Installation & Usage

  1. Install puppet_zulip as a module in your Puppet master's module path.

  2. Get an API bot email & key from zulip [here][]

  3. Update the botemail, key from above. Update thetype (stream or private), , to (Stream name or email to send a private message), & subject (for stream subjects) variables in the file zulip.yaml and then copy the file to /etc/puppet/ or for puppet enterpise '/etc/puppetlabs/puppet'. The zulip_statuses should be an array of statuses to send notifications for and defaults to 'failed'. Specify 'all' to receive notifications from all Puppet runs.

  4. You can also use this by including the class in a manifest, with either parameters or hiera to set the settings. It will create the settings file in the correct place for you.

  5. Enable reports on your master puppet.conf

    report = true
    reports = zulip
  6. Run the Puppet client and sync the report as a plugin

  7. To temporarially disable Zulip notifications add a file named 'zulip_disabled' in the same path as zulip.yaml. (Removing it will re-enable notifications)

    $ touch /etc/puppet/zulip_disabled
