Usage

First, you have to declare your ssh_keys, users and usergroups hashes:

class { 'accounts':
  ssh_keys   => hiera_hash('accounts::ssh_keys', {}),
  users      => hiera_hash('accounts::users', {}),
  usergroups => hiera_hash('accounts::usergroups', {}),
}

Example hiera YAML file:

---
accounts::ssh_keys:
  foo:
    type: ssh-rsa
    public: FOO-S-RSA-PUBLIC-KEY
  bar:
    type: ssh-rsa
    public: BAR-S-RSA-PUBLIC-KEY

accounts::users:
  foo:
    uid: 1000
    comment: Foo
  bar:
    uid: 1001
    comment: Bar
  baz:
    # Remove user baz from every node (unless overridden)
    ensure: absent
  qux:
    uid: 1003
    comment: Qux

accounts::usergroups:
  foo:
    - foo
    - bar
  bar:
    - baz
    - qux

Then you can create accounts on your node with the accounts::account defined type.

accounts::account { 'foo': }

Creates a foo user if it exists in $::accounts::users and at allow its public key if it exists in $::accounts::ssh_keys.

accounts::account { 'bar':
  authorized_keys => ['@foo', 'baz'],
}

Creates a bar user if it exists in $::accounts::users and at allow its public key, everyone's in thefoo usergroup's public key and baz's one if it exists in $::accounts::ssh_keys.

accounts::account { '@foo': }

Create a user for every user in foo usergroup and allow its public key.
