registry_key resource missing modify action?


#1

Hello Chefs,

Looking at the registry LWRP in the windows cookbook it’s saying that it is deprecated in favor of registry_key resource, however the latter doesn’t seem to have :modify action for existing keys.

What’s the approach to modify an existing key/value, w/o having to resort to powershell resource? Still use registry LWRP?

Thank you

:create should also set the key to the target value. Let us know if
it doesn’t.
