Rundeck is an IT operations management process automation platform.

Execute jobs on your Rundeck instance, and read back execution details to monitor the status of those jobs.

As Rundeck is an on-premise platform, your Rundeck instance will need to be accessible outside of your network for the Hornbill integrations to function.
