Usage

class { 'pipelines::agent':
  access_token => Sensitive('super_long_access_token'),
  secret_key   => Sensitive('super_secret_key'),
  download_url => 'https://pfa.example.com/download/client',
  start_agent  => true,
  data_dir     => '/home/distelli/data',
  install_dir  => '/home/distelli/bin',
  environments => ['production', 'staging', 'development'],
  version      => '3.68.0',
}

access_token and secret_key (required)

These are the only required parameters. You can obtain these credentials in the Pipelines interface under Settings > Agent.

You will likely want to use Hiera eyaml or some other form of encryption so that you don't have to put your credentials in your codebase in plain text.

download_url (required for on-premise installs)

If you have an on-premise installation of pipelines, you are required to specify a download URL to install from so that the agent which is downloaded has the proper endpoints embedded within it.

start_agent (optional)

You can specify the start_agent => false parameter if you only want the distelli binary to be installed.

data_dir (optional)

By default, the agent stores all data under the /distelli or %SystemDrive%\Distelli.yml directory on Windows. You can specify a different directory with the data_dir option. This option is useful if:

  • You want to run multiple agents on the same host.
  • You want to restrict the permissions of the distelli user.

install_dir (optional)

By default the executable is installed in /usr/local/bin or %ProgramFiles%\Distelli on Windows. You can specify a different install directory with the install_dir option.

environments (optional)

This is a list of PfA environments to "join" when the agent starts.

version (not recommended)

If you want to "pin" a particular verson of the agent you can use this option, although it is not recommended since not all pipeline products support multiple concurrent agent versions.
