Configuration management

We recommend using configuration management tools to deploy Sensu in production and at scale.

  • Pin versions of Sensu-related software to ensure repeatable Sensu deployments.
  • Ensure consistent configuration between Sensu backends.

The configuration management tools listed here have well-defined Sensu modules to help you get started.


The Ansible role to deploy and manage Sensu Go is available in the Sensu Go Ansible Collection.

The Sensu Go Ansible Collection documentation site includes installation instructions, example playbooks, and module references.


The Chef cookbook for installing and configuring Sensu is available in the Sensu Go Chef Cookbook.

Contact us for more information about Sensu + Chef.


The Puppet module to install Sensu is available in the Sensu Puppet Module.

Sensu partnered with Tailored Automation to enhance the Puppet module with new features and bug fixes.
