Intro

As an experiment, mich181189 set up an instance of [CI].

Access is via LDAP groups. Currently the Admins group is mapped to the "main" (aka admin) concourse team.

The instance is here: https://concourse.lan.london.hackspace.org.uk/

The web interface is *very* minimal, intended only really as a dashboard. The real work is done with the Fly cli tool.

Quick Usage Guide

This needs to be improved, but here's a primer for the curious:

Login

This example logs into the "acserver" team and names the target "lhs"

fly --target lhs login --concourse-url https://concourse.lan.london.hackspace.org.uk --team-name acserver

after running this, you are asked to go to the website to log in.

Seeing if you are logged in

fly -t lhs status

See the running workers

Concourse requires worker nodes. Currently, the web node is also a (the only) worker. To see this:

fly --target lhs workers

Adding teams

When adding a team, it is useful to specify in some detail what permissions the various groups in LDAP have. For example, the following example allows the Admins group full access, while the Members group only has read access

roles:
- name: owner
  ldap:
    groups: ["Admins"]
- name: viewer
  ldap:
    groups: ["Members"]

Assuming this file was saved as acserver-team.yml, a team could be created with:

fly --target lhs set-team --team-name acserver -c  acserver-team.yml

Note: After adding a new team, it may be necessary to log out of the web interface then back in to gain access
