GoGrid is a public cloud host that supports Linux and Windows.
To use Salt Cloud with GoGrid log into the GoGrid web interface and create an API key. Do this by clicking on "My Account" and then going to the API Keys tab.
apikey and the
sharedsecret configuration parameters need to be set
in the configuration file to enable interfacing with GoGrid:
# Note: This example is for /etc/salt/cloud.providers or any file in the # /etc/salt/cloud.providers.d/ directory. my-gogrid-config: driver: gogrid apikey: asdff7896asdh789 sharedsecret: saltybacon
A Note about using Map files with GoGrid:
Due to limitations in the GoGrid API, instances cannot be provisioned in parallel
with the GoGrid driver. Map files will work with GoGrid, but the
argument should not be used on maps referencing GoGrid instances.
Changed in version 2015.8.0.
provider parameter in cloud provider definitions was renamed to
change was made to avoid confusion with the
provider parameter that is used in cloud profile
definitions. Cloud provider definitions now use
driver to refer to the Salt cloud module that
provides the underlying functionality to connect to a cloud host, while cloud profiles continue
provider to refer to provider configurations that you define.
Set up an initial profile at
/etc/salt/cloud.profiles or in the

New in version 2015.8.0.
The GoGrid API allows IP addresses to be manually assigned. Salt Cloud supports
this functionality by allowing an IP address to be specified using the
assign_public_ip argument. This likely makes the most sense inside a map
file, but it may also be used inside a profile.
