Description

dconf is a Puppet module that installs and manages dconf and associated system settings.

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 may be submitted to our bug tracker.

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.
  • If used independently, all SIMP-managed security subsystems are disabled by default and must be explicitly opted into by administrators. See simp_options for more detail.

Setup

To use the module with, just include the class:

include 'dconf'

Usage

Configuring custom rules

You can configure custom dconf settings using the dconf::settings defined type.


Any settings that are configured using this code will automatically be locked

to prevent users from modifying them!

Using puppet

dconf::settings { 'automount_lockdowns':
  settings_hash => {
    'org/gnome/desktop/media-handling' => {
      'automount'      => { 'value' => false, 'lock' => false } # allow users to change this one
      'automount-open' => { 'value' => false }
    }
  }
}

Using hiera

---
dconf::user_settings:
  settings_hash:
    org/gnome/desktop/media-handling:
      automount:
        value: false
        lock: false # allow users to change this one
      automount-open:
        value: false

Configuring custom profiles

You can set up a custom dconf profile as follows:

Using puppet

dconf::profile { 'my_profile':
  entries => {
    'user' => {
      'type' => 'user',
      'order' => 1
    },
    'system' => {
      'type' => 'system',
      'order' => 10
    }
  }

Globally With hiera

---
dconf::user_profile:
  my_user:
    type: user
    order: 0
  my_system:
    type: system
    order: 10
