Although as of Cloudbreak 2.8.0 there is no way to manage cluster templates in the Cloudbreak web UI, you can generate a reusable template from the UI and then reuse it for creating clusters via Cloudbreak CLI. In this blog post, I describe the steps for how to do this.
Step 1: In the web UI, provide cluster parameters and generate a cluster template
1.In the Cloudbreak web UI, navigate to Clusters and then click on Create cluster.
2.To obtain a full list of cluster options, click on Advanced.
3.Provide all the parameters for your cluster.
4.Once done, on the last page of the create cluster wizard, click on Show CLI Command.
5.Click on Copy the JSON to copy the generated CLI skeleton.
6.Paste it into a text editor and save the file onto your computer in .JSON format.
7.Open the file and review it to ensure that no parameters are missing. Save the file once you are done editing.
