A module that adds data to the Pillar structure retrieved by an http request
Set the following Salt config to setup an http endpoint as the external pillar source:
ext_pillar: - http_yaml: url: http://example.com/api/minion_id ::TODO:: username: username password: password
If the with_grains parameter is set, grain keys wrapped in can be provided (wrapped in <> brackets) in the url in order to populate pillar data based on the grain value.
ext_pillar: - http_yaml: url: http://example.com/api/<nodename> with_grains: True
Changed in version 2018.3.0: If %s is present in the url, it will be automatically replaced by the minion_id:
ext_pillar: - http_json: url: http://example.com/api/%s
ext_pillar(minion_id, pillar, url, with_grains=False)¶
Read pillar data from HTTP response.
url (str) -- Url to request.
with_grains (bool) -- Whether to substitute strings in the url with their grain values.
A dictionary of the pillar data to add.
