Chef-Guard

Chef-Guard protects your Chef server from untested and uncommitted cookbooks

Configuration Changes Workflow

The introduction section about Monitoring/Auditing gives a nice overview of the monitoring and auditing capabilities of Chef-Guard and describes the configurable part of the workflow that takes place when you make changes to a Chef object. To put things in perspective and to better explain the impact of the configuration choices on the workflow, we tried to visualize all the steps in a single flowchart. Hopefully this will make understanding and troubleshooting the workflow a lot easier.

NOTE: The blue boxes all contain configurable features!
