4.7 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.

FetchCRL module for Puppet

CI Code Coverage Puppet Forge Puppet Forge - downloads Puppet Forge - endorsement Puppet Forge - scores

This is the fetchcrl Puppet module. It configures fetch-crl version 3 wherever it can.

Fetchcrl utility will retrieve certificate revocation lists (CRLs) for a set of installed trust anchors, based on crl_url files or IGTF-style info files.

This module obsoletes CernOps-fetchcrl-1.1.0


class { 'fetchcrl':
  http_proxy            => 'http:://',
  carepo                => '',
  cache_control_request => '3600',

fetchcrl::ca { 'EDG-Tutorial-CA':
 agingtolerance => 168,
 comment        => 'Increased as unreliable',


Two custom facts are included.

  • certissuer returns the issuer of a grid certificate located at /etc/grid-security/hostcert.pem if it exists.

  • trustedca returns an array of all the certificate authoriry subjects located at /etc/grid-security/*.pem
