Of possible interest to those following this discussion, we have just added support to our Docker images for automatic claiming on first run by specifying the claiming token, claiming URL, and optionally rooms and proxy using the following environment variables for the Docker image:
It’s not very well documented yet, but will be available for users using the
latest tag starting tonight, and for users utilizing stable releases starting with v1.27 (which should be out some time within the next two weeks).
We also are working on similar support for automatic claiming using our
kickstart-static64.sh install scripts, using
--claim-proxy options. See https://github.com/netdata/netdata/pull/10084 for progress on this.
