I am trying to understand how the Salt Variable (Configure -> Salt -> Variables) are working.
There is a documentation button, but it point to a “Page not Found” error and backtracking every version of the Salt Plugin, I couldn’t find any documentation at all.
What are Salt Variable supposed to be?
Another set of variables over the Hostgroup parameters, host parameter and global parameter?
A way to filter variable coming from hostgroup or host parameter to be included in the pillar?
Any help regarding the usage of that feature, or a link to a working documentation/exemple, would will be welcome.
What I’m trying to do is filter variable out of the pillar, so that I can declare them empty in the hostgroup and have people fill them as required in the host.
