overview

The xldeploy module enables you to install and manage large XL Deploy enabled infrastructures.

module-description

XL Deploy is a kick-ass modular platform independant software deployment system. This module enables you to tie this deployment software into your puppet environment. It can take care of installing XL Deploy servers as well as integrate middleware components elsewhere in your infrastructure.

setup

what-puppet-xldeploy-affects:

  • installation/service/configuration files for XL Deploy
  • listened-to ports
  • backend storage filesystem/database
  • xldeploy housekeeping
  • xldeploy repository configuration items
  • xldeploy repository roles/permissions
  • xldeploy repository dictionaries
  • xldeploy cli installation
  • installs compatible java version (optional)

setup-requirements

  • This module makes use of exported resources (optional) if you descide to use this functionallity please configure this in your puppet.conf file on the master.
  • This module makes use of the puppetdbquery module to distribute sshkeys across the infrastructure (optional). This functionality depends on puppetdb.

Basic usage when installing a xldeploy server

class{xldeploy::server:}

For a more comprehensive setup in wich a supported java version is installed and a xldeploy license file is included try the example below.

class{xldeploy::server:
    install_java                => true,
    install_license             => true,
    install_type                => 'download',
    download_user               => 'foobar',
    download_password           => 'notapassword',
    download_proxy_url          => 'http://some:user@companyproxy.evil.empire:8080'
 }

To install the command line interface (cli) software bundled with xldeploy use the seperate xldeploy::cli class like discribed below.

class{xldeploy::cli:
        install_java                => true,
        install_type                => 'netinstall',
        download_user               => 'foobar',
        download_password           => 'notapassword',
        download_proxy_url          => 'http://some:user@companyproxy.evil.empire:8080'
 }

From a potential xldeploy client machine using the module to register a ci in with the xldeploy server.

all in one go:

class{xldeploy::client:
        http_context_root   => '/', # set '/' if you've not changed the XL Deploy context else set its value here
        http_server_address => 'xldeploy.local.domain',
        http_port           => '4516',
        rest_user           => 'admin',
        rest_password       => 'dummy',
        ssl                 => false,
        cis                 => { 'project_folder' => { name => "/Infrastructure/projectx",
                                                       type => 'core.Directory',
                                                       },
                                 'host' => { name => "/Infrastructure/projectx/${hostname}_sshHost",
                                             type => 'overthere.SshHost',
                                             properties => { 'os' => 'UNIX',
                                                             'port' => '22',
                                                             'username' => 'deployit',
                                                             'tags' => 'projectx',
                                                             'connectionType' => 'SCP',
                                                             'address' => $hostname }
                                  }
                                 }
}

the above example uses the builtin create_resources construct to create the ci's specified in the array one by one. This construct is especially handy when used in conjunction with automatic data bindings from a Hiera backend.

Users are also able to create ci's using the module's types and providers (setting 'use_exported_resources' to 'true'):

xldeploy_ci{ 'Infrastructure/projectx':
      ensure             => present,
      type               => 'core.Directory',
      rest_url           => 'http://admin:password@xldeploy.domain.local:4516/xldeploy' }
}

xldeploy_ci{ "Infrastructure/projectx/${hostname}_sshHost":
      ensure             => present,
      type               => 'overthere.SshHost',
      properties         => { 'os' => 'UNIX',
                              'port' => '22',
                              'username' => 'deployit',
                              'tags' => 'projectx',
                              'connectionType' => 'SCP',
                              'address' => $hostname },
      rest_url           => 'http://admin:password@xldeploy.domain.local:4516/xldeploy' }
}

Both class parameters and types and providers are available for defining memberships,users, roles, dictionary_settings and role_permissions wich work in the same way as the above specified method for defining a ci.

running with custom file sources

In some cases you may want to override the default urls provided by the module to download the various components used in the installation. For both installation sources and licenses you can specify either a http or a puppetfiles url. When specifying a puppetfiles url , the module will get the sources from puppet file serving. Please take notice of the fact that zip files need to be supplied in order for the installation to work.

  class{xldeploy::server:
          install_java                => true,
          install_license             => true,
          custom_license_source       => 'puppet:///<some_file_location>/deployit-license.lic',
          custom_download_server_url  => 'puppet:///<some_puppetfile_location/some_xldeploy_server.zip',
          custom_download_cli_url     => 'puppet:///<some_puppetfile_location/some_xldeploy_cli.zip',
       }
