I think those temporary direcories are sometimes useful for debugging
but you might get more help in the manageiq-providers-embedded_ansible channel
This would be great to have: ManageIQ/manageiq#20243

thanks @pemcg. I poked around in /tmp and see quite a few ansible-runner-git* folders that seems to only contain my git repo's contents. I'll reach out in the other channel for some tips too.

Hi guys. Is there any way to create an external link access in a new tab of browser that is always visible or on the dashboard? I'm using engine 5.10.12
Martin Hradil
@himdel
5.10 is hammer, you can still use the settings menu there
and I think there is a dashboard widget with custom links you can add
Martin Hradil
@himdel
there's the widget-menu widget, but it won't open anything in new tab, so you're out of luck with the dashboard, without changing code
unless you do something surprising like generate a custom report with the link in it, and then display that as a widget

anyone know if running an embedded ansible playbook Service on localhost requires an sshd server running on the appliance or is ansible running with the --connect=local option?

@AndreyMenezes isn't that what bookmarks in web browsers are for?
Andrey Menezes
@AndreyMenezes
@himdel 5.10 I can edit main menu from menubar folder. Have any type that could open new tab?
@chessbyte My goal is to add a link with access to the company's documentation in the CF. So any user can have access to our own documentation inside MIQ page
From admin side I have to create direct link's to providers pages too
Jason Frey
@Fryguy
if it's just documentation, you can change the support link via some settings
the first 4 are in the About menu
Martin Hradil
@himdel
type: new_window
Jason Frey
@Fryguy
the others are for provider type specific documentation when creating a new provider
Martin Hradil
@himdel
but yes, documentation links can be edited separately, those would live in the navbar documentation menu

@thesystemninjaneer based on your previous comment, you are using the "ansible-runner version of EmbeddedAnsible", which doesn't run a service. EmbeddedAnsible will just kick off a background job to do a singular run of ansible-runner
By default, ansible playbook services in MIQ will run on localhost (which will use the --connect=local option under the hood)
if you need to connect to another host as part of that playbook, yes, sshd will need to be configured to work with that host properly, and a credentials record setup in MIQ to provide the proper credentials for that host.

@thesystemninjaneer
@NickLaMuro gotcha. thanks. was just testing a simple playbook on the localhost as quick test but getting that generic error in my post above. I ran through ManageIQ/manageiq#20243 to get some debug but didnt see any log info in the /tmp/ansible-runner* dir. good to know i dont need sshd running locally though.
i was able to run my test playbook using ansible cli manually while on the appliance so can rule out a possible fat finger in the yml syntax.

@himdel @Fryguy only shows this:

@Fryguy
there should be a :docs: top level key
actually...mauybe not on ivanchuk...let me check
Martin Hradil
@himdel
prrretty sure you can add a href to those entries
it's hammer
Jason Frey
@Fryguy
ohhhh
Andrey Menezes
@AndreyMenezes
exists any attribute to insert url here?
@Fryguy doesn't exists this entry
Jason Frey
@Fryguy
not sure when docs key was introduced
Andrey Menezes
@AndreyMenezes
perfect @himdel , let me try
Martin Hradil
@himdel
looks like docs is jansa+, I'm still seeing Settings.help_menu references in ivanchuk
so, valid keys are :title, :href and :type
Andrey Menezes
@AndreyMenezes
@himdel I did it and it worked perfectly! Thank you a lot. But if I need to add more items doesn't it work?
Captura de Tela 2020-10-30 às 3.01.36 PM.png
Jason Frey
@Fryguy
@himdel Is Settings.help_menu still available in jansa and kasparov?
Martin Hradil
@himdel
@AndreyMenezes true, you can't add new items this way, it's hardcoded to the 3 items
@Fryguy looks like this is available all the way to master
Jason Frey
@Fryguy
oh nice...I didn't realize
I knew we killed the main menu modifications, but glad we still have this simpler approach
Martin Hradil
@himdel
agreed :) it comes from ManageIQ/manageiq-ui-classic#2238
Andrey Menezes
@AndreyMenezes
@himdel @Fryguy Thank's a lot
today I only have two providers, when I increase I'll try other ways to add more link's
Jason Frey
@Fryguy
If you control the portal that the help menu links to, it's possible you could add more stuff there (and then you also centralize all your documentation)

@AndreyMenezes
it's another team =/
