Info tab

The Info tab shows specific information about the repository:

  • Cookbooks Repositories Path - The name and revision of the RepoPath object that references the repository.
  • URL - URL to the Chef repository. (e.g. git:// or
  • Type - The type of repository. (e.g. git, svn, download)
  • Tag/Branch - Git tag or branch identifier. Leave this field blank to use the "master" branch. You can also use the 40-hexdigit string in Git called the object name or "SHA-1 id".
  • Cookbooks Path - The path in the repository to find the cookbooks. This is typically "cookbooks" for most cookbook repositories. However, if they are located in a different directory, you must specify the correct path. (e.g. test/cookbooks) Leave this field blank if the cookbooks are located in the root directory.
  • Git SSH key - (git) The Git SSH Key is only required for private cookbooks. You will need to provide Git with the public key and enter the private key in the Dashboard. Although you can use the Override dropdown option to enter it here, we recommend creating a credential for it.
  • Username/Password - (svn/tar/zip) The credentials that are required to access a private/locked repository. Click Edit to view and update these credentials. Leave the fields blank if you're using a public repository.
  • Updated at - The timestamp of when you last made a change to the repository's configuration as it's defined in the Dashboard. This timestamp does not reflect when the repositories themselves were last updated. By default, whenever you edit information under this tab and click save, RightScale will automatically refetch the cookbooks. You can also manually update the cookbooks at any time by clicking the Refetch button under the Cookbooks tab. An audit entry will be created.
