Diagnosing problems

When an unexpected problem arises with an inmanta environment, you might want to work directly on the environment on the orchestrator host to diagnose it. The inmanta-workon command, installed by the RPM, provides that functionality. inmanta-workon myenvironment puts you in the environment’s project directory and activates its Python venv. If you don’t know the name of the environment by heart, inmanta-workon --list gives an overview of all environments on the server.

For more details, see inmanta-workon --help.


If you didn’t install inmanta from RPM, you can manually source the inmanta-workon-register.sh script to get access to the inmanta-workon command. You can find the script in the misc directory in the inmanta-core git repository.
