Good day! I am writing a custom type for puppet that should upload a file and then do some buiseness logic. How can I upload a file from 'files' folder of the module? I try following :

attr_writer :content
def create
  @content =[:file]) 
  puts @content   

But get an error:
Could not set 'present on ensure: undefined method `read' for Puppet::FileSystem:Module at /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/modules/glassfish/manifests/rootcertificate.pp:10

Try this.

class class_name {
file {
ensure => present,
**source => "puppet:///modules/class_name/file_name",**

This source attribute can upload the files on agent machine. And this file can be present on your /etc/puppet/modules/module_name/files/ directory. So you can upload the files on your agent machine.
