given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

The netplan module manages and applies netplan configuration.


  • Puppet >= 4.0
  • puppetlabs/stdlib
  • puppetlabs/concat


Example with include / Hiera

To use the module with Hiera, you can include the netplan class in your Puppet code:

include netplan

Then, define the netplan configuration in your Hiera YAML file:

netplan::version: 2
netplan::renderer: networkd
netplan::purge_config: true
      dhcp4: yes
        search: [foo.local, bar.local]
        addresses: [,]
        - to:

Example using class

Alternatively, you can use the netplan class directly in your Puppet code:

  class { 'netplan':
    config_file   => '/etc/netplan/01-custom.yaml',
    ethernets     => {
      'ens5' => {
        'dhcp4' => false
    bridges       => {
       'br0' => {
          'dhcp4' => true,
          'interfaces' => [ens5]
    netplan_apply => true,

Open vSwitch

The external_ids and other_config settings in the openvswitch property allow you to pass arbitrary configurations directly to Open vSwitch. To achieve this, you must use the configuration as a string and pay attention to proper indentation.


Suppose you want to configure Open vSwitch as follows:

          iface-id: mylocaliface
          disable-in-band: false

To pass this configuration as a string in your Hiera file, follow this format:

        external_ids: |-1
                   iface-id: mylocaliface
        other_config: |-1
                   disable-in-band: false

Ensure that you maintain the correct indentation while providing the configuration as a string to ensure proper parsing by netplan.


For detailed information about each parameter, refer to the Netplan Documentation. The documentation for this module is based on the Netplan official reference.
