The ironic 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 baremetal service for OpenStack.

Module Description


What the ironic module affects:

  • Ironic, the baremetal service for OpenStack.

Installing Ironic

puppet module install openstack/ironic

Beginning with ironic

To utilize the ironic module's functionality you will need to declare multiple resources. This is not an exhaustive list of all the components needed. We recommend that you consult and understand the core openstack documentation to assist you in understanding the available deployment options.

# enable Ironic resources
class { 'ironic':
  default_transport_url => 'rabbit://ironic:an_even_bigger_secret@',
  database_connection   => 'mysql://ironic:a_big_secret@',

class { 'ironic::db::mysql':
  password => 'a_big_secret',

class { 'ironic::keystone::auth':
  password => 'a_big_secret',

class { 'ironic::client': }

class { 'ironic::conductor': }

class { 'ironic::api':
  admin_password => 'a_big_secret',

class { 'ironic::drivers::ipmi': }

Examples of usage also can be found in the *examples* directory.


### puppet-ironic

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

### Types

#### ironic_config

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

ironic_config { 'DEFAULT/my_ip' :
  value =>,

This will write my_ip= in the [DEFAULT] section.


Section/setting name to manage from ironic.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>
