Actions Status Puppet Forge

A Puppet function to determine if an IPv4 address is within the IPv4 CIDR

ip_in_range returns true if the ipaddress is within the given CIDRs

usage: ip_in_range(<IPv4 Address>, <IPv4 CIDR>)

or when you want to check against more than one CIDR and return true if the IP address is contained in any of them.

$ranges = ['', '']
$valid_ip = ip_in_range('', $ranges) # $valid_ip == true

There are a couple of commonly used patterns -

$valid_ip = ip_in_range('', '') # $valid_ip == true

or using the check as part of a conditional -

if ip_in_range($ipaddress, '') == true {
  notify { 'Do subnet based resources here': }

This module has a dependency on puppetlabs-stdlib.
