{% blocktrans %}
This is a deployment of <a href="http://circlecloud.org/">CIRCLE
Cloud</a>, which is a free and open source cloud manager.
{% endblocktrans %}
{% blocktrans %}
Its most important function is starting and managing virtual machine
instances based on templates.
These templates are also easy to create.
{% endblocktrans %}
</p><p>
{% blocktrans %}
Apart from this tutorial we recommend to try the system, it is quite
intuitive, and the web interface shows detailed instructions on
advanced options.

<h2><i class="fa fa-dashboard"></i> {% trans "Dashboard" %}</h2>
<p>
{% blocktrans with host=request.get_host %}
You can reach this service at <tt>https://{{host}}/</tt> where you can log in
to the dashboard.
{% endblocktrans %}
<p>
{% blocktrans %}
The dashboard is a summary about your virtual machines and other
resources, and the main starting point to access the functions of
the system.
{% endblocktrans %}

<p>
{% blocktrans %}
In the <em>virtual machines</em> box you will find your recent
virtual machines.
A summary view is also available by clicking the dashboard button
(<i class="fa fa-dashboard"></i>).
Click on the name of a virtual machine to see its connection
details, preferences, or to change its state.
{% endblocktrans %}
{% blocktrans %}
Important or frequently used machines can be pinned by the
favorite button (<i class="fa fa-star-o"></i>).
The search field shows results incrementally, and submitting (⏎)
jumps directly to the result, if there is exactly one.
You can start a new virtual machine by clicking on the
<span class="btn btn-success disabled btn-xs">
<i class="fa fa-plus-circle"></i> new</span> button, and
choosing a template.
{% endblocktrans %}
</p><p>
{% blocktrans %}
If you select a virtual machine, you get to a page with all the
details and operations listed. On the left, you will see the state
of the machine and a summary about how you can
<strong>connect</strong> to the
machine.
In the middle there is a tabbed pane, which contains details about
the machine in categories.
{% endblocktrans %}
{% blocktrans %}
The upper right corner is the operation toolbar with the most
important actions that control the <strong>lifecycle</strong> of
the machine.
{% endblocktrans %}
</p><p>
{% blocktrans %}
The tool buttons are color coded by their effect, and enabled/disabled
based on the current state of the machine.
The recommended operation is always the biggest tool button with
the name displayed.
You can click on them as the confirmation dialog explains in
detail what they do.
{% endblocktrans %}
</p><p>
{% blocktrans %}
<strong><i class="fa fa-compass"></i> Home</strong> pane shows
statistics about the virtual machine, and this is where you can
change the name, description and tags of the instance.
We strongly advise to add a description to make the work of the
cloud administrators easier in case of maintenance.
Here is a summary about the <strong>expiration times</strong> as
well. Each virtual machine has a deadline for suspending and
destroying based on predefined leases. With the renew button you
can reset the counters. Of course you will get a notification if
the machine is going to expire.
{% endblocktrans %}
</p><p>
{% blocktrans %}
<strong><i class="fa fa-tasks"></i> Resources</strong> pane shows
details about how much memory and CPU the VM has, and how is it
scheduled.
{% endblocktrans %}
<span{% if not perms.vm.change_resources %}

Users with specific permission can change these settings if
the machine is stopped.{% endblocktrans %}</span>

{% endif %}
{% blocktrans %}You should normally use the machine by connecting
remotely over SSH or Remote Desktop.{% endblocktrans %}
</p><p>
{% blocktrans %}
<strong><i class="fa fa-group"></i> Access</strong> pane allows
sharing the machine with others and transferring the ownership.
Users can see the details of the machine, operators can use most
functions, and owners can also destroy the machine.
{% endblocktrans %}
</p><p>
{% blocktrans %}
<strong><i class="fa fa-globe"></i> Network</strong> pane shows
how the virtual machine is connected to the network.
You can add or remove interfaces, and allow remote access of
different TCP/UDP ports.
{% endblocktrans %}
</p><p>
{% blocktrans %}
<strong><i class="fa fa-clock-o"></i> Activity</strong> pane shows
the full life history of the virtual machine. This is where you
can see the causes of failed actions (just point the mouse to the name of
the action).
{% endblocktrans %}

<em>Templates</em> are the prototypes of virtual machine
instances: they contain configuration values for the different
technical details of a VM to create, and also the network
interfaces and disks to attach.
{% endblocktrans %}
</p><p>
{% blocktrans %}
In the dashboard box you see your own templates and those, for
which you have <em>operator</em> permission. This means that you can
share them with your groups or other users.
{% endblocktrans %}
</p><p>
{% blocktrans %}
You can create templates from any virtual machine with the
<span class="btn btn-info disabled btn-xs"><i class="fa fa-save"></i>
save as template</span>
button.
{% endblocktrans %}
{% blocktrans %}
Additionally, you can also click on the
<span class="btn btn-success disabled btn-xs">
<i class="fa fa-plus-circle"></i> new</span> button of the
template box, and follow the template creation wizard.

<p>
{% blocktrans %}
Groups are the main building blocks of permission management.
On the dashboard you see a list of groups you have access to.
{% endblocktrans %}
</p><p>
{% blocktrans %}
You can also create your own groups by clicking on the
<span class="btn btn-success disabled btn-xs">
<i class="fa fa-plus-circle"></i> new</span> button of the
groups box.
{% endblocktrans %}
</p><p{% if not saml %} class="text-muted"{% endif %}>
{% blocktrans %}
Users logged in with SSO authentication can automatically become
members of groups based on its organizational identifier.
Those who are administrators of an organizational group (or a
professor of a subject in academics) can create groups with the
specific organizational identifier set, so members will
automatically added if they log in.
{% endblocktrans %}
{% blocktrans %}
You can also add users based on their identifier, also if they
have not logged in at the time.

{% trans "Sorry, this deployment of CIRCLE does not support file store." %}

<p>
{% blocktrans %}
Each user has a simple personal file store, which is the easiest
way to keep and retrieve your work done on virtual machines.
{% endblocktrans %}
</p><p>
{% blocktrans %}
You can get and upload files from both the web interface and
from virtual machines. The web interface works like any other
graphical file browser. Virtual machines normally don't get the
credentials for your personal store, to prevent accidentally
sharing them with other users of the same machine. To use the
file store, press the
<span class="btn btn-info disabled btn-xs">
<i class="fa fa-briefcase"></i> mount store</span> button
of the virtual machine.

<ol>
<li>Start a virtual machine.</li>
<li>Customize this machine - install and remove softwares, etc.</li>
<li>Click on ‘Save as Template’ icon on operations.</li>
<li>On the dashboard, select this template to go to the ‘Edit template page’.</li>
<li>On the ‘Manage access’ box, add the specified user or user group with ‘user’ access level. (<a href="#how-can-i-create-groups">You can easily create groups if you need</a>)</li>

<h4 id="how-can-i-portforward"><strong>How can I portforward?</strong></h4>
<blockquote>
<ol>
<li>On the VM’s page, click on the Network pane.</li>
<li>On the prefered interface, type the port number, select type and click ‘Add’.</li>
<li>Of course the machines port must be opened. Opening port 80 examples: <br>
<ul><li>Ubuntu, Debian: <code>sudo ufw allow 80</code></li>
<li>CentOS, RHEL: append to <code>/etc/sysconfig/iptables</code>: <br>
<code> <br>
iptables -A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT <br>
</code><br>and restart the service:<code>sudo service iptables restart</code></li></ul></li>
<li>Now you can connect to the machine, with the generated port number.</li>
