Delete Executions in Rundeck – Wrapping it all Up

The previous posts have built the components to allow us to get projects, jobs, executions and remove executions from a Rundeck instance via its API. Now, we can just wrap them up :) The list of packages we need is:

For convenience, I’ve declared a bunch of constants we can use throughout the project: […]

Remove Executions in Rundeck

TL;DR: You have to get the executions’ list and remove the appropriate ones using hte API. Once we’ve managed to get the list of job executions, we can use the API to remove the relevant executions. The command is rather simple:

This method requires: server – the Rundeck’s server address port – the port […]

Get Job Executions in Rundeck

Following the previous articles, we are now in position to query job executions. The query is done via API as well. As a job can have an arbitrary number of executions, it’s advisable to use pagination. The code follows the same lines as the one in the previous entries:

This function builds the URL […]

Map Subdomains to Docker Containers with Synology

The other day I got fed up with having to insert diskstation.local:12345 to point towards an installed service on my NAS. I also thought that my SO has difficulties remembering all the ports (I do too) and cleaning up the browser cache doesn’t help either. So, I thought: Wouldn’t it be nicer if instead of […]

Prerequisites Before you start, you need: The instance’s URL (server and port) An api key for the user Make […]

Remove Large Files in Git

TL;DR: BFG is your friend. java -jar bfg.jar -b 50M myrepo-bfg.git for example The other day I’ve committed a rather large file by mistake (generated movie of the git commit history). This was a bit annoying because all other developers would have suddenly to check out a 1G file :( with no LFS support… As […]

Fix 418 Unused Error on Dreamhost

TL;DR: Have a look at the error log and then to the violated rule. Suddenly, I started to get 418 errors on one of my sites. I’d just get 418 from the source and as they say: that was that. Normally, I don’t even notice such errors, but this one broke a bunch of pages. […]

Run a Rundeck Command as a Different User

TL;DR: Add the rundeck user to the sudoers and then use sudo Installing rundeck on Ubuntu usually results in creating a rundeck user. We had a bunch of issues creating a rundeck job because we needed to execute a command as a specific user (only that user had access to some resources). Unfortunately, rundeck is […]
