Deploying BOSH Add-Ons
Page last updated:
This documentation explains how to deploy optional BOSH Add-ons as a part of installing the Pivotal Platform platform.
BOSH Add-ons are optional platform extensions that you deploy with BOSH rather than installing them as Pivotal Operations Manager tiles.
Pivotal recommends installing BOSH Add-ons immediately after deploying BOSH and Ops Manager, before you use Ops Manager to add tiles to the platform.
Open-source BOSH Add-ons include a syslog forwarder, a custom SSH login banner, and a tool for adding SSH users.
See Deploying Software with BOSH for an overview of the BOSH deployment process.
