How to Use Rundeck


Create a job by defining a single step or a workflow that can execute any set of commands, scripts, or tools on any number of local or remote nodes. Jobs can be triggered by the scheduler or on-demand via the web interface or API.


Safely hand off the job to others to execute or follow the output -- depending on the permissions you give them. Collaborate with others and build your organization's library of repeatable and auditable actions. You can also let users to run ad-hoc commands (if your security policies allow it).


Enjoy being the Hero. You've safely given Dev and QA teams access to self-service operations tasks (deployments, restarts, data management, etc). You've made collaboration with your Operations colleagues easier. You've improved everyone's visibility into Operations activity. Now you can spend less of your time fielding repetitive requests and more of your time doing new and interesting things that will further the business.
