How to access default attribute of one cookbook in another cookbook


#1

Hi,

While writing recepies for a particular cookbook is there a way to access the
default attribute of another cookbook in it?

Thanks
Animesh Mishra


#2

With an appropriate metadata entry and ‘include_attribute
"cookbook::attribute_file"’ in the attribute (node) or recipe dsl
(iirc)

Please report back if this doesn’t work.

Cheers,

–AJ
