Overview

This class provides simple methods for issuing various types of HTTP requests. It's interface is intended to mirror Ruby's Net::HTTP object, but it provides a few important bits of additional functionality. Notably:

  • Any HTTPS requests made using this class will use Puppet's SSL certificate configuration for their authentication, and

  • Provides some useful error handling for any SSL errors that occur during a request.

Constructor Details

#initialize(host, port, options = {}) ⇒ Connection

This method is part of a private API. You should avoid using this method if possible, as it may be removed or be changed in the future.

Note:

the HTTP connection itself happens lazily only when #request, or one of the #get, #post, #delete, #head or #put is called

Note:

The correct way to obtain a connection is to use one of the factory methods on Puppet::Network::HttpPool

Creates a new HTTP client connection to `host`:`port`.

Options Hash (options):

  • :use_ssl (Boolean)

    true to connect with SSL, false otherwise, defaults to true

  • :verify (#setup_connection)

    An object that will configure any verification to do on the connection

  • :redirect_limit (Integer)

    the number of allowed redirections, defaults to 10 passing any other option in the options hash results in a Puppet::Error exception

#request_get(*args, &block) ⇒ Object

TODO: These are proxies for the Net::HTTP#request_* methods, which are almost the same as the “get”, “post”, etc. methods that we've ported above, but they are able to accept a code block and will yield to it, which is necessary to stream responses, e.g. file content. For now we're not funneling these proxy implementations through our #request method above, so they will not inherit the same error handling. In the future we may want to refactor these so that they are funneled through that method and do inherit the error handling.
