Howto move Saltstack tops and pillar contents to MongoDB

I’m a heavy user of Saltstack, on my home network i develop salt states and test new stuff and on my production servers i use the results of my development at home.

My motiviation for this:

  • I have a dream of automated deployed LXD containers which you can manage with a web interface like Froxlor.
  • I want a database where i can easily modify contents with a script.


  • Knowledge of Saltstack
  • Knowledge of MongoDB

Salt Modules in use
