2.5 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.

Manage Internet Explorer Enhanced Security (IESEC) on Microsoft Windows

##Module Description

IESEC on Windows Server can affect the browsing experience and not allow important sites to load. This module will allow you to control the settings for IESEC.


###What iesec affects

  • If enabled, activex and scripting are disabled
  • If disabled, activex and scripting are enabled

###Setup Requirements

Depends on the following modules:




Class: iesec

    class { 'iesec':
      admin_enable => false,
      users_enable => true,

Parameters: $_admin_enable $users_enable

Both parameters accept boolean true and false


Here, list the classes, types, providers, facts, etc contained in your module. This section should include all of the under-the-hood workings of your module so people know what the module is touching on their system but don't need to mess with things. (We are working on automating this section!)
