This type controls systemd services to define a state of the service, or an action like reloading or restarting. It is useful to reload a service after configuration applied or shutdown one service.
The activation or deactivation is out of scope. Look for the cdist-type__systemd_util(7) type instead.
String which will used as name instead of the object id.
The state which the service should be in:
Service should run (default)
Service should be stopped
Executes an action on on the service. It will only execute it if the service keeps the state running. There are following actions, where:
Reloads the service
Restarts the service
Only execute the action if at minimum one required type outputs a message to $__messages_out. Through this, the action should only executed if a dependency did something. The action will not executed if no dependencies given.
Started the service
Stopped the service
Restarted the service
Reloaded the service
Aborts in following cases:
systemd or the service does not exist
# service must run __systemd_service nginx # service must stopped __systemd_service sshd \ --state stopped # restart the service __systemd_service apache2 \ --action restart # makes sure the service exist with an alternative name __systemd_service foo \ --name sshd # reload the service for a modified configuration file # only reloads the service if the file really changed require="__file/etc/foo.conf" __systemd_service foo \ --action reload --if-required
