salt.states.salt_proxy module

Salt proxy state

New in version 2015.8.2.

State to deploy and run salt-proxy processes on a minion.

Set up pillar data for your proxies per the documentation.

Run the state as below

..code-block:: yaml

salt-proxy-configure:
salt_proxy.configure_proxy:
  • proxyname: p8000
  • start: True

This state will configure the salt proxy settings within /etc/salt/proxy (if /etc/salt/proxy doesn't exists) and start the salt-proxy process (default true), if it isn't already running.

salt.states.salt_proxy.configure_proxy(name, proxyname=u'p8000', start=True)

Create the salt proxy file and start the proxy process if required

Parameters:
  • name -- The name of this state
  • proxyname -- Name to be used for this proxy (should match entries in pillar)
  • start -- Boolean indicating if the process should be started

Example:

..code-block:: yaml

salt-proxy-configure:
salt_proxy.configure_proxy:
  • proxyname: p8000
  • start: True
