  5. Development - Guide for contributing to the module


this module hopefully takes the pain out of config and auth config for mountpoints for the Puppet master or compile masters.


What puppet_mountpoint affects

Changes Hocon settings for mountpoint auth

Controls legacy settings in auth.conf

Creates a new mountpoint in fileserver.conf

Setup Requirements OPTIONAL

Will only work on a Puppet Master or Compile master with the fileserver service.

Beginning with puppet_mountpoint

Decide on the name and folder path for your mount point. create a profile with the resources to configure the $mountpoint::path folder


Create a profile with the file resources needed to ensure the puppet_mountpoint::path is created then provide that Absolute path as a variable and the name of the mountpoint.

#in a profile applied to puppet master
puppet_mountpoint{ 'name_of_mountpoint':
  path => "/path/to/valid/folder",

#in a separate nodes manifest
file {'/example/file':
  ensure => file,
  source => 'puppet:///name_of_mountpoint/filename',


The module does not create the mountpoint::path folder, there are too many variables in depth and ownership just create file resources to compensate. What it does do is allow you to create multiple mountpoints and authenticate them as desired.
