This module installs and manages the Rspamd spam filter, and provides resources and functions to configure the Rspamd system. It does, however, not configure the systems beyond the upstream defaults.

Please note that while all versions starting from 1.6.3 should still be supported, this module is intended to be run with the latest version of Rspamd, and compatibility with older versions will not be tested for new releases.


What rspamd affects

By default, this module...

  • installs the package repository for Debian/Ubuntu and RHEL/CentOS/Fedora
  • installs the rspamd package
  • recursively purges all custom rspamd config (e.g. local.d and override.d directories)

Beginning with rspamd

The simplest way to use this module is:

include rspamd

This will setup the rspamd service the upstream default configuration.


The rspamd::config resource can be used to specify custom configuration entries. The easiest way to use it, is to put both the file and the hierachical config key into the resource title:

class { 'rspamd': }
rspamd::config {
  'classifier-bayes:backend': value => 'redis';
  'classifier-bayes:servers': value => '';
  'classifier-bayes:statfile[0].symbol': value => 'BAYES_HAM';
  'classifier-bayes:statfile[0].spam':   value => false;
  'classifier-bayes:statfile[1].symbol': value => 'BAYES_SPAM';
  'classifier-bayes:statfile[1].spam':   value => true;

This results the following config file /etc/rspamd/local.d/classifier-bayes.conf:

# This file is managed by Puppet. DO NOT EDIT.
backend = redis;
servers = "";
statfile {
  spam = false;
  symbol = 'BAYES_HAM';
statfile {
  spam = true;
  symbol = 'BAYES_SPAM';

Using the rspamd $config parameter, values for multiple config files can easily be provided from hiera:

    backend: redis
    servers: ""
      - symbol: BAYES_HAM
        spam: false
      - symbol: BAYES_SPAM
        spam: true
      - authentication-results
      - x-spam-status
    bind_socket: 'localhost:11332'
        self_scan: true
    sign_local: true

This uses the provided rspamd::create_config_resources and rspamd::create_config_file_resources functions, which can be used in custom profiles for extended use cases:

class profile::mail::rspamd (
  Hash $config,
  Hash $override_config,
) {
  class { 'rspamd': }

  rspamd::create_config_file_resources($override_config, { mode => 'override' })
