To create more dynamic PXE profiles, disk layouts, and scripts, variables are available. These variables use a dotted syntax of the server array and are prefixed by "server". More information on the server array can be found in the API documentation.

Variable examples:

  • Hostname: {{server.hostname}}
  • Access an array: {{server.powerprovider.type}}

In addition to the above variables,the following variables are available. While some variables are already accessible in the dotted server array, they are offered as convenient shortcuts.

  • root password: {{rootpassword}}
  • Encrypted root password: {{encryptedRootpassword}}
  • Primary IPv4 address: {{ipv4}}
  • Netmask of the primary IPv4 address: {{netmask}}
  • Gateway of the primary IPv4 address: {{gatewayv4}}
  • CIDR of the primary IPv4 address: {{cidr}}
  • PXE MAC: {{mac}}
  • Timezone of the PXE profile: {{timezone}}
  • Hostname of the remote agent: {{agentHostname}}

By utilizing variables, it is possible to install an OS in a more dynamic manner and use dependent data from the server. If a variable does not exist and is prefixed by "server.", it will be removed from the submitted data before the installation process begins.
