Description Giulio Fidente 2015-10-20 09:30:41 EDT
Description of problem:
we have a number of parameters which allow for provisioning of arbitrary hiera data to the nodes.


the first two are for hiera data to be distributed on the relevant nodes, the latter for all nodes

I think it would be nice to document usage of these with a short example as it happens in the commit message of: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/197908/

These can be passed with a custom yaml containing;

      myclass::myparam: myvalue

This is now live:


Giulio -- Does this suit your requirements? Anything else I should add?

hi Dan, I think this is great! Thanks. In the future we can document how to include additional puppet classes or even deploy an additional .pp

I'm setting a needinfo for Cyril so he can help review this as well.

NovaComputeExtraConfig and ExtraConfig doesn't work.

Use have to use parameters instead of parameter_defaults.
