cdist-type__directory - Manage a directory
This cdist type allows you to create or remove directories on the target.
- 'present' or 'absent', defaults to 'present'
- Group to chgrp to.
- Unix permissions, suitable for chmod.
- User to chown to.
- Whether to create parents as well (mkdir -p behaviour).
Warning: all intermediate directory permissions default to whatever mkdir
Usually this means root:root, 0700.
- If supplied the chgrp and chown call will run recursively.
This does not influence the behaviour of chmod.
- chgrp <group>
- Changed group membership
- chown <owner>
- Changed owner
- chmod <mode>
- Changed mode
- Empty directory was created
- 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.
# A silly example
# 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
