Overview

Manages the policykit package

Description

Ensures that the PolicyKit or polkit package is installed and provides a mechanism for managing localauthority configuration files.

Forked

This module was forked from [git://git.sans.ethz.ch/puppet-modules/policykit] in order to update it's functionality and add basic tests.

Usage

To only ensure that the policykit software package is installed. Note that this isn't nessicary when using the policykit::localauthority defined type as including the policykit class is implied.

include policykit

Create a new authority file.

policykit::localauthority { 'Disable suspend':
   identity        => 'unix-user:*',
   action          => 'org.freedesktop.upower.suspend',
   result_active   => 'no',
   result_any      => 'no',
   result_inactive => 'no',
}

To remove an existing authority configuration. Note that all of the params are still required. This is arguably a bug.

policykit::localauthority { 'Disable suspend':
   ensure          => absent,
   identity        => 'unix-user:*',
   action          => 'org.freedesktop.upower.suspend',
   result_active   => 'no',
   result_any      => 'no',
   result_inactive => 'no',
}

Limitations

At present, only support for $::osfamily == 'RedHat' has been implimented. Adding other Linux distrubtions should be trivial. Policykit is not present in releases prior to el6.x.

Tested on

  • el6.x
  • Debian 7.0 (wheezy)
