NAME

cdist-type__directory - Manage a directory

DESCRIPTION

This cdist type allows you to create or remove directories on the target.

REQUIRED PARAMETERS

None.

OPTIONAL PARAMETERS

state
'present' or 'absent', defaults to 'present'
group
Group to chgrp to.
mode
Unix permissions, suitable for chmod.
owner
User to chown to.

BOOLEAN PARAMETERS

parents
Whether to create parents as well (mkdir -p behaviour). Warning: all intermediate directory permissions default to whatever mkdir -p does.
 
Usually this means root:root, 0700.
recursive
If supplied the chgrp and chown call will run recursively. This does not influence the behaviour of chmod.

MESSAGES

chgrp <group>
Changed group membership
chown <owner>
Changed owner
chmod <mode>
Changed mode
create
Empty directory was created
remove
Directory exists, but state is absent, directory will be removed by generated code.
remove non directory
Something other than a directory with the same name exists and was removed prior to create.

EXAMPLES

 
# A silly example
__directory /tmp/foobar
# Remove a directory __directory /tmp/foobar --state absent
# Ensure /etc exists correctly __directory /etc --owner root --group root --mode 0755
# Create nfs service directory, including parents __directory /home/services/nfs --parents
# Change permissions recursively __directory /home/services --recursive --owner root --group root
# Setup a temp directory __directory /local --mode 1777
# Take it all __directory /home/services/kvm --recursive --parents \ --owner root --group root --mode 0755 --state present
