Overview

TThis resource allows you to manage deployments in a resource group template in an WebLogic 12.2.1 domain.

Experience the Power of Puppet for WebLogic

If you want to play and experiment with Puppet and WebLogic, please take a look at our playgrounds. At our playgrounds, we provide you with a pre-installed environment, where you experiment fast and easy.

The deployment type

disable_autorequire

Puppet supports automatic ordering of resources by autorequire. Sometimes, however, this causes issues. Setting this parameter to true, disables autorequiring for this specific resource.

USE WITH CAUTION!!

Here is an example on hopw to use this:

...{'domain_name/...':
  disableautorequire => true,
  ...
}

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

Disable the creation or removal of a resource when Puppet decides 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_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)

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.

ensure

Valid values are present, absent.

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.
