Puppet Ejabberd Module

Build Status

This is an ejabberd module for installing and configuring ejabberd. It has been tested on CentOS 6 with ejabberd 2.1.13.


Use the defaults:

include ejabberd

Or to configure:

class { 'ejabberd':
    config_source   => 'puppet:///files/my/ejabberd.cfg',
    package_ensure  => 'installed',
    package_name    => 'ejabberd',
    service_reload  => true,

By default, when the config file changes the ACLs will be reloaded by running ejabberdctl load_config. For this to work, the mod_admin_extra module must be installed. To add new hosts, ejabberd must be restarted manually. Alternatively, you can tell the module to restart ejabberd instead of doing a reload by setting service_reload => false.



Installs a module from the contrib repository. Note that you will also need to add the module to your ejabberd.cfg config file to enable it.

ejabberd::contrib::module { 'mod_rest': }



This provider can be used to create users:

ejabberd_user { 'myusername':
    host        => 'localhost',
    password    => 'mypassword'
