cdist-type__systemd_unit - Man Page

Install a systemd unit

Description

This type manages systemd units in /etc/systemd/system/. It can install, enable and start a systemd unit. This is particularly useful on systems which take advantage of systemd heavily (e.g., CoreOS). For more information about systemd units, see SYSTEMD.UNIT(5).

Required Parameters

None.

Optional Parameters

enablement-state

'enabled', 'disabled' or 'masked', where:

enabled

enables the unit

disabled

disables the unit

masked

masks the unit

source

Path to the config file. If source is '-' (dash), take what was written to stdin as the config file content.

state

'present' or 'absent', defaults to 'present' where:

present

the unit (or its mask) is installed

absent

The unit is stopped, disabled and uninstalled. If the unit was masked, the mask is removed.

Boolean Parameters

restart

Start the unit if it was inactive. Restart the unit if the unit file changed. Stop the unit if new enablement-state is masked.

Messages

None.
