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.

Chef SSH

Description

Provides 2 LWRPs to manage system-wide and per-user ssh_config and known_host files.

Usage

When using SSH with Chef deployments, it's crucial to not get any prompts for input. Adding entries to known_hosts files and better managing your per-connection configuration can help with this.

Resources and Providers

known_hosts

Actions

<table> <thead> <tr> <th>Action</th><th>Description</th><th>Default</th> </tr> </thead> <tbody> <tr> <td>add</td> <td>Adds an entry for the given host to a known_hosts file</td> <td>Yes</td> </tr> <tr> <td>remove</td> <td>Removes entries for a host from a known_hosts file</td> <td> </td> </tbody> </table>

Attributes

<table> <thead> <tr> <th>Attribute</th><th>Description</th><th>Default Value</th> </tr> </thead> <tbody> <tr> <td>host</td> <td> <b>Name attribute:</b> the FQDN for a host to add to a known_hosts file </td> <td><code>nil</code></td> </tr> <tr> <td>hashed</td> <td>A Boolean indicating if SSH is configured to use a hashed known_hosts file. </td> <td><code>true</code></td> </tr> <tr> <td>key</td> <td>A full line to add to the file, instead of performing a lookup for the host. </td> <td><code>nil</code></td> </tr> <tr> <td>user</td> <td>A username to add the known_hosts entry for. If unspecified, the known_host will be added system-wide. <b>Note:</b> if specified, the user must already exist. </td> <td><code>nil</code></td> </tr> <tr> <td>path</td> <td>A full path to a known_hosts file. If used with the user attribute, this will take precedence over the path to a user's file, but the file will be created (if necessary) as that user. </td> <td><code>nil</code></td> </tr> </tbody> </table>

Example

ssh_known_hosts "github.com" do
  hashed true
  user 'webapp'
end

config

Actions

<table> <thead> <tr> <th>Action</th><th>Description</th><th>Default</th> </tr> </thead> <tbody> <tr> <td>add</td> <td>Adds an entry for the given host to a ssh_config file</td> <td>Yes</td> </tr> <tr> <td>remove</td> <td>Removes entries for a host from a ssh_config file</td> <td> </td> </tbody> </table>

Attributes

<table> <thead> <tr> <th>Attribute</th><th>Description</th><th>Default Value</th> </tr> </thead> <tbody> <tr> <td>host</td> <td> <b>Name attribute:</b> the string to match when connecting to a host. This can be an IP, FQDN (github.com), or contain wildcards (*.prod.corp) </td> <td><code>nil</code></td> </tr> <tr> <td>options</td> <td>A hash containing the key-values to write for the host in </td> <td><code>true</code></td> </tr> <tr> <td>user</td> <td>A username to add the ssh_config entry for. If unspecified, the known_host will be added system-wide. <b>Note:</b> if specified, the user must already exist. </td> <td><code>nil</code></td> </tr> <tr> <td>path</td> <td>A full path to a known_hosts file. If used with the user attribute, this will take precedence over the path to a user's file, but the file will be created (if necessary) as that user. </td> <td><code>nil</code></td> </tr> </tbody> </table>

Example

ssh_config "github.com" do
  options 'User' => 'git', 'IdentityFile' => '/var/apps/github_deploy_key'
  user 'webapp'
end
