Automatic prompt discovery and one-click connection

Christian Nguyen avatarWritten by Christian Nguyen

Here's a typical workflow for starting rails console in production without Cased:

A developer looks up the bastion host IP, they configure their SSH key to gain access into the host, they look up the EC2 instance, they SSH into the instance, they look up the docker container, they enter the docker container prompt, and finally they are allowed to enter rails console.

The workflow with Cased: login with your IdP, click on the prompt you need, enter rails console. Done.

"Why is this such a big deal?" "I don't even have Rails in my tech stack!" By simply saving time on tedious, repetitive tasks per engineer per week - you're making your smaller team as effective as a larger team. This is all possible with Cased's automatic prompt discovery feature.

Cased Shell can easily be configured to provide quick and easy access to the command-line prompts your team uses on a daily basis with our host and prompt auto-detection feature. Rails console, database shells, and any container prompt are now just one click away. No more searching for IP addresses or container hashes.

If you're interested and want to learn more about Cased Shell, feel free to schedule a demo, read the documentation, or send us an email at team@cased.com.
