NAME

       cdist-type__consul_agent - Manage the consul agent

DESCRIPTION

       Configure and manage the consul agent.

REQUIRED PARAMETERS

       None.

OPTIONAL PARAMETERS

       acl-datacenter
              only used by servers. This designates the datacenter which is authoritative for ACL
              information.

       acl-default-policy
              either "allow" or "deny"; defaults to "allow".  The  default  policy  controls  the
              behavior of a token when there is no matching rule.

       acl-down-policy
              either "allow", "deny" or "extend-cache"; "extend-cache" is the default.

       acl-master-token
              only  used  for  servers  in  the  acl_datacenter.  This token will be created with
              management-level permissions if it does not exist. It allows operators to bootstrap
              the ACL system with a token ID that is well-known.

       acl-token
              when  provided,  the  agent  will use this token when making requests to the Consul
              servers.

       acl-ttl
              used to control Time-To-Live caching of ACLs.

       bind-addr
              sets the bind address for cluster communication

       bootstrap-expect
              sets server to expect bootstrap mode

       ca-file-source
              path to a PEM encoded  certificate  authority  file  which  will  be  uploaded  and
              configure using the ca_file config option.

       cert-file-source
              path  to  a PEM encoded certificate file which will be uploaded and configure using
              the cert_file config option.

       client-addr
              sets the address to bind for client access

       datacenter
              datacenter of the agent

       encrypt
              provides the gossip encryption key

       group  the primary group for the agent

       json-config
              path to a  partial  json  config  file  without  leading  {  and  trailing  }.   If
              json-config is '-' (dash), take what was written to stdin as the file content.

       key-file-source
              path  to  a PEM encoded private key file which will be uploaded and configure using
              the key_file config option.

       node-name
              name of this node. Must be unique in the cluster

       retry-join
              address to attempt joining every retry_interval until at least one join works.  Can
              be specified multiple times.

       user   the user to run the agent as

       state  if   the  agent  is  'present'  or  'absent'.  Defaults  to  'present'.   Currently
              state=absent is not working due to some dependency issues.

BOOLEAN PARAMETERS

       disable-remote-exec
              disables support for remote execution. When set to true, the agent will ignore  any
              incoming remote exec requests.

       disable-update-check
              disables automatic checking for security bulletins and new version releases

       leave-on-terminate
              gracefully leave cluster on SIGTERM

       rejoin-after-leave
              rejoin the cluster using the previous state after leaving

       server used to control if an agent is in server or client mode

       enable-syslog
              enables logging to syslog

       verify-incoming
              enforce the use of TLS and verify a client's authenticity on incoming connections

       verify-outgoing
              enforce the use of TLS and verify the peers authenticity on outgoing connections
