Features

The following table highlights the core features of the STACKL.IO platform.

Feature Description
Unified REST API STACKL.IO REST API abstracts underlying IaaS and PaaS platforms and becomes a single point of interaction.
Configuration Store A data lookup system where configuration data is organized in a hierarchical and relational model. The configuration store function as a single source of truth within your automation landscape.
Configuration Store - Hierarchy The resulting set of configuration variables depends on the relation and values can be overwritten further down the tree.
Configuration Store - Granular Control Utilizing the hierarchical structure, a fine grain control can be achieved. Which automation tool to use for which role definition, which proxy agent is responsible for passing through an operation.
Configuration - Invocation By default CRUD operations of stack instances, trigger an invocation for workflow execution. In case this is not desired or partially desired (eg. only for a particular environment, location, zone, role, etc.) then this can be disabled.
Configuration - Inheritance Any object type within the configuration store can inherit from other objects of the same type. Example, a role definition can inherit another role to avoid duplication of configuration data within the configuration store.
Stacks Common definition of the desired state of application and infrastructure services. Through the higher level of abstraction, stacks definitions don’t change in relation to target platforms.
Stacks - Dependencies Within stacks, a resource or resource group can have dependencies to other resources within the same stack instance or to resources in other stack instances.
Actions Actions are a definition of day 2 operations, that can be invoked on any object within the configuration store eg. environments, locations, zones, roles, shapes, etc.
