Remove an instance automatically

You can use the Agent Manifest File to automate the addition of instances into Panopta upon the installation of the agent on a server. This is written up in detail here. This, in conjunction with Templates, allows you to achieve a fully hands-off configuration experience. You can factor this into whichever server provisioning/automation mechanism you have in place.

In a dynamic auto-scaling environment, you may want to be able to automatically remove those instances from Panopta as well. This can be done by initiating the uninstall with a special parameter. This will unregister the agent in Panopta (to avoid any alerts) as well as remove the instance from your Panopta account. When the server is going to be scaled down and removed, initiate the following commands based on your operating system:

sudo python /usr/bin/panopta-agent/panopta_agent.py --uninstall --remove-instance

For Linux

This feature is only available on newer versions of the Panopta Agent. If you are running an older version, you'll need to upgrade the Agent first.
