This cdist type allows you to create or remove directories on the target.
'present' or 'absent', defaults to 'present'
Group to chgrp to.
Unix permissions, suitable for chmod.
User to chown to.
Whether to create parents as well (mkdir -p behaviour). Warning: all intermediate directory permissions default to whatever mkdir -p does.
Usually this means root:root, 0700.
If supplied the chgrp and chown call will run recursively. This does not influence the behaviour of chmod.
- chgrp <group>
Changed group membership
- chown <owner>
- chmod <mode>
Empty directory was created
Directory exists, but state is absent, directory will be removed by generated code.
- remove non directory
Something other than a directory with the same name exists and was removed prior to create.
# A silly example __install_directory /tmp/foobar # Remove a directory __install_directory /tmp/foobar --state absent # Ensure /etc exists correctly __install_directory /etc --owner root --group root --mode 0755 # Create nfs service directory, including parents __install_directory /home/services/nfs --parents # Change permissions recursively __install_directory /home/services --recursive --owner root --group root # Setup a temp directory __install_directory /local --mode 1777 # Take it all __install_directory /home/services/kvm --recursive --parents \ --owner root --group root --mode 0755 --state present
