File README.SUSE of Package icingaweb2-module-director

Create an empty Icinga Director database

HINT: You should replace some-password with a secure custom password.

MySQL (or MariaDB)
mysql -e "CREATE DATABASE director CHARACTER SET 'utf8';
   GRANT ALL ON director.* TO director@localhost IDENTIFIED BY 'some-password';"

In case your MySQL root user is password-protected, please add -p to this command.

psql -q -c "CREATE DATABASE director WITH ENCODING 'UTF8';"
psql director -q -c "CREATE USER director WITH PASSWORD 'some-password';

Activation of API
activate:  icinga2 api setup

Web-based Configuration
The following steps should guide you through the web-based Kickstart wizard. 
In case you prefer automated configuration, you should check the dedicated documentation section.

Create a Database resource
In your web frontend please go to Configuration / Application / Resources and create a new database resource 
pointing to your newly created database. 
Please make sure that you choose utf8 as an encoding.

Install the Director module
As with any Icinga Web 2 module, installation is pretty straight-forward. 
In case you're installing it from source all you have to do is to drop the director module 
in one of your module paths. 
You can examine (and set) the module path(s) in Configuration / Application. 
In a typical environment you'll probably drop the module to /usr/share/icingaweb2/modules/director. 
Please note that the directory name MUST be director and not icingaweb2-module-director or anything else.

Run the graphical kickstart wizard
Now go to your web frontend, Configuration, Modules, director - and enable the module. 
Choose either Director directly from the menu or got to the Configuration tab. 
Either way you'll reach the kickstart wizards. Follow the instructions and you're all done!
