4.8 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.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

fheinle/ipa — version 0.1.0 Mar 3rd 2018


This module provides limited support for controlling FreeIPA with Puppet.

Currently, only requesting SSL certificates from the CA is implemented.


To request an SSL certificate:

ipa::sslcert { 'sometitle':
  fname   => "/etc/apache2/ssl/${facts['::fqdn']}",
  domain  => $facts['::fqdn'],
  service => 'http',
  • fname: File name for certificate and private key, without file extension
  • domain: only one FQDN is allowed here
  • service: the kerberos principal to use for the SSL certificate

This will request the given certificate from FreeIPA's CA and set up certmonger to monitor the certificate for expiration etc. The given principal must already exist in FreeIPA.
