FAQ
Based on your description, I would suggest the following:

Let's take tomcat as a specific example.
Assumption: You have a tomcat module that can be configured with parameters.

Here is the suggestion: Add a hostname level to your heirarchy.

OK, so now for node hostx.example.org, you want this to be a tomcat server. All you need do is put the appropriate parameters into hostx.example.org.yaml

I am still a hiera n00b myself, so I am not totally sure exactly how to do this, but I am working on it.

Subject: Re: [Puppet Users] Not custom facts, but variables?

sure, to be specific,


we have environments, dev, test, qa, stage, and prod. That part I got with your help on my last post. Thank you.


Within these environments, we have applications. We only have a few apps. So let's say some machines are oracle db machines, some are tomcat, and some are apache.


I have yaml files for each, oracledb.yaml, tomcat.yaml, apache.yaml. Each of these yaml files contain some key value pair that is specific to that environment.


So when some machine is provisioned, I want to say this machine is a tomcat machine, and I don't care what environment it since I will let the agent conf figure that out. That way I can one puppet module for tomcat, but different values per environment.


I hope that makes sense, and if my approach is completely wrong, I'm open to hear some alternatives. Thanks again everyone.
