A message will be displayed, indicating that the module was successfully installed. Then click the "Add Server" button.

Enter the details for your Pterodactyl server.

After filling out these options, click "Add Server" to add your Pterodactyl server.

Server Groups

Server groups are useful for categorizing Pterodactyl servers. When creating a Package, a specific server, or a server group may be selected for provisioning. Blesta will automatically select a Pterodactyl server to provision with when a server group is chosen.

To add a server group, from the Pterodactyl overview at  [Settings] > [Company] > [Modules] > Pterodactyl, click "Add Server Group", then enter the details.


OptionDetails
Group Name

Enter the name for this server group.

Add OrderChoose how servers in this group will be selected for provisioning. Currently, first non-full server is the only add order.
Assigned ServersSelect servers under "Available Servers" and click to move them to the left column to add them to the group.

Configurable Options Overview

Configurable Options for Pterodactyl are dynamic. Availability of Configurable Options will depend on the game (Nest) and egg that will be used. To find the name of the configurable options for the Nest and Egg that you'd like to deploy, visit Servers and click the "Create Server" button. Select your Nest and Egg, and observe the "Service Variables" listed at the bottom of the page.

The above screenshot references the variables that are available to use for config options for the Source Engine Nest, and Team Fortress 2 Egg. This example would allow config options with the names: SRCDS_GAME, SERVER_PORT, and SRCDS_MAP to be used. The variables available will vary depending the Nest and Egg selected, so it's important to check in Pterodactyl Panel first.
