exec from forge module returns 1

asked 2017-04-07 11:15:13 -0500

I am using a forge module that returns 1 as the return code and puppet throws an error about it.

But for that exec , 1 should be treated as successful.

I cannot add returns 1 on the exec because it is inside a forge module and is not in my module code.

How do i handle this? The module owner has to fix their code to let 1 as successful or is there a way around?

Many thanks in advance!

There isn't a good/clean way to fix the problem. Either you submit a pull request to the maintainer of the module, or you create your own fork (local or otherwise). There isn't a reasonable way to subclass and override in puppet code.

Typically, a return code of 1 should be an error. Some modules have options to pass in additional parameters for execs (I believe the staging module has an argument where you can pass additional flags in, and adding things like an --overwrite flag to a tar file allows it's behavior to act gracefully and not return a 1 in some cases.

What module, and what exec?
