Hash / Array Merging
I have data in module that uses lookup options to merge hashes together wherever they are found within my hiera hierarchy.
https://docs.puppet.com/hiera/3.3/loo... is the link to the lookup options that I am using.
I have a hash in hiera in the format:
rules: '/tmp': options: 'R' daystokeep: '5' regex: '*'
Then elsewhere I have a hash elsewhere in my hierarchy like:
'/var/log': options: 'R' daystokeep: '5' regex: '*'
These merge correctly using the following in my module.yaml file.
rules: merge: strategy: deep merge_hash_arrays: true
The problem is that if I want to have the same
key in my hash, the hash breaks and only takes one of the two values, for example if I added the following:
rules: '/tmp': options: '' daystokeep: '365' regex: '*.log'
It is different than the /tmp above however the key of the hash is the same and so they do not merge correctly.
Is there a way to create a hash with non-unique keys? Is there a way to create a hash of arrays that will also do a deep merge?
Any feedback and /or examples are appreciated.
