##Overview

Puppet Module for managing OS X Configuration profiles (both device and user profiles)

##Module Description

The mobileconfig_profile module provides a new resource type to install and remove mobileconfig profiles on Mac OS X. These profiles allow you to enforce policy and otherwise configure OS X.

You can make such profiles in a couple of ways:

##Setup

###What mobileconfig_profile affects

  • Installed Profiles (listed in System Preferences -> Profiles)
  • Any settings contained in Profiles you install
  • Setting Payloads with System (Device) or User scope

###Setup Requirements

pluginsync needs to be enabled on agents

###Beginning with mobileconfig_profile

This module provides the config_profile type for installing/removing profiles.
Minimal system profile (you manage the file/directory seperately):

config_profile { 'com.apple.mdm.host.private.uuid.alacarte':
  ensure    => installed,
  path      => '/path/to/profile/file/on/system/file.mobileconfig',
  system    => true,
  subscribe => File['/path/to/profile/file/on/system/file.mobileconfig'],
}

##Usage

###Install System Profile (manage the file myself)

config_profile { 'com.apple.mdm.host.device.uuid.alacarte':
  ensure    => installed,
  path      => '/path/to/profile/file/on/system/file.mobileconfig',
  system    => true,
  subscribe => File['/path/to/profile/file/on/system/file.mobileconfig'],
}

###Install same Profile for two Users (manage the file myself)

config_profile { 'johns_cool_profile':
  identifier => 'com.apple.mdm.host.user.uuid.alacarte',
  ensure     => installed,
  path       => '/path/to/profile/file/on/system/file.mobileconfig',
  user       => 'john',
  subscribe  => File['/path/to/profile/file/on/system/file.mobileconfig'],
}

config_profile { 'sues_cool_profile':
  identifier => 'com.apple.mdm.host.user.uuid.alacarte',
  ensure     => installed,
  path       => '/path/to/profile/file/on/system/file.mobileconfig',
  user       => 'sue',
  subscribe  => File['/path/to/profile/file/on/system/file.mobileconfig'],
}

###Install System/User Profile (also manage the file)

Use a template:

mobileconfig_profile { 'com.apple.mdm.host.device.uuid.alacarte':
  ensure  => installed,
  path    => '/path/to/profile/file/on/system/file.mobileconfig',
  system  => true,
  content => template("${module_name}/profiles/Settings_for_device.mobileconfig.erb"),
}

Use puppet file server:

mobileconfig_profile { 'com.apple.mdm.host.user.uuid.alacarte':
  ensure  => installed,
  path    => '/path/to/profile/file/on/system/file.mobileconfig',
  user    => 'sue',
  source  => "puppet:///modules/${module_name}/profiles/Settings_for_user.mobileconfig",
}

##Reference

Defined Types

  • mobileconfig_profile: Manages file/directory and installing profile

Types with Providers

  • config_profile: Only Manages installing profile

##Limitations

This module has been built on and tested against Puppet 3.2.4 and higher.
While I am sure other versions work, I have not tested them.

Configuration profiles are only supported on Apple Mac OS X.
This module has been tested on 10.8 "Mountain Lion" and newer.

No plans to support other versions (unless you add it :)..
