Module: Chef::Mixin::Securable::WindowsMacros

Defined in:
lib/chef/mixin/securable.rb

Overview

==WindowsMacros Defines methods for adding attributes to a chef resource to describe Windows file security metadata.

This module is meant to be used to extend a class (instead of include-ing). A class is automatically extended with this module when

it includes WindowsSecurableAttributes.

TODO should this be separated into different files?

Instance Method Details

#rights_attribute(name) ⇒ Object

=== rights_attribute "meta-method" for dynamically creating rights attributes on resources.

Multiple rights attributes can be declared. This enables resources to have multiple rights attributes with separate runtime states.

For example, +Chef::Resource::RemoteDirectory+ supports different rights on the directories and files by declaring separate rights attributes for each (rights and files_rights).

==== User Level API Given a resource that calls

rights_attribute(:rights)

Then the resource DSL could be used like this:

rights :read, ["Administrators","Everyone"] rights :deny, "Pinky" rights :full_control, "Users", :applies_to_children => true rights :write, "John Keiser", :applies_to_children => :containers_only, :applies_to_self => false, :one_level_deep => true

==== Internal Data Structure rights attributes support multiple right declarations in a single resource block--the data will be merged into a single internal hash.

The internal representation is a hash with the following keys:

  • :permissions: Integer of Windows permissions flags, 1..2^32 or one of [:full_control, :modify, :read_execute, :read, :write]
  • :principals: String or Array of Strings represnting usernames on the system.
  • :applies_to_children (optional): Boolean
  • :applies_to_self (optional): Boolean
  • :one_level_deep (optional): Boolean
