Conductor Setup

Conductor Setup is composed of a set of ansible roles and a playbook named site.yaml useful for deploying a docker swarm running Conductor microservice orchestrator by Netflix OSS.

Structure of the project

The AutoDynomite Docker image script file is present in dynomite folder. The Docker Compose Swarm files are present in the stack folder.

Built With


The provided Docker stack files provide the following configuration:

  • 2 Conductor Server nodes with 2 replicas handled by Swarm
  • 2 Conductor UI nodes with 2 replicas handled by Swarm
  • 1 Elasticsearch node
  • 1 Database node that can be postgres (default), mysql or mariadb
  • 2 Optional replicated instances of PyExec worker running the tasks Http, Eval and Shell
  • 1 Optional cluster-replacement service that sets up a networking environment (including on HAProxy LB) similar to the one available in production. By default it's disabled.

The default configuration is run with the command: ansible-playbook site.yaml Files for swarms and configurations will be generated inside a temporary folder named /tmp/conductor_stack on the local machine. In order to change destination folder use the switch: -e target_path=anotherdir If you only want to review the generated files run the command ansible-playbook site.yaml -e dry=true In order to switch between postgres and mysql specify the db on the proper variable: -e db=mysql In order to connect to an external postgres withouth pulling up a service in the stack use -e db=remote-postgres In order to skip worker creation specify the noworker variable: -e noworker=true In order to enable the cluster replacement use the switch: -e cluster_replacement=true If you run the stack in production behind a load balanced setup ensure the variable cluster_check is true: ansible-playbook site.yaml -e cluster_check=true

In order to avoid confusion of all variables a proper site.yaml has been created for prod environment. Run ansible-playbook site-prod.yaml and this should deploy a stack with prod setup.

Other setting can be fine tuned by checking the variables in the proper roles which are:

  • common: defaults and common tasks
  • conductor: defaults, templates and tasks for generating swarm files for replicated conductor-server and ui.
  • elasticsearch: defaults, templates and task for starting in the swarm a single instance of elasticsearch
  • mysql: defaults, template and tasks for starting in the swarm a single instance of mysql/mariadb
  • postgres: defaults, templates and tasks for starting in the swarm a single instance of postgres
  • workers: defaults and task for starting in the swarm a replicated instance of the workers for executing HTTP, Shell, Eval operations.


The following example runs as user username on the remote hosts listed in hosts a swarm with 2 replicas of conductor server and ui, 1 postgres, 1 elasticsearch, 2 replicas of simple PyExec, an HAProxy that acts as load balancer. ansible-playbook -u username -i hosts site.yaml -e target_path=/tmp/conductor -e cluster_replacement=true
