated to a different scope of IT automation. Ansible complements Rudder with orchestration and applicative deployment, as Rudder is focused on lower layer automation, compliance checking, data visualisation, and continuous reliability into configuration management. This plugin lets Rudder and Ansible communicate together in order to benefit from both IT automation approaches. One of the main benefit is to gather inventory data from Rudder in order to use them into Ansible.
Monitoring and configuration management are two key functions for maintaining an IS in operational conditions. Centreon is a commonly used open source monitoring tool. The integration plugin automatically adds the machines to Centreon as soon as they are accepted in RUDDER. In addition, configuration policies in RUDDER can include a new method that automatically associates the monitoring template of a configured application with the machine.
iTop is an Open Source CMDB published by Combodo, a French company. This module links Rudder to iTop in order to gather non-technical business data on machines and IT structure model from iTop in order to use them into Rudder to enhance nodes group creation. Conversely, Rudder can feed iTop with technical inventory data.
Rundeck is an open source centralized job scheduler. As for the Ansible plugin, this one can link Rudder and Rundeck in order to benefit from enhanced orchestration features thanks to technical data gathered by Rudder and its agent.
ServiceNow is a leading on-demand, cloud-based IT service management solution. It automates enterprise IT operations workflows and managed IT assets in its CMDB component. This module allows Rudder and the ServiceNow CMDB integration. It provides a Rudder side plugin along with ServiceNow UI Action and Scheduled Jobs which allows to automatically insert Rudder Nodes into ServiceNow CMDB when they are accepted into Rudder, and managed Rudder Change Requests from ServiceNow. Combined with the “external data” plugin, you will be able to manage rudder node properties (and so groups and rules target) from a ServiceNow centered workflow. For that, we provide an example of the “external data” configuration with ServiceNow.
Vault is a storage and secret management tool (asses words, keys, etc.). The integration plugin allows data stored in a Vault server to be used in configuration policies, avoiding storing it on the Rudder server and limiting access to the machines concerned.
