This modules is meant to fill in the gaps between an Oracle delivered PeopleSoft install via DPK and a running production system. Settings that cannot be conifgured from the DPK will be settable here from Hiera.

To use this module you must be a PeopleSoft customer using the DPK installer process based on puppet to deploy nodes. This module is intended to run after the WebLogic domain has been deployed to update settings not available in the delivered installation process.

Data for the module will be pulled from Hiera. Depending on your setup, you may want to create an additional profile to encapsulate the classes you want to use from this module.

Module Description

We will not be supporting new installations of WebLogic or PeopleSoft from this module. This will only augment PeopleSoft DPK installations as needed by the community.

Modules from the Puppet Forge may be dependencies for this module as defined in the metadata. Being able to use Forge modules in your environment is likely to be required.

What io_weblogic affects

  • WebLogic PeopleSoft Domain, JAVA_OPTIONS_${platform} subsettings
  • WebLogic PeopleSoft Domain, SSL_KEY_STORE_PATH if you choose to use Standard JAVA Trust
  • WebLogic Peoplesoft Domain pskey file delivered with Peoplesoft
  • JAVA cacert password store password, if selected
  • JAVA Unlimited Cryptography Extensions (JCE), if selected

Setup Requirements

  • PeopleSoft installed via DPK (Puppet)
  • Ability to use Puppet Forge modules in your deployment

Beginning with io_weblogic

include '::io_weblogic' is enough to get you up and running. To Change the defaults you can set them in hiera or pass them in.



Java Options Will allow you to pass in a hash and set arbitrary values for the Java Options in This Class will be run by default if the io_weblogic::java_options hash is defined in hiera.

Hiera Example:

    -Xms:                              '1024m'
    -Xmx:                              '1024m'
    -Dweblogic.threadpool.MinPoolSize: '=100'
    -Dhttps.protocols:                 '=TLSv1,TLSv1.1,TLSv1.2'


The pskey class will load certificates in to your pskey store from a hash and set the password for pskey if desired.

pskey will run when either of the following are true:

  1. io_weblogic::certificates is defined
  2. io_weblogic::pskey_passwd is set to something other than the default

Hiera Example:

io_weblogic::pskey_passwd: 'supersecret'

      certificate: /tmp/cert.pem
      private_key: /tmp/key.pem
      certificate: /tmp/cert2.pem
      private_key: /tmp/key2.pem
      certificate: /tmp/cert3.pem


The cacert class has two functions, it can change the password for the delivered JAVA cacert keystore and change the SSL_KEY_STORE_PATH in

This is used if you would like to avoid adding common root certificates to your delivered pskey and instead use the standart trust delivered with JAVA.

cacert will run when either of the following are true:

  1. io_weblogic::standard_java_trust is set to true
  2. io_weblogic::cacert_passwd is set to something other than the default

When run it will set the password, if defined and update setEnv for JAVA trust, if true.

Hiera Example:

io_weblogic::cacert_passwd:       'supersecret'
io_weblogic::standard_java_trust: true


The JCE class downloads and installs the JAVA Unlimited Cryptography Extensions needed for setting up WebLogic for SSL

This class will be run if the install_jce flag is set to true.

By default the class will download the JCE files directly from Oracle. 1.7 for PT 8.55/8.54 and 1.8 for 8.56. See the hiera example for an example of how to pass in a path or another URL.

For extracting the archives you will need unzip on Linux or 7zip on Windows.

Hiera Example:

io_weblogic::install_jce: true
io_weblogic::jce_archive_path: (alternate filesystem path or URL)
