5.0 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

jcpunk/authselect — version 1.0.0 Feb 22nd 2023


Manage authselect profile on systems that support it.

This module does not create custom profiles or deploy them. For consistency, you are advised to package them up and then deploy that package rather than build them ad-hoc.

Set your authselect profile and any required features.


What authselect affects

This will alter your host's fundemental authentication and lookups via authselect. Understand what that means before using it.

Setup Requirements

You will need to start any required services BEFORE the authselect class runs.

This class does not track things like sssd or winbind services.

You may use Class[authselect] or Exec[authselect set profile] to ensure your services are running.


Example class invocation:

class { 'authselect':
  profile => 'sssd',
  profile_options => [ 'with-mkhomedir', 'with-faillock']

And the Hiera file would look like:

authselect::profile: sssd
  - with-mkhomedir
  - without-pam-u2f-nouserok

This class also provides two facts: authselect_profile and authselect_profile_features.


This class does not have methods for deploying or generating custom profiles.


Folks should use the repo listed in metadata.json.
