New Features

Cluster Manager Enhancements:

  • Major improvements to the Cluster Manager user interface
  • New: Remote Execution (Beta feature)
    • When a user Runs or schedules a Job, the execution can be done on another Cluster member.
    • You can create a policy for how to determine which Cluster members to run a Job on, either a global policy, or a custom profile for individual Projects.

See Configuring Cluster Remote Execution

  • New: Auto-takeover (Beta feature)
    • When a Cluster Member goes offline, another member can automatically take over scheduling of that Member’s Jobs
    • You can define a policy of which members are allowed to be taken over

Configuration for Auto-takeover


# enables autotakeover for members detected as "dead"

# policy indicates which nodes to take over. "Any": all dead nodes. "Static": only allowed uuids

# delay is seconds to wait after sending autotakeover proposal
rundeck.clusterMode.autotakeover.delay = 60

# sleep is minimum seconds between autotakeover atttempts for a particular destination
rundeck.clusterMode.autotakeover.sleep = 300

If using the static policy, you can configure a list of allowed member UUIDs to proceed with autotakeover for if they are marked as Dead. If a member is marked as dead and not in this list, then autotakeover will not be performed for it:
