Overview

This module provides functions and facts that are out of scope for stdlib. Some of them are even intrinsically tied to stdlib.

Setup

 % puppet module install puppet-extlib

Usage

Since puppet/extlib version 3, all functions are provided under the extlib namespace. Non namespaced versions were removed in version 5.

All functions are documented in REFERENCE.md

Facts

All facts in this module are namespaced and begin extlib__. Facter 4 users can also find all facts under a single extlib toplevel structured fact.

extlib__puppet_config (or extlib['puppet_config'] when using facter 4)

A fact to expose puppet.conf settings. These are resolved on the agent, (unlike $settings::<setting_name> which is resolved on the puppet master).

The following sections/settings are included.

{
  main => {
    hostpubkey,
    hostprivkey,
    hostcert,
    localcacert,
    ssldir,
    vardir,
    server,
  },
  master => {
    localcacert,
    ssldir,
  }
}

Limitations

Some functions require puppetlabs-stdlib (>= 4.6.0) and all functions are only compatible with Puppet 4.7 and later.

Development
