Parametrizable formulas is a normal salt module plus some metadata in order to interactively parametrize them. The metadata is used to automatically generate forms that are then injected as pillar data.

See original Hackweek project, SUSE Manager support for formulas blog article and its (internal for now) docs.

SUSE Manager formulas

This project could be the next step/evolution of Imobach project and I may take this as the initial code.

The idea is to then create the formula for new employee machines as a Salt formula with a parametrizable form (login, password, Leap or Tumbleweed, laptop or workstation) and use it with AutoYaST bootable USB but keep it reusable for mass deployment with SUSE Manager.

The YaST module should allow to either select a formula from the installed ones, displaying the associated forms dynamically, or be called via AutoYAST with a predefined set of formulas, collect the data, and pass it to salt-call as pillar data.
