Description

Appcanary is a security service that monitors your infrastructure for security vulnerabilities. This module will manage the agent on your hosts.

You'll need to provide the module with your API key and a list of paths to monitor.

Setup

Setup Requirements

The Appcanary agent package is hosted on packagecloud.io, so be sure to grab computology/packagecloud from the Forge. You can just add the following to your Puppetfile:

mod 'computology/packagecloud'

Beginning with Appcanary

You'll need your API key from https://appcanary.com/settings. With that in hand this will get you started:

class { '::appcanary':
  api_key: yourapikeyhere
}

Usage

To have Appcanary monitor the gems in your Ruby application for vulnerabilities you need to provide a path to your Gemfile.lock:

class { '::appcanary':
  api_key: yourapikeyhere
  paths:
    - /path/to/your/Gemfile.lock
    - /a/different/Gemfile.lock
}
