NAME

       cdist-type__key_value - Change property values in files

DESCRIPTION

       This cdist type allows you to change values in a key value based config file.

REQUIRED PARAMETERS

       file
           The file to operate on.

       delimiter
           The delimiter which separates the key from the value.

OPTIONAL PARAMETERS

       state
           present or absent, defaults to present. If present, sets the key to value, if absent,
           removes the key from the file.

       key
           The key to change. Defaults to object_id.

       value
           The value for the key. Optional if state=absent, required otherwise.

       comment
           If supplied, the value will be inserted before the line with the key, but only if the
           key or value must be changed. You need to ensure yourself that the line is prefixed
           with the correct comment sign. (for example # or ; or wathever ..)

BOOLEAN PARAMETERS

       exact_delimiter
           If supplied, treat additional whitespaces between key, delimiter and value as wrong
           value.

MESSAGES

           Removed existing key and value

       insert
           Added key and value

       change
           Changed value of existing key

       create

EXAMPLES

           # Set the maximum system user id
           __key_value SYS_UID_MAX --file /etc/login.defs --value 666 --delimiter ' '

           # Same with fancy id
           __key_value my-fancy-id --file /etc/login.defs --key SYS_UID_MAX --value 666 \
              --delimiter ' '

           # Enable packet forwarding
           __key_value net.ipv4.ip_forward --file /etc/sysctl.conf --value 1 \
              --delimiter ' = ' --comment '# my linux kernel should act as a router'

           # Remove existing key/value
           __key_value LEGACY_KEY --file /etc/somefile --state absent --delimiter '='

MORE INFORMATION

       This type try to handle as many values as possible, so it doesn’t use regexes. So you need
       to exactly specify the key and delimiter. Delimiter can be of any lenght.
