Hello, regarding the missing "str" and "like" function in the actual PE repo, i want to know when you will merge the git changes into the repo releases. Right now i'm stuck, because razor-server lacks the ability to regex match e.g. macaddresses.
Reading this, https://tickets.puppetlabs.com/browse..., the missing functions are available in the git repo.
Howto merge the git repo into a running yum PE based installation ?
When you will update the repo so that these functions will be available ?

Thanks in advance

Franz

Hi Franz,

First a caveat: Making changes like this will nullify your PE Razor support contract, as you will no longer be running a supported version of Razor.

With that said... it is possible to update the file(s) from that pull request directly on your Razor server. To do so, search for a "matcher.rb" file inside a lib/razor directory and update its contents to look like this file: https://github.com/smcclellan/razor-s...

After that, just restart your Razor server using service pe-razor-server restart and you'll have access to those extra functions in tags.

Since these functions are a new feature, they will likely not be backported to the 2015.2 series and will instead wait for the next feature release included in PE.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Scott
