Foreman Cockpit :rocket:

Display Cockpit components in Foreman hosts.


  • Display Cockpit components (system, terminal, journal, etc...) for a host if Cockpit is enabled on the host.
  • Especially useful if the Foreman user does not have access to the host directly, but Foreman does.

If you don't have the Foreman plugins repository set up, please follow the instructions in the manual:

Red Hat, CentOS, Scientific Linux (rpm)

Set up the repo as explained in the link above, then on 1.10+ Foreman, run:

# yum install tfm-rubygem-foreman_cockpit

or on 1.9 or lower:

# yum install ruby193-rubygem-foreman_cockpit 

Fedora (rpm)

Set up the repo as explained in the link above, then run:

# yum install ruby-foreman-cockpit

Debian, Ubuntu (deb)

Set up the repo as explained in the link above, then run

# apt-get install ruby-foreman-cockpit

Bundle (gem)

Add the following to bundler.d/Gemfile.local.rb in your Foreman installation directory (/usr/share/foreman by default)

$ gem 'foreman_cockpit'

Then run bundle install from the same directory


No configuration needed! Install the plugin and it will detect which of your hosts run Cockpit.

As of now, Cockpit only runs on Fedora, Arch, CentOS, RHEL and Ubuntu, so your host must be running - and associated in Foreman - with one of these operating systems.
