Getting Started With Runbooks
Plural Runbooks are meant to be installed alongside your open source applications and serve as interactive tutorials for how to perform common maintenance tasks.
Plural comes with a library of runbooks for each application; you are also free to create your own.
You can create a runbook just for your own use in your Plural installation, or you can choose to publish the runbook and make it available for other Plural users.
