Build Status


This module provides helpers for using Consul with HAProxy. In particular, it provides:

  • a simplified way to make your Consul server listen on port 53 via the dns_on_53 class
  • a reusable block of code for setting up connection validation between HAProxy and somthing using your Puppet CA via the puppet_ca_files class
  • a defined type named resolver that sets up a resolver in HAProxy that points at your Consul cluster
  • a defined type named server_tempalte that drastically reduces the work of creating the resources needed to front services registered in Consul

Requirements and Impact

This module will modify your HAProxy configs and can add firewall rules to your Consul server. A working Consul cluster is required also (a single node is fine).


See for examples of how to use the helpers provided by this module.


This module is documented via pdk bundle exec puppet strings generate --format markdown. Please see for more info.

Changelog is generated prior to each release via pdk bundle exec rake changelog. This proecss relies on labels that are applied to each pull request.


This module assumes you are running HAProxy on *nix.
