I know how to set the policy from the gui and command line, but I can't find how and where to have puppet set the password policy for my FreeIPA. Here is my global policy command.

ipa pwpolicy-add --minlength=6 --minclasses=3 --maxlife=60 --minlife=24 --maxfail=3 --failinterval=3600 --lockouttime=3600 --priority=20

any help is much appreciated.

Since there's no native puppet resource type for this, you can utilize the [exec resource type]( (with a proper condition). Also, a `puppet module search freeipa` may reveal some interesting modules.

The other option is to write a custom type that wraps using the ipa commands to properly query/verify state, and ensure the correct changes. It requires getting a bit down and dirty with ruby.
