This puppet module will install and configure Oracle Access Manager Webgate for Apache on Linux.

##Module Description

Oracle Access Manager Webgate has a really crappy installation process, this module automates the installation and configuration process. This is what it does:

  • Download the installation package from a remore repository (http/https)
  • Create a temp dir where to extract the required content
  • Ensure the necessary dependencies are installed
  • Copy the system libs requirered by the install (please refer to:
  • Copy the OAM certificates
  • Run the installa process
  • Run the configuration process


###What oracle_webgate affects Notes:

  • The (crappy) Oracle installer requires a copy of and in a specified directory to work properly. The module will take care of copying those files if they are available
  • The software will be installed in the default installation path, i.e. /opt/netpoint/access, this cannot be changed
  • This module will install libstc++.i686 and libstc++.x86_64 on 64 bit systems. Puppet might fail because of multilib if a libstc++.i686 version newer than the libstc++.x86_64 already installed is available (see

###Setup Requirements

Before you start, you need:

  • a working OAM server
  • OAM Certificates copied either on your puppet server on available in hiera
  • OAM Webgate installation ZIP file available on a http/https repository

###Beginning with oracle_webgate

The very basic steps needed for a user to get the module up and running.

  class { 'oracle_webgate':
    serverId        => 'oamServerId',
    hostname        => '',
    webgateId       => 'thisServer',
    port            => '5575',
    password        => 'password',
    passphrase      => 'passphrase',
    remoteRepo      => '',
    installPackage  => '',

This is a full example with bundle patch for Apache 2.2.

  class { 'oracle_webgate':
    serverId        => 'oamServerId',
    hostname        => '',
    webgateId       => 'thisServer',
    port            => '5575',
    password        => 'password',
    passphrase      => 'passphrase',
    remoteRepo      => '',
    installPackage  => '',
    patchPackage    => '',
    patchVersion    => '13',

###Removing oracle_webgate

To fully remove the Oracle Webgate just include the class oracle_webgate:uninstall.


The module does not require any special configuration besides what just showed. If you are using puppet 3.0+ you can take the most out of the hiera integration installing the hiera-file backend. An example might shade some light:

  • Leave the oracle_webgate::* variable undefined

  • Create a hiera structure like the following:

  • Hiera searches for a file called oracle_webgate.d/oracle_webgate::certFile in your hiera data folder providing the file content as content for the variable

    The outcome is... the file is copied on the client!




Here, list the classes, types, providers, facts, etc contained in your module. This section should include all of the under-the-hood workings of your module so people know what the module is touching on their system but don't need to mess with things. (We are working on automating this section!)


This module has been tested on:

  • RedHat 7 64 bit + OAM Webgate for Apache 2.4
  • RedHat 6 64 bit + OAM Webgate for Apache 2.2

It should work also on:

  • 32 bits RedHat systems with Apache 2.2
