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
