The sahara 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 Sahara module itself is used to flexibly configure and manage the clustering service for OpenStack.

Module Description

The sahara module is an attempt to make Puppet capable of managing the entirety of sahara.


What the sahara module affects:

  • Sahara, the data processing service for OpenStack.

Installing Sahara

puppet module install openstack/sahara

Beginning with sahara

To use the sahara module's functionality you will need to declare multiple resources. This is not an exhaustive list of all the components needed; we recommend you consult and understand the core of openstack documentation.

Examples of usage can be found in the examples directory.



puppet-sahara is a combination of Puppet manifests and ruby code to deliver configuration and extra functionality through types and providers.



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

sahara_config { 'DEFAULT/use_neutron' :
  value => True,

This will write use_neutron=True in the [DEFAULT] section.


Section/setting name to manage from sahara.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>
