(either main servers or forwarders) that uses the Splunk REST API.
This API needs some authentication information, and I'd like that to be
configurable per-host (ie per host that puppet agent runs on).
Is there a standard way to do this? Should I drop a new file in to
/etc/puppet/splunk.conf (or similar) with the config parameters I want to
use, or even better, is there a nice well defined way to do this through a
I've thought about setting a global parameter, I have two classes;
'splunk-monitor' and 'splunk-user'. Planning to make these both inherit
from a common class 'Puppet::Provider::Splunk' with some common utilities
like REST HTTP things - I copied this approach from the package providers.
If I were to set global parameters, would I need to define it like so:
parameter => blah
the_same_parameter_again => blah
.. or is there a way to define global configuration for the parent that
applies to both:
common_parameter => blah
Not sure how this would work when considering enumerating all the existing
instances of configuration that this module adds - there can be many splunk
monitor instances configured, so I'd want to enumerate them first, much
like how the package providers enumerate installed packages first.
I've tried to think about modules that need authentication information to
analyse for some best practices, but haven't come across any.
Any pointers in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
