NAME

       cdist-type__directory - Manage a directory

DESCRIPTION

       This cdist type allows you to create or remove directories on the target.

REQUIRED PARAMETERS

       None.

OPTIONAL PARAMETERS

       state  'present' or 'absent', defaults to 'present'

       group  Group to chgrp to.

       mode   Unix permissions, suitable for chmod.

       owner  User to chown to.

BOOLEAN PARAMETERS

       parents
              Whether  to create parents as well (mkdir -p behaviour).  Warning: all intermediate
              directory permissions default to whatever mkdir -p does.

              Usually this means root:root, 0700.

       recursive
              If supplied the chgrp and chown call will run recursively.  This does not influence
              the behaviour of chmod.

MESSAGES

       chgrp <group>
              Changed group membership

       chown <owner>
              Changed owner

       chmod <mode>
              Changed mode

       create Empty directory was created

       remove Directory exists, but state is absent, directory will be removed by generated code.

       remove non directory
              Something other than a directory with the same name exists and was removed prior to
              create.

EXAMPLES

          # A silly example
          __directory /tmp/foobar

          # Remove a directory
          __directory /tmp/foobar --state absent

          # Ensure /etc exists correctly
          __directory /etc --owner root --group root --mode 0755

          # Create nfs service directory, including parents
          __directory /home/services/nfs --parents

          # Change permissions recursively
          __directory /home/services --recursive --owner root --group root

          # Setup a temp directory
          __directory /local --mode 1777

          # Take it all
          __directory /home/services/kvm --recursive --parents \
              --owner root --group root --mode 0755 --state present
