Trigger is a plugin that calls external scripts (on the server) at the end of each client run.


First, add Trigger to the plugins line in bcfg2.conf. Then do the following:

mkdir /var/lib/bcfg2/Trigger
echo "#!/bin/sh\necho $1\n" > /var/lib/bcfg2/Trigger/
chmod +x /var/lib/bcfg2/Trigger/

Use cases

  1. Completing network builds (ie resetting from the build target to the boot PXE target)
  2. Integration with external systems

Trigger Arguments

Triggers are run with a series of arguments.

  1. client hostname
  2. -p
  3. client profile
  4. -g
  5. group1:group2:..:groupN (all client groups)
