ood-portal-generator

The ood-portal-generator tool takes a user-defined YAML configuration file and generates an Apache configuration file from the provided template file. This Apache configuration file can then be used in an Apache HTTP server to host an Open OnDemand portal.

The command that generates and updates the Apache configuration file is given as:

/opt/ood/ood-portal-generator/sbin/update_ood_portal [OPTIONS]

At any point you can display a quick reference of the capabilities offered by bin/generate with:

$ /opt/ood/ood-portal-generator/sbin/update_ood_portal -h

   -f, --force                      Force replacement of configs even if checksums differ
      --detailed-exitcodes          Exit with 3 when changes are made and 4 when changes skipped
   -c, --config CONFIG              YAML config file used to render template

Example

Use a local configuration file

/opt/ood/ood-portal-generator/sbin/update_ood_portal -c my_conf.yml

Warning

The systemd file for Apache will run the update_ood_portal script with defaults and will not use a different file, rendering this option obsolete unless you also modify systemd config (/etc/systemd/system/httpd24-httpd.service.d/ood.conf in RHEL 7, /etc/systemd/system/httpd.service.d/ood.conf in RHEL 8).

-t <template>, --template <template>

the ERB template to use as the input

Default

/opt/ood/ood-portal-generator/templates/ood-portal.conf.erb

Example

Use a different ERB template (not recommended)

/opt/ood/ood-portal-generator/sbin/update_ood_portal -t /opt/myfiles/different-ood-portal.conf.erb

Warning

The systemd file for Apache will run the update_ood_portal script with defaults and will not use a different file, rendering this option obsolete unless you also modify systemd config (/etc/systemd/system/httpd24-httpd.service.d/ood.conf in RHEL 7, /etc/systemd/system/httpd.service.d/ood.conf in RHEL 8).
