A RightScript is an executable piece of code that can be run on a server. RightScripts consist of changes that can be run on a server during the boot, operational, or shutdown phases. They cannot be run on a "stranded" server. A RightScript consists of a script (typically written in Bash, Ruby, or Perl), a set of attachments that are downloaded from S3, a set of packages that are installed using the system's package manager (yum in the case of Red Hat-based systems), and a set of input parameters that must be passed into the script. In order to use RightScripts on a server, a ServerTemplate must be created, the RightScript(s) must be added to the template, inputs must be provided, and lastly a server must be launched.

The following operational buttons exist from this page:

  • New - Create a new RightScript from scratch.
  • Diff - Compare two RightScripts or multiple revisions of the same RightScript.
  • Merge - Merge the differences of two RightScripts together into one RightScript. Perform a 3-way merge of RightScripts. For example, let's say you have cloned and customized a public script. When a new revision of the public script is published, you can merge those updates into your customized script.
  • Search - Search through Private, Shared, RightScale and/or Partner RightScripts for a specific text pattern.
