puppet-crowd

Puppet Forge Build Status

Overview

This Puppet module is used to install and configure the crowd application. Atlassian Crowd is a Single Sign-On (SSO) and Identity Management service. https://www.atlassian.com/software/crowd/overview

This module was forked from https://github.com/actionjack/puppet-crowd, which appears to be dormant.

  • Manages the installation of Atlassian Crowd via compressed archive
  • Manages Crowd init script and service
  • Manages user
  • Manages Crowd's Java settings and initial database settings

After installation, you should access Crowd in your browser. The default port is '8095'. Unfortunately, you'll need to step through the installation wizard, providing a license key and some basic configuration.

Prerequisites

Current dependencies are:

  • puppetlabs/stdlib
  • puppet/archive

A Java installation is also required. puppetlabs/java is recommended.

Usage

Examples

Defaults:

class { 'crowd': }

Using PostgreSQL database:

class { 'crowd':
  db           => 'postgres',
  dbuser       => 'crowd',
  dbserver     => 'localhost',
  iddb         => 'postgres',
  iddbuser     => 'crowdid',
  iddbpassword => 'secret',
  iddbserver   => 'localhost',
}

Custom Installation:

class { 'crowd':
  installdir   => '/srv/crowd',
  homedir      => '/srv/local/crowd',
  java_home    => '/usr/java/latest',
  download_url => 'http://mirrors.example.com/atlassian/crowd',
  mysql_driver => 'http://mirrors.example.com/mysql/mysql-connector/mysql-connector-java-5.1.36.jar',

Will provide an external fact called crowd_version with the installed Crowd version.

Note: This installs to Facter's system-wide external facts directory (facts.d - see the facter_dir parameter). A better solution to tracking the installed version is needed that can work with a dynamic install path.

create_facter_dir

stop_command

Default: service crowd stop && sleep 15

The command to execute prior to upgrading. This should stop any running Crowd instance. This is executed after downloading the specified version and before extracting it to install it.

This requires crowd::facts_ensure = true.
