gitHub as version control for Compuware config, and puppet for server

Has anyone tried to use gitHub as version control for either / or DCRUM and dynaTrace?

I think this could be a good version control system for this and i believe it is in the DevOps spirit.

Also if anyone has tried to use puppet (or any of the other config managers) for compuware servers, that would also be intereseting.

Sorry but we haven't heard about such attempts.

Tarjei - agreed. However, Dynatrace and DCRUM not open source.

As regards your other question: Ansible, Chef and Puppet resources for Dynatrace installations are available here:

If you get to use them, please provide some feedback.

Martin, this looks great, but it looks great for an environment that's running exclusively on Linux.  Are you planning on extending this code for Windows deployments.  And if not, are you open to pull requests to extend this code to include Windows distributions?

Thank you Martin.

I will provide you feedback if we try them. (smile)

Have you by the way seen any similar with Saltstack? I am thinking of Chef, Puppet and Ansible

As a point of note, most of DCRUM's configuration is stored in databases not text files on disk (some are, but not all). It'd be difficult to maintain change control with an external tool.

Since 12.3 the RUM Console includes a config change revision/history feature.
