Description

This is a module to install and manage FreeRADIUS.

Setup

What freeradius affects

The module manages:

  • Packages needed for installing FreeRADIUS server and utilities.
  • The freeradius service.
  • The "mods-config/files/authorize" file, for user definitions and defaults.

The rest is so far up to you.

Beginning with freeradius

Include the class, and provide a hash of concat::fragment resources for the $users parameter.

Usage

The users are provided to the module as a hash of "concat::fragment" resources. The important bits are the "content" or "source" and "order" parameters.

The "content" or "source" must contain one (or more) user definitions for the radius "mods-config/files/authorize" file, on the FreeRADIUS configuration format.

Order matters in the authorize file. The concat resource will order the fragments according to its defaults, so you should order them using the "order" parameter.

$users = {
  'bob' => {
    content => '"bob" Cleartext-Password := "hello"'
    order   => '101',
  }
}

class { 'freeradius':
  users => $users,
}

Limitations

This module does not yet manage any other config than the "authorize" file.

If you would like to manage anything other than the default configuration of FreeRADIUS, which on Debian and Red Hat covers a number of scenarios, manage these files explicitly, and notify Class['freeradius::service'] on changes.
