A multi server Landscape Dedicated Server charm.


The Landscape systems management tool helps you monitor, manage and update your
entire Ubuntu infrastructure from a single interface. Part of Canonical's
Ubuntu Advantage support service, Landscape brings you intuitive systems
management tools combined with world-class support.

This charm will deploy Landscape Dedicated Server (LDS), and needs to be
connected to other charms to be fully functional. Example deployments are given

Standard Usage

The typical deployment of Landscape happens using a Juju bundle. This charm is
not useful without a deployed bundle of services.

Please use one of the following bundle types depending on your needs:

For the landscape-scalable case:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:juju/stable
sudo apt-get update
juju quickstart u/landscape/landscape-scalable

Customized Deployments

The standard deployment of Landscape will give you the latest released code.
If you want a different version, different options, etc, you will need to
download one of the bundles, and add/change options in the file before
supplying it to juju quickstart.

On the bundle page, download the bundle.yaml file.


Landscape is a commercial product and as such it needs configuration of a
license and password protected repository before deployment. Please login to
your "hosted account" (on to gather these details
after purchasing seats for LDS. All information is found by following a link
on the left side of the page called "access the Landscape Dedicated Server


You can set this as a juju configuration option after deployment
on each deployed landscape-service like:

$ juju set <landscape-service> "license-file=$(cat license-file)"


The pre-packaged bundles will ask the HAProxy charm to generate a self
signed certificate. While useful for testing, this must not be used for
production deployments.

For production deployments, you should include a "real" SSL certificate key
pair that has been signed by a CA that your clients trust in the haproxy service
configuration (or in the landscape-server service configuration if you need to
use your haproxy service for other services too with different certificates).

Unit Testing

The Landscape charm is fairly well unit tested and new code changes
should be submitted with unit tests. You can run them like this:

$ make test

Integration Testing

This charm makes use of juju-deployer and the charm-tools package to enable
end-to-end integration testing. This is how you proceed with running

$ juju bootstrap localhost
$ make integration-test

Or if you want to use the LDS packages from the lds-trunk PPA:

$ JUJU_MODEL=<model> make integration-test-trunk

The JUJU_MDOEL environment variable can be omitted if you want to use the
current model.


(string) Key ID to import to the apt keyring to support use with arbitary source configuration from outside of Launchpad archives or PPA's. In case multiple repositories are specified in the 'source' config key, this should be a comma-separated list of key IDs, one for each repository and in the same order. If a repository needs no key ID, the special keyword 'null' should be passed. Note that if 'source' (or one of its entries) is set to point ot a Launchpad PPA, there's no need to specify a key, since it gets automatically and securely fetched from Launchpad itself.
(string) License file for LDS, either as a base64-encoded string containing the actual license file data, or a file://, http:// or https:// URL pointing to the license file for download.
(string) OpenID provider URL to use to log out of Landscape.
(string) OpenID provider URL to use for authentication to Landscape.
(string) The root URL for this landscape deployment. If left blank the public IP of the first related HAproxy unit will be used instead.
(string) The SMTP server to use to deliver outgoing mail.
(string) The source from which to install the landscape packages. Possible values are: - A version number: "16.06" - A PPA URL: "ppa:landscape/16.06" - A full deb line: "deb xenial main" - A comma-separated list of the previous values, e.g. "16.06, ppa:juju/devel" (NOTE: using multiple repositories is meant for testing only, and not supported for production deployments, that should always just point to a single official Landscape PPA or a mirror of it).
(string) base64 encoded SSL certificate to use for the Landscape server. It will be passed verbatim to the haproxy charm. If not set, a self-signed certificated will be used instead.
(string) base64 encoded private key for the default SSL certificate. If ssl_cert is not set, this will be ignored.
(int) Number of processes to spawn for message-server and ping-server. If set to 0, the charm will automatically pick a value trying to maximize the use of the compute/memory resources available on the unit.
