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.

landcareresearch/check_run — version 6.0.0 Mar 2nd 2021


Puppet Forge Bitbucket Build Status


Manages tasks checking if a task has run or if a task should run.

Module Description

Runs a command only once using a file based approach to indicate a task was run. This is primarily useful for running a one off command for installation.


Make sure that check_run is included in order to use its variables

include check_run
$task_name = 'test_run'

Runs the command only once and will not execute after this one

  exec_command => "/usr/bin/touch $check_run::root_dir/ttt",


Only works with redhat & debian based OS's.


The module is open source and available on bitbucket. Please fork!


The vagrant directory contains the vagrant scripts for functional testing. See the file in this directory for additional information.
