4.9 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.

The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) is an IaaS that delivers on-premise, high-performance computing power to run cloud native and enterprise workloads. You can use Puppet to manage your infrastructure and application resources in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. the oci_config module has all of the basic types and providers to manage OCI resources.

The oci_profile module allows an easy way to string all of these resources together.


Most of the Enterprise Modules modules are commercial modules. This one is NOT. It is an Open Source module. You are free to use it any way you like.


The oci_profile::config class contains all the Puppet code to install, create and populate an OCI tenancy This class is an easy way to get started. It contains the following steps:

  • tenants (Define the tenant(s))
  • compartments (define the compartments)
  • identity (Define users groups etc.)
  • key_management (Define all key related objects)
  • budget (Define the budgets)
  • network (Define all netweork related OCI objects)
  • block_storage (Define volumes and volume backups)
  • object_storage (Define buckets)
  • file_storage (Define NFS type file storage)
  • instances (Define all instances)
  • vms (Conveniance class to define VM like objects)

All these stages have a default implementation. This implementation is suitable to get started with. These classed all have parameters you can customize through hiera values. The defaults are specified in the module's data/default.yaml file.

But sometimes this is not enough and you would like to add some extra definitions, you can, for example, add a Puppet class to be executed before the network is done. You can do this by adding the next line to your yaml data:

oci_profile::configuration::before_network:   my_profile::my_extra_class

or after:

oci_profile::configuration::after_network:   my_profile::my_extra_class

If you want to, you can also skip this provided class:

oci_profile::configuration::network:   skip

Or provide your own implementation:

oci_profile::configuration::network:   my_profile::my_own_implementation

This mechanism can be used for all named steps and makes it easy to move from an easy setup with a running standard database to a fully customized setup using a lot of your own classes plugged in.
