A puppet-lint plugin to check the ensure attribute on file resources.


From the command line

$ gem install puppet-lint-file_ensure-check

In a Gemfile

gem 'puppet-lint-file_ensure-check', :require => false


Ensure present on file resource

The present value for the ensure attribute is ambiguous. You should use file instead.

What you have done

file { '/etc/sudoers':
  ensure => present,

What you should have done

file { '/etc/sudoers':
  ensure => file,

Disabling the check

To disable this check, you can add --no-file_ensure-check to your puppet-lint command line.

$ puppet-lint --no-file_ensure-check path/to/file.pp

Alternatively, if you’re calling puppet-lint via the Rake task, you should insert the following line to your Rakefile.
