ghoneycutt/types — version 1.13.0 Jan 3rd 2019

ghoneycutt/types

===

Puppet module to manage default types through hashes in Hiera with the create_resources() function. This module adds validation and helper functions, such as ensuring directories. Without specifying any hashes, this module will take no action.

To use, simply include ::types and start specifying hashes of types in Hiera as shown below.

You can add any of the supported options for the types in this module. Please see the Puppet Labs Type Reference for more information.

Build Status

===

Compatibility

This module supports Puppet v3 >= 3.2.0 (with and without the future parser) and Puppet v4 with Ruby versions 1.8.7, 1.9.3, 2.0.0, 2.1.0 and 2.3.1. Please see .travis.yml for the full matrix.

===

Dependencies

This module depends on puppetlabs/stdlib and ghoneycutt/common.

Parameters

crons

Hash of resource type cron.

  • Default: undef

crons_hiera_merge

Boolean to control merges of all found instances of types::crons in Hiera. This is useful for specifying cron resources at different levels of the hierarchy and having them all included in the catalog.

This will default to 'true' in future versions.

  • Default: false

execs

Hash of resource type exec.

  • Default: undef

execs_hiera_merge

Boolean to control merges of all found instances of types::execs in Hiera. This is useful for specifying exec resources at different levels of the hierarchy and having them all included in the catalog.

This will default to 'true' in future versions.

  • Default: false

file_lines

Hash of resource type file_line.

  • Default: undef

file_lines_hiera_merge

Boolean to control merges of all found instances of types::file_lines in Hiera. This is useful for specifying file_line resources at different levels of the hierarchy and having them all included in the catalog.

This will default to 'true' in future versions.

  • Default: true

files

Hash of resource type file.

  • Default: undef

files_hiera_merge

Boolean to control merges of all found instances of types::files in Hiera. This is useful for specifying file resources at different levels of the hierarchy and having them all included in the catalog.

This will default to 'true' in future versions.

  • Default: false

mounts

Hash of resource type mount.

  • Default: undef

mounts_hiera_merge

Boolean to control merges of all found instances of types::mounts in Hiera. This is useful for specifying mount resources at different levels of the hierarchy and having them all included in the catalog.

This will default to 'true' in future versions.

  • Default: false

packages

Hash of resource type package.

  • Default: undef

packages_hiera_merge

Boolean to control merges of all found instances of types::packages in Hiera. This is useful for specifying package resources at different levels of the hierarchy and having them all included in the catalog.

  • Default: true

selbooleans

Hash of resource type selboolean.

  • Default: undef

selbooleans_hiera_merge

Boolean to control merges of all found instances of types::selboolean in Hiera. This is useful for specifying selboolean resources at different levels of the hierarchy and having them all included in the catalog.

  • Default: true

services

Hash of resource type service.

  • Default: undef

services_hiera_merge

Boolean to control merges of all found instances of types::services in Hiera. This is useful for specifying file resources at different levels of the hierarchy and having them all included in the catalog.

  • Default: true
