17.5. Control

This section of the UX contains critical information for managing the provisioning of nodes within Digital Rebar. Workflows are the high level instruction path necessary for DRP to perform a provision. Workflows are composed of individual stages which accomplish a specific task.

17.5.4. Task Details

During the boot process, tasks provide additional configuration to machines in the form of templates. BootEnvs will use these sets of templates to construct specific jobs for a machine.

Within a task, templates are processed in the order they are assigned, so it’s important to check that templates are attached correctly to a task.

Machines will only process one job at a time, and jobs are not created until the instant they are required.
