CREATE host or hostgroup with new fields

Hi everyone !!

My questions will sound a bit stupide but i don't know how to call the
method create Host or hostgroup with new fields from my new plugin ? all i
know is with name and when i add fields value like operating_system id it
doesn't' appears on foreman UI ?

Thanks in advance for you help

Hi,
I am not sure what you are trying to do and where you call your method, but
it may be a strong parameter issue. We create host(group) by passing it
parameters and calling 'save' on it [1].
Notice the 'hostgroup_params' method. It comes from a concern [2] that
takes care of whitelisting the params that we want to update. So if you add
new fields, you need to make sure they do not get filtered out.

Hope this helps,
Ondrej Prazak

Hi,
First thank you for the response , For my situation i m trying to
develop a plugin for foreman … and i need to create a list of hosts
automatically From my platform to Foreman …The bridge is my plugin so
instead of using a rest Api of foreman and creating host by host with
making the parameters manually … i want to call just a method from
foreman that create a host and then look to automatize the operation .
I did in my plugin controller .
Host.create :name=> test , :manage=> false , :build=> false
Hostgroup.create :name=> testgroup
So i want to know how can add parameters to the host and hostgroup
creation

I tried to do
Host.create :name=> test , :manage=> false , :build=> false ,
operatingsystem_id => 1
but it doesn't work ??

Thanks again for your help

It's also worth noting that trying to assist with code problems is
almost impossible when we can't see the code. Do you have you plugin
available on the public internet somewhere (e.g. GitHub) for us to look
at?

Hi Greg ,
I did sent you a message i don't know if you get it ?

You sent it to me personally instead of to the mailing list, and it got
filtered to a folder I don't often look at. Make sure you're replying
to the list rather than privately :slight_smile:

You say you've not published the code - that makes it very difficult to
help you. It's almost impossible to say what the issue might be without
it - there are just too many unknowns.

Unless you have specific business reasons not to publish it, then I
would suggest grabbing a Git repo on GitHub or Gitlab, storing the code
then, and then replying with a link to where you're seeing issues in
your code. You've really nothing to lose, and everything to gain.

Cheers
Greg

with many faults .
My problem is that i don't know how create a host with many global
Parameters
I can do it with one paramater .
Host.create :name=> test , :manage=> false , :build=> false ,
:host_parameters_attributes => [:name => 'dfdfd' , :value => 'hj'h' ]
Now if i want to make more host_parameters_attributes i don't know the
syntax ?

Thanks again ,
