Populating the Server Library

Adding servers to the library

Adding Servers

Servers can be added to the library one at a time or loaded en masse from a csv file.
Add One Server
Upload Servers
To add just one server to the library, click the Servers tab on the menu bar and Add New Server. This opens the server form for documenting and submitting a single server.
Individual Server Form
To bulk add servers to the library, visit the admin panel and navigate to the Static Servers model. Click the Import button and follow the on-screen instructions.
Server Import
You can upload csv, xls, xlsx, tsv, json, and yaml files. Select the matching format from the dropdown menu.
After a moment, the admin panel will display a diff screen and ask you to approve the changes.
If a server exists in the library, the import will update the existing record instead of discarding the data or duplicating the entry.

Add Server Providers

The infrastructure manager is seeded with a handful of popular server providers:
  • Linode
  • Rackspace
  • Digital Ocean
  • Microsoft Azure
  • Amazon Web Services
  • Google Compute Engine
If your server provider is not pre-populated, new providers can be added via the Django admin panel, /admin/shepherd/serverprovider/.
