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.

iptables (26) Versions 0.11.0

Installs the iptables daemon and provides a LWRP for managing rules

cookbook 'iptables', '= 0.11.0'
cookbook 'iptables', '= 0.11.0', :supermarket
knife cookbook site install iptables
knife cookbook site download iptables


Sets up iptables to use a script to maintain firewall rules. However this cookbook may be deprecated or heavily modified in favor of the general firewall cookbook, see Roadmap.


  • [COOK-652] - create a firewall cookbook
  • [COOK-688] - create iptables providers for all resources



  • Ubuntu/Debian
  • RHEL/CentOS



The default recipe will install iptables and provides a perl script (installed in /usr/sbin/rebuild-iptables) to manage rebuilding firewall rules from files dropped off in /etc/iptables.d.


See Roadmap for plans to replace the definition with LWRPs.


The definition drops off a template in /etc/iptables.d after the name parameter. The rule will get added to the local system firewall through notifying the rebuild-iptables script. See Examples below.


Ensure that the system is set up to use the definition and rebuild script with recipe[iptables]. Then create templates with the firewall rules in the cookbook where the definition will be used. See Examples.


To enable port 80, e.g. in an httpd cookbook, create the following template:

# Port 80 for http
-A FWR -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT

This would go in the cookbook, httpd/templates/default/port_http.erb. Then to use it in recipe[httpd]:

iptables_rule "http"
