I like Director and everything it offers but I seem to have hit a roadblock with my workflow. I have my system configured with Director (c9c59b3). Import sources and sync rules are configured to sync from a few sources (SQL, files & vSphere) and configured to auto deploy the config. My problem is, this will deploy all pending changes which in some cases will be undesirable.
What I'm looking to achieve is:
- Have Director with all its power do imports, syncs and deploy those changes automatically
- Ability to make other changes via GUI and/or Director API but only have those specific changes deployed when wanted. For example:
- An AWS Lambda that add/removes hosts for AWS ASG's. Reason for this, is we'd like these added/removed as soon as they are created/destroyed.
- User(s) modifying configs in Director GUI to add/remove services, update templates, etc to prepare for upcoming changes to infrastructure. These would not necessarily need to be deployed immediately.
#920 looks like it might be what I need but would like to hear about any other possible solutions or similar workflows. Or perhaps I'm just going about this the wrong way?
Any help would be appreciated.
