4.9 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.

mighq/ipset — version 0.7.0 Aug 11th 2020



Linux ipset management by puppet.

Roughly based on thias/ipset module.

  • checks for current ipset state, before doing any changes to it
  • applies ipset every time it drifts from target state, not only on config file change
  • handles type changes
  • autostart support for rhel-6 and rhel-7 family (upstart, systemd)


direct content

Resource accepts ipset content as list of entries, one entry per line ("\n" separated). Can be generated by ERB template, or filled in directly from the manifest.

ipset { 'foo':
  ensure => present,
  set    => "\n5.6.7.8",
  type   => 'hash:ip',

content as array

Set can be filled from array data structure. Typically passed from Hiera.

ipset { 'foo':
  ensure => present,
  set    => ['', ''],
  type   => 'hash:ip',

local file

Set will be filled in from the file present on the target computer's filesystem.

file { '/tmp/bar_set_content':
  ensure  => present,
  content => "\n5.6.7.8/32"
ipset { 'bar':
  ensure => present,
  set    => 'file:///tmp/bar_set_content',
  type   => 'hash:net',

puppet master file

Content is passed from the file available in puppet master's definitions.

ipset { 'baz':
  ensure => present,
  set    => 'puppet:///modules/foo/bar.ipset',
