The designate module is a part of OpenStack, an effort by the Openstack infrastructure team to provide continuous integration testing and code review for Openstack and Openstack community projects as part of the core software. The module itself is used to flexibly configure and manage the DNS service for Openstack.

Module Description


What the designate module affects:

  • designate, the DNS service for Openstack.



designate is a combination of Puppet manifest and ruby code to delivery configuration and extra functionality through types and providers.



The designate_config provider is a children of the ini_setting provider. It allows one to write an entry in the /etc/designate/designate.conf file.

designate_config { 'DEFAULT/verbose' :
  value => true,

This will write verbose=true in the [DEFAULT] section.


Section/setting name to manage from designate.conf


The value of the setting to be defined.


Whether to hide the value from Puppet logs. Defaults to false.


If value is equal to ensure_absent_val then the resource will behave as if ensure => absent was specified. Defaults to <SERVICE DEFAULT>
