4.6 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.

tohuwabohu/autoconfig — version 1.0.3 Sep 23rd 2014



Puppet module to provide auto-discovery functionality for clients of certain services. At the moment, the module supports only Autoconfiguration for Thunderbird.


Setup the Thunderbird auto-configuration for a given domain

autoconfig::thunderbird { '': }

Enable the domain configuration in your web server by linking to the corresponding file in the configuration directory (e.g. /etc/autoconfig/apache.conf). Make sure the subdomain is pointing to the host where your web server is running.

To use a custom config-v1.1.xml, you can use

autoconfig::thunderbird { '':
  template => 'path/to/custom/template',

Furthermore, you want to notify your web server when the autoconfig web server configuration changes

class { 'autoconfig':
  notify => Service['apache'],


The module has been tested on the following operating systems. Testing and patches for other platforms are welcome.

  • Debian Linux 6.0 (Squeeze)
