3.8 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

blentz/selinux_types — version 0.1.0 Apr 10th 2014


These types only require that /usr/sbin/semanage be installed.



Creates, deletes, and modifies the SELinux file context rules database. Note that it will not automatically initiate a filesystem relabel after it completes, but you can of course have your selinux_fcontext resources refresh an exec to handle that if you want that behavior.


selinux_fcontext { '/usr/lib(64)?/nagios/plugins/check_disk':
  ensure   => 'present',
  selrange => 's0.c1023',
  seltype  => 'nagios_unconfined_plugin_exec_t',
  seluser  => 'root',


Creates, deletes, and modifies the SELinux network port type definitions. It accepts proto tcp/udp and port (range) between 1-65535.


selinux_port { 'tcp/8080-8085':
  seltype => 'http_port_t',

selinux_port { 'udp/53':
  seltype => 'dns_port_t',
