Not that long ago, we redesigned the “admin” interface for managing environments, teams, users, and permissions. We didn’t stop there, and today we’re releasing a new interface for the role builder: our software that lets you create new roles for public and private clouds that don’t support sharing images.
Choose the cloud on which you want to create your role, then choose your operating system
It uses the same three-tier layout as the admin interface, wherein you start by selecting the cloud where you want to create the role. You then choose the region and operating system, followed by the software you want to install. Finally, you give the role a name, and click create.
Choose what software you want, and Scalr will bundle automation free of charge!
The more advanced Scalr reader will be pleased to know that roles can now be custom built using Chef, and you can find a variety of options in the Advanced section.
Customize roles with Chef
Happy role creation!
