Servers

List View

The server list shows all servers that a user has view permissions for, as determined by their group and role membership. The list can be filtered by various facets (click Show Filters button) or searched using the table’s search field. If tags are set on any servers, clicking on one also searches the table for that word or phrase.

Users may perform actions on one or more servers by selecting rows and using the table toolbar to, e.g. change the Group, power off, or even run custom-defined Server Actions.

Detail View

A server’s detail view shows its status, hardware configuration, disks, networking information, history, and more. The screenshot below shows an AWS server with some tags and a plethora of custom-defined Server Actions. From this view, users with the right permissions can manage things like server ownership, reassign group and environment, and manage hardware, tags, and parameters.

Change Resources

One noteworthy management action that qualified users can take on servers on some Resource Handlers is to change the CPU and memory for that server. This change can optionally be scheduled to occur at a later time. The job for that change will not progress past the pending status until that scheduled time has been reached.

Like the order form, the parameter options and constraints configured on the server’s group and environment will be used to limit the values that users can enter for CPUs and Mem Size. If one or both of these parameters are part of a preconfiguration, the preconfiguration will be displayed in place of the parameter(s).

To allow a role to be able to use this action, give the role the server.change_resources permission.

Server Actions

Server Actions are a mechanism for adding arbitrary actions to deployed servers, via buttons on their details view. For any action that end-users may need to invoke on deployed servers, CloudBolt admins can add a Server Action to appear on the deployed server’s detail page and, when clicked, run one of the five types of CloudBolt actions.

The dialog box of Server Actions can be configured to display a message in either plaintext or HTML. To do so, go to Admin -> Server Actions and edit the Server Action of your choice.
