3.6 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.

  • curl

The module on the Puppet Forge.


Open your preferred console/terminal/bash/shell

puppet module install kaiser-systemupdate --target-dir puppet/modules --debug --verbose

If you want to reinstall it, use the --force argument as well.


In your main site.pp file, simply add.

include systemupdate

Nothing else to do.

To ensure that it runs before any other Classes during provisioning, add it like this:

# @example Dummy code
-> Package['apache2']

Not much else to say here. Have fun.
