This module provides two functions designed to assist with importing data that represents Puppet resource types from external sources (or Hiera). This can be specifically useful when trying to import application instance declarations, which are required to specify the nodes parameter, which must be an array of Node resource references.
Accepts a string parameter. Transforms it to a resource reference if the string can be represented as a resource.
Accepts either a String, Array, or Hash parameter. Recursively transforms all transformable String sub-elements into resource type representations.
Convert a single string to a resource reference:
$res = "Notify[foo]".to_resource
Convert an array of strings to a resource reference:
$res_arr = ["Notify[foo]", "Anchor[bar]"].resolve_resources
Look up a value and transform any valid string-form resource references it contains to Resource type represenations:
$app_instances = lookup("applications").resolve_resources
