branch: master
README.md

puppet-xmpp

Description

A Puppet report handler for sending notifications of failed runs to Jabber/XMPP.

Requirements

  • xmpp4r
  • puppet

Installation & Usage

  1. Install the xmpp4r gem on your Puppet master

    $ sudo gem install xmpp4r
    
  2. Install puppet-xmpp as a module in your Puppet master's module path.

  3. Update the xmpp_jid, xmpp_password, and xmpp_target variables in xmpp.yaml and copy the file to /etc/puppet. An example file is included.

    Set xmpp_muc to true if your target is a MUC.

  4. Add xmpp_environment in xmpp.yaml. You can set this value to a string or an array of strings. These strings are the names of acceptable environments to send alerts for. This option defaults to ALL, the processor will send an alert for errors in all environments.

  5. If you don't have SRV records you can specify the server hostname with xmpp_server.

  6. Enable pluginsync and reports on your master and clients in puppet.conf

    [master]
    report = true
    reports = xmpp
    pluginsync = true
    [agent]
    report = true
    pluginsync = true
    
  7. Run the Puppet client and sync the report as a plugin
