Stack Builder creates a user scenario for infrastructure manipulation and saves it as a Maestro Stack template. The basis for a stack creation is one of the Primary commands, used to manipulate instances in Cloud. After a primary command, you can specify additional commands manipulating other resources. These commands will be executed one by one after the primary one succeeds (if other is not specified in the Other option). Click Catalog to see the list of all stacks available for your project. Click From Json to paste a ready Maestro Stack Template, CloudFormation or Terraform template .json code.
Stack Builder can be used to create scenarios that would result into the following:
- Running a single command
- Running a chain of commands, and the execution of each next command will start only after the previous one succeeds (no need to check the resources status manually, as is when you work with CLI)
- Running a set of commands simultaneously
- Initiating the creation of an instance (or a specified number of instances) with a number of additional settings (additional storage volumes, specific instance properties, tags).
The saved scenario becomes available in the Run wizard and the users will be able to initiate the scenario execution in just several clicks.
