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.

This module provides variables needed by one or more SIMP module.

This is a SIMP module

This module is a component of the System Integrity Management Platform, a compliance-management framework built on Puppet.

Most SIMP modules actively take advantage of this module when used within the SIMP ecosystem.


Module Description

The simp_options module primarily provides variables that are

  • Enablers of capabilities provided or used by SIMP modules.
  • Data that describes the configuration of a site.
    • The scope of the data is larger than the scope of a single module.
    • 0..n unrelated profiles might make use of this data.

Some of these variables support SIMP's security compliance reporting.


What simp_options affects

The variables provided by simp_options are used by SIMP modules to enable and/or configure capabilities.

Beginning with simp_options

simp_options is configured for you when you run simp config on your SIMP system. Otherwise, setup is simple: include the class as the first class in your site.pp and select the desired capabilities through Hiera or your ENC.


The environments/simp/hieradata/simp_defs.yaml file delivered with the simp puppet module is an example file that can be used to create the appropriate hieradata for your site.




This module is applicable to SIMP systems or systems containing SIMP components.
