I'm trying to create a cron module which configure pacemaker to manage this resources.

I'd like to put all my cron task primitives into a pacemaker group. For that I need a list of all the cron task I created inside puppet in order to create this group.

As Greg mentioned, you will need to use $cron::taskList for that variable. However, taskList will cause you some problems, as capital letters are not allowed. Variables, classes and modules should confirm to [a-z][a-z0-9_]*. Depending on your version of puppet, it may or may not work if you use capitals or hyphens, but ... (more)
