Table of Contents

Description

This module manages the cron packages, service, and /etc/cron.allow.

This is a SIMP module

This module is a component of the System Integrity Management Platform, a compliance-management framework built on Puppet.

If you find any issues, they can be submitted to our JIRA.

This module is optimally designed for use within a larger SIMP ecosystem, but it can be used independently:

  • When included within the SIMP ecosystem, security compliance settings will be managed from the Puppet server.

Setup

What cron affects

  • crond service
  • /etc/cron.deny
  • /etc/cron.allow
  • tmpwatch package (if EL6)

Usage

To use this module, just call the class. This example adds it to a class list in hiera:

---
classes:
  - cron

Users can also be added to /etc/cron.allow with the cron::user defined type, or the cron::users array in hiera. The following example adds a few users to /etc/cron.allow:

cron::users:
  - foo
  - bar

Reference

See REFERENCE.md for details.
