Overview

Chef::Handler

The base class for an Exception or Notification Handler. Create your own handler by subclassing Chef::Handler. When a Chef run fails with an uncaught Exception, Chef will set the run_status on your handler and call report

Example:

require 'net/smtp'

module MyOrg
  class OhNoes < Chef::Handler

    def report
      # Create the email message
      message  = "From: Your Name <[email protected]>\n"
      message << "To: Destination Address <[email protected]>\n"
      message << "Subject: Chef Run Failure\n"
      message << "Date: #{Time.now.rfc2822}\n\n"

      # The Node is available as +node+
      message << "Chef run failed on #{node.name}\n"
      # +run_status+ is a value object with all of the run status data
      message << "#{run_status.formatted_exception}\n"
      # Join the backtrace lines. Coerce to an array just in case.
      message << Array(backtrace).join("\n")

      # Send the email
      Net::SMTP.start('your.smtp.server', 25) do |smtp|
        smtp.send_message message, '[email protected]', '[email protected]'
      end
    end

  end
end

#run_report_safely(run_status) ⇒ Object
