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.

Wazuh Agent cookbook

These cookbooks install and configure a Wazuh Agent on specified nodes.

Agent is automatically registered in the specified address by using 'agent authd' (['ossec']['registration_address'] and connects with the manager address ['ossec']['address']). You can set this attributes by default on attributes folder or specify it in the 'wazuh_agent role'.


Create a role following the 'wazuh_agent' role structure and specify your desired configuration attributes. Note that address and registration_address are mandatory.

Assign the current role to desired nodes and run chef-client on them.

You can declare desired agent_auth parameters to customize the registration process.

For example:

    "name": "wazuh_agent",
    "description": "Wazuh agent",
    "json_class": "Chef::Role",
    "default_attributes": {
    "override_attributes": {
      "ossec": {
        "registration_address": "",
        "address": "",
        "agent_auth": {
          "name" : "Agent_01", 
          "set_group" : "group_01",
          "agent_ip_by_manager": "true"
    "chef_type": "role",
    "run_list": [
    "env_run_lists": {

Will generate: agent_auth -m -p 1515 -A Agent_01 -G group_01 -i

The agent_auth parameters are the following:

-a  : "auto_negotiate"
-A  : "name"
-m  : "host"
-p  : "port"
-c  : "cipher_list"
-D  : "wazuh_directory"
-d  : "debug_mode" : "true"
-g  : "run_as_group"
-G  : "set_group"
-i  : "agent_ip_by_manager" : "true"
-I  : "agent_ip"
-P  : "password"
-v  : "ca"
-x  : "certificate"
-k  : "key"

You can use any of the quoted attributes, as stated in the previous example. Flags options must be set to "true" or "false".


The attributes folder contains all the default configuration files in order to generate ossec.conf file.

Check 'ossec.conf' documentation to see all configuration sections.



Register agent by using agent authd method. You can declare the desired fields to customize the registration process.
