We utilize Puppet Enterprise for our configuration management. I'm trying to find out and understand what would be involved in adding a section below the Inventory for each node that displays the pending package updates. The attached screenshot shows the area I'm referring to in my post.

If you or someone on your team is a Ruby on Rails expert, there may be a way to do it by modifying the application located in /opt/puppet/share/puppet-dashboard. The HTML fragments that make up the node detail page are located in /opt/puppet/share/puppet-dashboard/app/views/nodes.

If you create a new fragment with the section you want, then you have to figure out how to get RoR to include it in the page. I don't know that framework, so I'm not sure how that's done, but there must be documentation out there ... (more)
