The Foreman installer uses Puppet to install Foreman.This guide assumes that you have a newly installed operating system, on which the installer will setup Foreman, a Puppet master, and the Smart Proxy by default.

For this release, the tables for fact values, hosts and reports can be exported to CSV and read by anything that supports this format.

A long-wanted feature, now it is possible to just add a connection to a Compute Resource (EC2, Rackspace, VMWare…) and import any or all your hosts to Foreman.

1.15 facilitates logging to your newly created hosts through SSH by automatically adding the SSH keys from the user or user group that creates the host.

These keys are also available to be used in templates and as part of the ENC data.

In order to avoid unexpected changes in your templates, now you can lock them.

This means only people with permission to unlock templates can modify them, other users would have to clone them.

Components include the Foreman web UI, Smart Proxy, Passenger, a Puppet master (either Puppet Server or under Passenger), and optionally TFTP, DNS and DHCP servers.

It is configurable and the Puppet modules can be read or run in “no-op” mode to see what changes it will make.

Placing the proxy on or near to the actual service will also help reduce latencies in large distributed organizations.

A new setting “Host Owner” (under Administer Settings) allows to set an default owner for newly provisioned hosts.

If you want to modify the default templates, it is recommended to clone them and make your own custom templates.
