Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

IE Cookbook

Cookbook Version Build Status GitHub Issues

Configures Internet Explorer to aid tools like Selenium.

The following recipes are available for configuring Internet Explorer:

A ie_version method is also available to retrieve the exact version of Internet Explorer installed.

Tested against IE 11 on Windows Server 2012 R2.

Requirements

  • Chef 11.6.0 or higher (includes a built-in registry_key resource)

Platforms

  • Windows

Usage

See ie_test cookbook for examples. Note that there is no default recipe.

A library method ie_version is provided to retrieve the IE version installed:

v = ie_version

Tip: use allow_any_instance_of to stub ie_version method when testing with rspec:

allow_any_instance_of(Chef::Recipe).to receive(:ie_version).and_return('11.0.0.0')

ie::enhanced_security_configuration

Enable/Disable Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration.

Note this sets HKEY_CURRENT_USER keys, so it configures only the user that the chef-client runs as.

Attributes

  • node['ie']['enhanced_security_configuration'] - Defaults to true

Example

Disable enhanced security configuration:

node.set['ie']['enhanced_security_configuration'] = false
include_recipe 'ie::enhanced_security_configuration'

ie::feature_bfcache

Enable/Disable IE Feature Back-Forward Cache. Allows drivers to maintain a connection to IE.

Attributes

  • node['ie']['feature_bfcache'] - Defaults to false

Example

Enable feature_bfcache:

node.set['ie']['feature_bfcache'] = true
include_recipe 'ie::feature_bfcache'

ie::security_zones

Configure IE Security Zones (REG_DWORD types only); Local Home, Internet, Local Internet, Trusted Sites, and Restricted Sites. See Zones section in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/182569 for a complete listing of security zone settings.

A setting of zero sets a specific action as permitted, a setting of one causes a prompt to appear, and a setting of three prohibits the specific action.

Note this sets HKEY_CURRENT_USER keys, so it configures only the user that the chef-client runs as.

Attributes

  • node['ie']['zone']['local_home'] - Configure local home zone. Defaults to {}.
  • node['ie']['zone']['internet'] - Configure internet zone. Defaults to { '2500' => 0 } (Enable Protected Mode).
  • node['ie']['zone']['local_internet'] - Configure local internet zone. Defaults { '2500' => 0 } (Enable Protected Mode).
  • node['ie']['zone']['trusted_sites'] - Configure trusted sites zone. Defaults to { '2500' => 0 } (Enable Protected Mode).
  • node['ie']['zone']['restricted_sites'] - Configure restricted sites zone. Defaults to { '2500' => 0 } (Enable Protected Mode).

Example

Enable both protected mode and javascript for internet zone:

node.set['ie']['zone']['internet'] = { '2500' => 0, '1400' => 0 }
include_recipe 'ie::security_zones'
