Overview

This type allows you to manage a user inside an Oracle database.

It recognises most of the options that CREATE USER supports. Besides these options, you can also use this type to manage the grants and the quota’s for this user.

ora_user{user_name@sid:
  temporary_tablespace      => temp,
  default_tablespace        => 'my_app_ts',
  password                  => 'verysecret',
  require                   => Ora_tablespace['my_app_ts'],
  grants                    => ['SELECT ANY TABLE', 'CONNECT', 'CREATE TABLE', 'CREATE TRIGGER'],
  quotas                    => {
                                  "my_app_ts"  => 'unlimited'
                                },
}

common_granted

The common grants you want to make sure are granted to the ora_user or ora_role.

This property is only functional when applied on container databases.

It is different from the common_grants property in the sense that this is not a full list of the rights, but just the rights that are granted to the user

Here is an example with an ora_user:

ora_user {'scott':
  ...
  common_granted => ['GRANT ANY ROLE'],
  ...
}

Here is an example with an ora_role:

ora_role {'app_dba_role':
  ...
  common_granted => ['GRANT ANY ROLE'],
  ...
}

This property is mutual exclusive with the common_grants property.

common_granted_with_admin

This property is only functional when applied on container databases.

It is different from the common_grants_with_admin property in the sense that this is not a full list of the rights, but just the rights that are granted to the user

Here is an example with an ora_user:

ora_user {'scott':
  ...
  common_granted_with_admin => ['GRANT ANY ROLE'],

common_grants

Common grants for this user or role.

This property is only functional when applied on container databases.

All the common grants this resource has. Here is an example on how to use this on an ora_user:

ora_user { ‘my_user@sid’: … common_grants => [‘UNLIMITED TABLESPACE’, ‘CREATE PUBLIC SYNONYM’]. … }

Here is an example on how to use this on an ora_role:

ora_ora_role { ‘my_role@sid’: … common_grants => [‘UNLIMITED TABLESPACE’, ‘CREATE PUBLIC SYNONYM’]. … }

common_revoked

The common grants you want to make sure are revoked from the ora_user or ora_role.

This property is only functional when applied on container databases.

It is different from the common_grants property in the sense that this is not a full list of the rights, but just the rights that are NOT granted to the user

Here is an example when using ora_user:

ora_user {'scott':
  ...
  common_revoked => ['GRANT ANY ROLE'],
}

Here is an example when using ora_role:

ora_role {'scott':
  ...
  common_revoked => ['GRANT ANY ROLE'],
}

This property is mutual exclusive with the common_grants property.

container

Allows you to specify the scope of the object.

This property is only supported on version 12 and higher. It allows you to specify if the user will be seen through all portable containers (e.g. global) of just in the current pluggable database.

You can use container on:

  • ora_user
  • ora_profile
  • ora_object_grant

Here is an example on how to use this:

ora_... { '...@sid':
  ...
  container       => 'current',
  ...
}

Valid values are local, common.

Back to overview of ora_user

create_only

The attributes from ora_user you only want to manage when you create a user. This is usefull when defining oracle iser accounts for REAL users. Users that are supposed to change the password and the account expirery. Here is an example:

ora_user {'scott':
  password    => 'secret',
  locked      => false,
  expired     => true,
  create_only => ['locked', 'expired', 'password']
}

When user scott doesn’t exists, it will be created as an expired account, with specified password. After the first run the properties locked expired and password are not updated anymore. Even when there is a difference between the manifest and reality.

disable_corrective_change

Disable the modification of a resource when Puppet decides it is a corrective change.

(requires easy_type V2.11.0 or higher)

When using a Puppet Server, Puppet knows about adaptive and corrective changes. A corrective change is when Puppet notices that the resource has changed, but the catalog has not changed. This can occur for example, when a user, by accident or willingly, changed something on the system that Puppet is managing. The normal Puppet process then repairs this and puts the resource back in the state as defined in the catalog. This process is precisely what you want most of the time, but not always. This can sometimes also occur when a hardware or network error occurs. Then Puppet cannot correctly determine the current state of the system and thinks the resource is changed, while in fact, it is not. Letting Puppet recreate remove or change the resource in these cases, is NOT wat you want.

Using the disable_corrective_change parameter, you can disable corrective changes on the current resource.

Here is an example of this:

crucial_resource {'be_carefull':
  ...
  disable_corrective_change => true,
  ...
}

When a corrective ensure does happen on the resource Puppet will not modify the resource and signal an error:

    Error: Corrective change present requested by catalog, but disabled by parameter disable_corrective_change
    Error: /Stage[main]/Main/Crucial_resource[be_carefull]/parameter: change from '10' to '20' failed: Corrective change present requested by catalog, but disabled by parameter disable_corrective_change. (corrective)

disable_corrective_ensure

(requires easy_type V2.11.0 or higher)

When using a Puppet Server, Puppet knows about adaptive and corrective changes. A corrective change is when Puppet notices that the resource has changed, but the catalog has not changed.

Then Puppet cannot correctly determine the current state of the system and thinks the resource is changed, while in fact, it is not. Letting Puppet recreate remove or change the resource in these cases, is NOT wat you want.

Using the disable_corrective_ensure parameter, you can disable corrective ensure present or ensure absent actions on the current resource.

Here is an example of this:

crucial_resource {'be_carefull':
  ensure                    => 'present',
  ...
  disable_corrective_ensure => true,
  ...
}

When a corrective ensure does happen on the resource Puppet will not create or remove the resource and signal an error:

    Error: Corrective ensure present requested by catalog, but disabled by parameter disable_corrective_ensure.
    Error: /Stage[main]/Main/Crucial_resource[be_carefull]/ensure: change from 'absent' to 'present' failed: Corrective ensure present requested by catalog, but disabled by parameter disable_corrective_ensure. (corrective)

sid

SID to connect to.

All types have a name like resource@sid. The sid is optional. If you don’t specify the sid, the type will use the database from the /etc/ora_setting.yaml with the property default set to true. We advise you to either use @sid in all your manifests or leave it empty everywhere.
