This documentation covers an outdated version of Chef Automate. See the Chef Automate site for current documentation. The new Chef Automate includes newer out-of-the-box compliance profiles, an improved compliance scanner with total cloud scanning functionality, better visualizations, role-based access control and many other features.

Chef Automate exposes an endpoint to stream the data that is visualized in the UI. Every event is streamed as JSON and can be accessed from a websocket consumer by doing the following:

  1. Make sure the node visibility capability of Chef Automate has been installed and is running.

  2. Connect a websocket consumer to the fully-qualified domain name of the Chef Automate server on port 3232.
