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.

netgroup Cookbook

This cookbook provides the netgroup LWRP. It will allow you to manage netgroups in /etc/netgroup file






The netgroup resource has two attributes users and groups. Each attribute is exepcting an array of either users or groups. The default value
is an empty list so neither attribute is required.

The three actions that can be invoked are

:manage : allows chef to manage the resource so it can be referenced in other recipes.

:create : create the netgroup if it does not exist. If it does it exist bring it into complaince
:remove : remove the netgroup.

Example usage

include_recipe 'netgroup'

netgroup 'SYSADMIN' do
users ['user1','user2']
action :create

netgroup 'SUDOROOT' do
users ['user3']
groups ['SYSADMIN']
action :create

You can also adjust these values in recipes that are after the current resource has been loaded.

For example. Say the SYSADMIN netgroup resource was loaded in recipe 'A'. You can add users to this netgroup in
recipe 'B' by including the following code.

include_recipe 'A'

Append the users netgroup

netgroup_resource = resources(:netgroup => "SYSADMIN")
netgroup_resource.users netgroup_resource.users + ['rstuart']

Overwrite the groups in the SYSADMIN negroup resource

netgroup_resource = resources(:netgroup => "SYSADMIN")
netgroup_resource.groups ['NETGROUP1']
