kitchen-ohai Cookbook

Cookbook Version Build Status

Overrides ohai attributes in your kitchen-tests. This should not be used in a production environment.


This cookbook allows you to override ohai attributes in a test-kitchen context: 1. Include kitchen-ohai in your suite runlist. 2. Declare the ohai values in the kitchen_ohai.values attributes in your suite.

Here is an example of .kitchen.yml file overriding os and platform ohai with insane values:


driver: name: vagrant

platforms: - name: centos-7.2

suites: - name: default run_list: - recipe[kitchen-ohai] - recipe[my_cookbook::my_recipe] attributes: kitchen_ohai: values: platform: linux platform_version: 42 os: windows ```

In some cases, you might want to include some attributes files before overriding Ohai attributes. You just need to declare these attributes files as dependencies:


driver: name: vagrant

platforms: - name: windows2012r2

suites: - name: default run_list: - recipe[kitchen-ohai] - recipe[my_cookbook::my_recipe] attributes: kitchen_ohai: dependencies: - my_cookbook::my_attribute_file values: my_ohai: overriden_value ```


This cookbooks exposes 2 attributes: * kitchen_ohai.dependencies - List of attributes file that must be included before overriding ohai - default []. * kitchen_ohai.values - Map of ohais attribute to override - default {}.
