given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

This module installs Docker Enterprise Edition. Use it instead of a manual install.


Setup Requirements

This module requires that, at a minimum, the Docker EE URL be passed in as a parameter.

Beginning with docker_ee

The very basic steps needed for a user to get the module up and running. This can include setup steps, if necessary, or it can be an example of the most basic use of the module.


class { '::docker_ee':
  docker_ee_url  => '',



Public classes

  • docker_ee: Main class, includes all other classes.

Private classes

  • docker_ee::yum_memcache: Reset the YUM memchache to reflect the newly added repository.
  • docker_ee::install: Installs the Docker Enterprise Edition package.


The following parameters are available in the ::docker_ee class



Data type: Stdlib::Httpurl

The Docker EE URL you will be assigned by the vendor.



Data Type: Numeric

The version of the RedHat OS you are using.


This currently only works for RedHat.
