USAGE - Basic management

  • Enable auditing without without making changes on existing profile configuration files

      class { 'profile':
        audit_only => true
  • Use custom sources for /etc/profile

      class { 'profile':
        source => [ "puppet:///modules/example42/profile/profile.conf-${hostname}" , "puppet:///modules/example42/profile/profile.conf" ], 
  • Place a custom script (using source) in /etc/profile.d/ This creates the (executable) file: /etc/profile.d/

      profile::script { 'java':
        source => 'puppet:///modules/example42/profile/',
  • Place a custom script (using content) in /etc/profile.d/

      profile::script { 'java':
        content => template('/example42/profile/'),
  • Use custom source directory for the whole /etc/profile.d dir

      class { 'profile':
        source_dir       => 'puppet:///modules/example42/profile/conf/',
        source_dir_purge => false, # Set to true to purge any existing file not present in $source_dir
  • Use custom template for /etc/profile. Note that template and source arguments are alternative.

      class { 'profile':
        template => 'example42/profile/profile.conf.erb',
  • Automatically include a custom subclass

      class { 'profile':
        my_class => 'example42::my_profile',
