NAME

cdist-type__consul_agent - Manage the consul agent

DESCRIPTION

Configure and manage the consul agent.

REQUIRED PARAMETERS

None.

OPTIONAL PARAMETERS

acl-datacenter
only used by servers. This designates the datacenter which is authoritative for ACL information.
acl-default-policy
either "allow" or "deny"; defaults to "allow". The default policy controls the behavior of a token when there is no matching rule.
acl-down-policy
either "allow", "deny" or "extend-cache"; "extend-cache" is the default.
acl-master-token
only used for servers in the acl_datacenter. This token will be created with management-level permissions if it does not exist. It allows operators to bootstrap the ACL system with a token ID that is well-known.
acl-token
when provided, the agent will use this token when making requests to the Consul servers.
acl-ttl
used to control Time-To-Live caching of ACLs.
bind-addr
sets the bind address for cluster communication
bootstrap-expect
sets server to expect bootstrap mode
ca-file-source
path to a PEM encoded certificate authority file which will be uploaded and configure using the ca_file config option.
cert-file-source
path to a PEM encoded certificate file which will be uploaded and configure using the cert_file config option.
client-addr
sets the address to bind for client access
datacenter
datacenter of the agent
encrypt
provides the gossip encryption key
group
the primary group for the agent
json-config
path to a partial json config file without leading { and trailing }. If json-config is '-' (dash), take what was written to stdin as the file content.
key-file-source
path to a PEM encoded private key file which will be uploaded and configure using the key_file config option.
node-name
name of this node. Must be unique in the cluster
retry-join
address to attempt joining every retry_interval until at least one join works. Can be specified multiple times.
user
the user to run the agent as
state
if the agent is 'present' or 'absent'. Defaults to 'present'. Currently state=absent is not working due to some dependency issues.

BOOLEAN PARAMETERS

disable-remote-exec
disables support for remote execution. When set to true, the agent will ignore any incoming remote exec requests.
disable-update-check
disables automatic checking for security bulletins and new version releases
leave-on-terminate
gracefully leave cluster on SIGTERM
rejoin-after-leave
rejoin the cluster using the previous state after leaving
server
used to control if an agent is in server or client mode
enable-syslog
enables logging to syslog
verify-incoming
enforce the use of TLS and verify a client's authenticity on incoming connections
verify-outgoing
enforce the use of TLS and verify the peers authenticity on outgoing connections

EXAMPLES

 
# configure as server, bootstrap and rejoin
hostname="$(cat "$__global/explorer/hostname")"
__consul_agent \
   --datacenter dc1 \
   --node-name "${hostname%%.*}" \
   --disable-update-check \
   --server \
   --rejoin-after-leave \
   --bootstrap-expect 3 \
   --retry-join consul-01 \
   --retry-join consul-02 \
   --retry-join consul-03
# configure as server, bootstrap and rejoin with ssl support hostname="$(cat "$__global/explorer/hostname")" __consul_agent \ --datacenter dc1 \ --node-name "${hostname%%.*}" \ --disable-update-check \ --server \ --rejoin-after-leave \ --bootstrap-expect 3 \ --retry-join consul-01 \ --retry-join consul-02 \ --retry-join consul-03 \ --ca-file-source /path/to/ca.pem \ --cert-file-source /path/to/cert.pem \ --key-file-source /path/to/key.pem \ --verify-incoming \ --verify-outgoing
# configure as client and try joining existing cluster __consul_agent \ --datacenter dc1 \ --node-name "${hostname%%.*}" \ --disable-update-check \ --retry-join consul-01 \ --retry-join consul-02 \ --retry-join consul-03
