Howto - chef-vault and chef-splunk?


#1

Hi,

Sorry that this might be a kind of broad/vague question, but some of the recipes in the chef-splunk cookbook (https://github.com/chef-cookbooks/chef-splunk) like the “server” recipe, require that something be set up in another cookbook, chef-vault, but I’ve been reading the information there (both on the chef-splunk and on the chef-vault pages) and it’s not clear to me exactly what needs to be done?

Can someone explain what I need to do to get that part setup?

Thanks,
Jim

Jim,

I highly encourage you to slow down a little and take some time to read
around Chef and the ecosystem.

I can only drive you to

I hope this can help you get more overview over the use of resources,
LWRP, and how to use resources from one cookbook within another one
(LWRP use).

Doing more would be a full time work, and I’m not paid for this, you may
engage for a cusotmer support with Chef Inc. if you really need it and
can’t spend too much time learning by yourself.

Regards
