Instant deployment with Fleet Managed Cloud. Join the beta
When developing Fleet, it may be useful to create seed data that includes users and teams.
In order to run scripts that make use of premium features, make sure you have started the server with the correct flags as described in Testing.
Check out this Loom demo video that walks through creating teams seed data: https://www.loom.com/share/1c41a1540e8f41328a7a6cfc56ad0a01
For a text-based walkthrough, follow these steps:
First, create an
env file with the following contents:
export SERVER_URL=https://localhost:8080 # your Fleet server URL and port export CURL_FLAGS='-k -s' # set insecure flag export TOKEN=eyJhbGciOi... # your api token
Note: store the
envfile somewhere you won't commit your token, or apply these 3 environment variables directly in the command line.
Next, set the
FLEET_ENV_PATH to point to the
env file using the command line.
This will let the scripts in the
/tools/api/fleet/ folder source the
Finally, run one of the bash scripts located in the /tools/api directory.
fleet/create_free script will generate an environment to roughly reflect an installation of Fleet Free. The script creates 3 users with different roles. From the fleet directory, run:
fleet/create_premium script will generate an environment to roughly reflect an installation of Fleet Premium. The script will create 2 teams of 7 users with different roles. From the fleet directory, run:
fleet/create_figma script will generate an environment to reflect the mockups in the Fleet EE (current) Figma file. The script creates 3 teams and 12 users with different roles. From the fleet directory, run:
Each user generated by the script has its password set to
Like all regular users, seeded users' API tokens expire frequently. For an API token that does not expire, create an API-only user.
Set up SMTP options in your developer environment first to invite a SSO user.
To create a handful of test hosts, you can run containerized
osqueryd Docker test hosts. As these Docker test hosts are RAM intensive, alternatively, you can use
osquery-perf to create thousands of simulated test hosts.
