Released under the terms of Apache 2 License.

This module requires functions provided by the Example42 Puppi module.

For detailed info about the logic and usage patterns of Example42 modules read README.usage on Example42 main modules set.

USAGE - Basic management

  • Install pentaho using your distro package, if available

    class { "pentaho": }
  • Install the latest pentaho version from upstream site

    class { "pentaho":
      install             => "source",
  • Install the latest pentaho version from upstream site using puppi. You will have a 'puppi deploy pentaho' to deploy and update pentaho.

      class { "pentaho":
        install             => "puppi",
  • Install source from a custom url to a custom install_destination path. The following parameters apply both for "source" and "puppi" install methods. Puppi method may be used to manage deployment updates (given the $install_source is updated). By default install_source is set to upstream developer and install_destination to Web (App) server document root Pre and post installation commands may be already defined (check pentaho/manifests/params.pp) override them only if needed. Url_check and url_pattern are used for application checks, if monitor is enabled. Override only if needed.

      class { "pentaho":
        install             => "source",
        install_source      => "",
  • Remove pentaho

    class { "pentaho":
      absent => true
  • Enable auditing without without making changes on existing pentaho configuration files

    class { "pentaho":
      audit_only => true

USAGE - Overrides and Customizations

  • Use custom sources for main config file

    class { "pentaho":
      source => [ "puppet:///modules/lab42/pentaho/wp-config.php-${hostname}" , "puppet:///modules/lab42/pentaho/wp-config.php" ], 
  • Use custom source directory for the whole configuration dir

    class { "pentaho":
      source_dir       => "puppet:///modules/lab42/pentaho/conf/",
      source_dir_purge => false, # Set to true to purge any existing file not present in $source_dir
  • Use custom template for main config file

    class { "pentaho":
      template => "example42/pentaho/wp-config.php.erb",      
  • Automaticallly include a custom subclass

    class { "pentaho:"
      my_class => 'pentaho::example42',

USAGE - Example42 extensions management

  • Activate puppi (recommended, but disabled by default) Note that this option requires the usage of Example42 puppi module

      class { "pentaho": 
        puppi    => true,
  • Activate puppi and use a custom puppi_helper template (to be provided separately with a puppi::helper define ) to customize the output of puppi commands

      class { "pentaho":
        puppi        => true,
        puppi_helper => "myhelper", 
  • Activate automatic monitoring (recommended, but disabled by default) This option requires the usage of Example42 monitor and relevant monitor tools modules

      class { "pentaho":
        monitor      => true,
        monitor_tool => [ "nagios" , "puppi" ],
