Build, Install, and Configure an Inductor

  1. Build the jar file. It is in target/inductor-VERSION.jar.
mvn clean package
  1. Build the gem.
gem build inductor.gemspec

It creates an inductor-VERSION.gem in the root directory.

  1. Install the gem from the root directory.
gem install inductor-VERSION.gem


The inductor gem creates configuration files and directories when the inductor add command is run.

For a private zone, the authorization key is specified when you create the zone from the UI.

For a public zone, the key is specified in the packer/services/provider file.

For reference only:

A conf.dir argument is passed to the inductor at runtime and contains an inductor.properties.

This is generated via the inductor gem when inductor add is run.

The following are sample contents:
