Documentation

meltwater/incron — version 0.3.1 Sep 8th 2014

incron

This incron module allows you to define incron jobs just like you would cronjobs using a resource type.

Package installation is possible by including the incron class, but not mandatory. This is to accomodate the various ways organisations manage installing packages.

As opposed to the cron resource type, incron resource names must be unique system wide.

Due to incrons inability to handle comments, it will log the following error when changes are made to an incrontab file. This error is harmless however: access denied on # - events will be discarded silently

incron_allowuser and incron_denyuser allow for incron.allow/deny file management.

Usage Example

include incron # Not needed if the package was installed through other means.

incron {'test1':
  user    => 'wleese',
  command => 'touch /tmp/1',
  path    => '/home/wleese/',
  mask    => ['IN_CREATE'],
}

# Optional, only if you need to manage allowed users
incron_allowuser { 'wleese':
  ensure => present,
}

Valid values for the mask parameter are:

IN_ACCESS
IN_MODIFY
IN_ATTRIB
IN_CLOSE_WRITE
IN_CLOSE_NOWRITE
IN_OPEN
IN_MOVED_FROM
IN_MOVED_TO
IN_CREATE
IN_DELETE
IN_DELETE_SELF
IN_UNMOUNT
IN_Q_OVERFLOW
IN_IGNORED
IN_CLOSE
IN_MOVE
IN_ISDIR
IN_ONESHOT
IN_ALL_EVENT
IN_NO_LOOP

Support

If you recieve the error "Error: Could not find a suitable provider for incron", please install the incron package or add 'include incron' to your puppet code.

Feel free to suggest improvements!
