tohuwabohu/autoconfig — version 1.0.3 Sep 23rd 2014



Puppet module to provide auto-discovery functionality for clients of certain services. At the moment, the module supports only Autoconfiguration for Thunderbird.


Setup the Thunderbird auto-configuration for a given domain

autoconfig::thunderbird { '': }

Enable the domain configuration in your web server by linking to the corresponding file in the configuration directory (e.g. /etc/autoconfig/apache.conf). Make sure the subdomain is pointing to the host where your web server is running.

To use a custom config-v1.1.xml, you can use

autoconfig::thunderbird { '':
  template => 'path/to/custom/template',

Furthermore, you want to notify your web server when the autoconfig web server configuration changes

class { 'autoconfig':
  notify => Service['apache'],


The module has been tested on the following operating systems. Testing and patches for other platforms are welcome.

  • Debian Linux 6.0 (Squeeze)
