CipUX

CipUX is a framework for server administration. With CipUX tools you can solve daily administration tasks easily. There are several layers of tools for users with different skills.

?PageList(CipUX)

CipUX is made up of several parts: on bottom is the LDAP server. On top of that, the LDAP abstraction layer CipUX::?CiBot can be found. Then the CipUX::Task module delivers daily administration task functions to different institutions: (1) The graphical CAT user interface. (2) The CipUX shell command line, and (3) the RPC daemon.

CipUX interfaces:

CipUX/CAT (CipUX Administration Tool)

  • With the graphical user interface, you may perform several tasks without Linux knowledge (today CAT is a Webmin based tool, but other versions may be developed effortlessly).
  • With the Moodle plugins (under development by the French team), even an inexperienced user can do the work of an administrator.

CipUX/Shell tasks

  • There are over 60 [:DebianEdu/CipUX/Tasks:CipUX shell commands:] which may be used by a semi-experienced administrator. They may be used for creating new tasks, writing macros, or defining cron jobs.

CipUX/low level commands:

  • These very powerful commands give access to every single value of the LDAP database for skilled users, without needing expert LDAP knowledge.

CipUX/RPC daemon:

  • Other applications may also use CipUX for administration tasks, even over the network, by using its [:DebianEdu/CipUX/XmlRpc:remote procedure calls].
