yum-webtatic Cookbook

It allows attribute manipulation of webtatic, webtatic-debuginfo, webtatic-source, webtatic-archive, webtatic-archive-debuginfo, webtatic-archive-source webtatic-testing, webtatic-testing-debuginfo, and webtatic-testing-source.

  • default - Walks through node attributes and feeds a yum_resource parameters. The following is an example a resource generated by the recipe during compilation.
  yum_repository 'webtatic' do
    mirrorlist '$basearch/mirrorlist_https'
    description 'Webtatic Repository EL7 - $basearch'
    enabled true
    gpgcheck true
    gpgkey ''

Usage Example

To disable the webtatic repository through a Role or Environment definition

  :yum => {
    :webtatic => {
      :enabled => {

Uncommonly used repositoryids are not managed by default. This is speeds up integration testing pipelines by avoiding yum-cache builds that nobody cares about. To enable the webtatic-testing repository with a wrapper cookbook, place the following in a recipe:

node.default['yum']['webtatic-testing']['enabled'] = true
node.default['yum']['webtatic-testing']['managed'] = true
include_recipe 'yum-webtatic'

More Examples

Point the webtatic repositories at an internally hosted server.

node.default['yum']['webtatic']['enabled'] = true
node.default['yum']['webtatic']['baseurl'] = ''
node.default['yum']['webtatic']['sslverify'] = false

include_recipe 'yum-webtatic'

  • Use http on EL5 versions


  • Use https on all EL versions
  • Disable sslverify on EL5 as it's ciphers are too out of date


  • Switch to failover = priority and use mirrorlist rewrite


  • Remove mirrorlist default if baseurl has been supplied
  • Set RHEL/CentOS/etc 7 to use https urls
  • Add test-kitchen serverspec and bats test
  • Add Chefspec spec


  • Switch from not_if to conditional resource declaration for consistency
  • Include yum-epel in EL7 only if at least one webtatic repository is managed


  • Added recipe for EL5/EL6/EL7 repositories
