Sensu Entity Manager

Table of Contents

Overview

Event-based Sensu entity management for automated service-discovery (add/remove subscriptions) and other automation workflows.
The Sensu Entity Manager works with any check plugin or event producer that generates one instruction per line of event.check.output in any of the following formats:

  • Subscriptions (one string per line):

    Example check output:

    system/linux
    postgres
    

    Example event payload:

    {
      "metadata": {},
      "entity": {},
      "check": {
        "metadata": {
          "name": "example",
          "labels": {},
          "metadata": {}
        },
        "handlers": [
          "subscription-manager"
        ],
        "output": "system/linux\npostgres",
        "status": 0,
        "...": "..."
      },
      "metrics": {},
      "id": "xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx",
      "timestamp": 1234567890
    }
    

    Example handler definition:

    ---
    type: Handler
    api_version: core/v2
    metadata:
      name: subscription-manager
    spec:
      command: sensu-entity-manager --add-subscriptions
      ...: ...
    
  • Labels and Annotations (one key=value pair per line):

    Example check output:

    region=us-west-2
    application_id=1001
    

    Example event payload:

    {
      "metadata": {},
      "entity": {},
      "check": {
        "metadata": {
          "name": "example",
          "labels": {},
          "metadata": {}
        },
        "handlers": [
          "label-manager"
        ],
        "output": "region=us-west-2\napplication_id=1001",
        "status": 0,
        "...": "..."
      },
      "metrics": {},
      "id": "xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx",
      "timestamp": 1234567890
    }
    

    Example handler definition:

    ---
    type: Handler
    api_version: core/v2
    metadata:
      name: label-manager
    spec:
      command: sensu-entity-manager --add-labels
      ...: ...
    
  • Commands (one space-separated command argument pair per line):

    Example check output:

    add-subscription system/linux
    add-subscription postgres
    add-label region=us-west-2
    add-annotation application_id=1001
    

    Example event payload:

    {
      "metadata": {},
      "entity": {},
      "check": {
        "metadata": {
          "name": "example",
          "labels": {},
          "metadata": {}
        },
        "handlers": [

        ],
        "output": "add-subscription system/linux\nadd-subscription postgres\nadd-label region=us-west-2\nadd-annotation application_id=1001",
        "status": 0,
        "...": "..."
      },
      "metrics": {},
      "id": "xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx",
      "timestamp": 1234567890
    }
    

    Example handler definition:

    metadata:
      name: entity-manager
    spec:
      command: sensu-entity-manager --add-all

Environment variables

Argument Environment Variable
--api-url SENSU_API_URL
--api-key SENSU_API_KEY
--access-token SENSU_ACCESS_TOKEN
--trusted-ca-file SENSU_TRUSTED_CA_FILE

Security Note: Care should be taken to not expose the API key or access token for this handler by explicitly specifying either on the command line or by directly setting the environment variable(s) in the handler definition.
It is suggested to make use of secrets management to provide the API key or access token as environment variables.
The handler definition shown below references the API Key as a secret using the built-in env secrets provider.

Configuration

Asset registration

Sensu Assets are the best way to make use of this plugin.
If you're not using an asset, please consider doing so!
If you're using sensuctl 5.13 with Sensu Backend 5.13 or later, you can use the following command to add the asset:

sensuctl asset add sensu/sensu-entity-manager

If you're using an earlier version of sensuctl, you can find the asset on the Bonsai Asset Index.

Handler definition

---
type: Handler
api_version: core/v2
metadata:
  name: sensu-entity-manager
spec:
  type: pipe
  command: >-
    sensu-entity-manager
    --add-all
  timeout: 5

type: Secret
api_version: secrets/v1

  id: SENSU_ENTITY_MANAGER_API_KEY

Proxy Support

This handler supports the use of the environment variables HTTP_PROXY, HTTPS_PROXY, and NO_PROXY (or the lowercase versions thereof).
HTTPS_PROXY takes precedence over HTTP_PROXY for https requests.
The environment values may be either a complete URL or a "host[:port]", in which case the "http" scheme is assumed.

Supported Annotations

The following event-scoped annotations are supported.

  • sensu.io/plugins/sensu-entity-manager/config/patch/subscriptions

    Comma-separated list of subscriptions to add (e.g. nginx,http-service).

  • sensu.io/plugins/sensu-entity-manager/config/patch/labels

    Comma-separated list of key=value pairs to add (e.g. region=us-west-1,app=example).

  • sensu.io/plugins/sensu-entity-manager/config/patch/annotations

    Semicolon-separated list of key=value pairs to add (e.g. scrape_config="{\"ports\": [9091,9093]}";service_account=sensu).

NOTE: event-scoped annotations are set at the root-level of the event (i.e. event.Annotations).
Entity-scoped (event.Entity.Annotations) and Check-scoped (event.Check.Annotations) annotations are currently not supported.

Examples

To change the example argument for a particular check, for that checks's metadata add the following:

type: CheckConfig
api_version: core/v2
metadata:
  annotations:
    sensu.io/plugins/sensu-entity-manager/config/example-argument: "Example change"
[...]
