NAME cdist-type__directory - Manage a directory
DESCRIPTION This cdist type allows you to create or remove directories on the target.
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
