Overview

This resource allows you to manage group in a WebLogic Security Realm.

Here is an example on how you should use this:

wls_group { 'SuperUsers':
  ensure                 => 'present',
  authenticationprovider => 'DefaultAuthenticator',
  description            => 'SuperUsers',
  realm                  => 'myrealm',
  users                  => ['testuser2'],
}

In this example you are managing a group in the default domain. When you want to manage a group in a specific domain, you can use:

wls_group { 'my_domain/TestGroup':
  ensure                 => 'present',
  authenticationprovider => 'DefaultAuthenticator',
  description            => 'TestGroup',
  realm                  => 'myrealm',
  users                  => ['testuser1','testuser2'],
}

domain

With this parameter, you identify the domain, where your objects is in.

The domain name is part of the full qualified name of any WebLogic object on a system. Let’s say we want to describe a WebLogic server. The full qualified name is:

wls_server{'domain_name/server_name':
  ensure => present,
  ...
}

When you don’t specify a domain name, Puppet will use default as domain name. For every domain you want to manage, you’ll have to put a wls_settings in your manifest.

timeout

Timeout for applying a resource.

To be sure no Puppet operation, hangs a Puppet daemon, all operations have a timeout. When this timeout expires, Puppet will abort the current operation and signal an error in the Puppet run.

With this parameter, you can specify the length of the timeout. The value is specified in seconds. In this example, the timeout is set to 600 seconds.

wls_server{'my_server':
  ...
  timeout => 600,
}

The default value for timeout is 120 seconds.
