A library cookbook to provide a resource for modifying user shadow attributes.
- Centos 6.7
- Ubuntu 12.04
- Ubuntu 14.04
The library depends on the
chage binary being installed on the targe system. The
chage binary is part of the
shadow-utils package on RHEL/CentOS and part of the
passwd package on Ubuntu (these packages are usually installed by default).
Place a dependency on the user_shadow cookbook in your cookbook's metadata.rb
Then, in your recipe
# myrecipe.rb user_shadow 'testuser' sp_lstchg '2015-07-01' sp_expire '2030-08-30' sp_min 20 sp_max 60 sp_inact 10 sp_warn 10 end
The user to modify is
testuser. See a full list of parameters and explanation below.
