puppet-unifi_controller

Overview

Provisions the Unifi Controller software provided by Ubiquiti for configuring and managing their networking hardware.

Configuration

Currently this module is limited to installed a specific version of the server:

class { '::unifi_controller':
  app_version => '5.3.8', # pin specific version
}

If left unset, app_version will be updated semi-frequently to the latest version offered by Ubiquiti. If this isn't something you'd like, please pin the version either using the syntax above, or by using Hiera.

This module does not configure any kind of firewall, it is strongly recommended that you firewall this system heavily.

You may also wish to change the https port to be something more convenient (eg 443), if you change it from 8443, this module setups a firewall/NAT redirect from 443 to 8443, since the port can't be changed using any built in approach inside Unifi Controller itself. This requires the puppetlabs/firewall module.

Note, since this port change takes place in prerouting, you'll need to allow access to TCP/8443 regardless of what you change the port to in your iptables firewall rules.

Requirements

The currently listed GNU/Linux platforms at the Ubiquiti support page are supported by this module.

There is no RHEL/clone version or any platforms other than x86_64 because Ubiquiti don't provide any software/support for those platforms.

Limitations

Ubiquiti don't make the software available as a proper APT repo, so we can't (easily) do things like check for the latest version - so we currently pin to specific versions.

The downloads of their package come direct from their website, if they change their download methodology or packaging approach, this could break in future.
