Foreman Discovery 2.0.0 RC2 is out


we've prepared Foreman Discovery 2.0.0 RC2 release with some bugfixes
and one compatibility change. Discovery 2.0 is no longer compatible with
Foreman develop branch. You need to use Foreman 1.7 with it.

We have updated translations with many new strings, head over to

to help and catch up with it. Thanks.

New features (discovery plugin 2.0):

  • automatic provisioning based on rules
  • indirect communication via foreman proxy plugin
  • support for new discovery image 2.1
  • UI enhancements
  • API documentation via APIPIE
  • new CLI hammer plugin
  • new reboot option
  • bugfixes

New features (image 2.1):

  • ZIP-based extensions
  • improved discovery-debug script
  • indirect communication via foreman proxy plugin

New component (Foreman Proxy Discovery)

This new component acts as a man in the middle between Foreman instance
and discovered hosts. All the communication is handled by this little
proxy plugin so no direct connection is required anymore.

Installation instructions and configuration:

Note that all the documentation moved there, use the link instead
individual README files from git repositories.

Read the installation docs to make sure you have all components and to
learn how to configure the image via PXELinux.

Upgrade instructions and more info about auto-provisioning feature is
pending merge into our documentation (the link above). You can read it
here meanwhile:
