I'm getting an error in rspec-puppet tests that are paramters are invalid however I believe I'm declaring them properly

in my test I have:

let :params do {
    :adjoin_user => 'centrify-join',
    :adjoin_password => 'join123',
    :adjoin_domain => '',
    :adjoin_server => '',
    :auth_servers => [''],
    :users_allow => ['user1'],
    :auto_join => false,

and then In my params class (which is inherited by my main class)

class centrify::params {

$authservers = [] $usersallow = [] $adjoinuser = ''" $adjoinpassword = ''" $adjoindomain = ''" $adjoinserver = ''" $privategroup = true $autojoin = true }

Thank you in advance for any help.

the formatting got a bit messed up but in the params class those are all on separate lines

The interesting part is not the param class, it defines the default values and will not use the params provided in rspec-puppet. Normally your main class should take parameters like this:

class centrify( $adjoin_user     = $centrify::params::adjoin_user,
                $adjoin_password = $centrify::params::adjoin_password,
                $adjoin_domain   = $centrify::params::adjoin_domain,
                $adjoin_server   = $centrify::params::adjoin_server,
                $auth_servers    = $centrify::params::auth_servers,
                $users_allow     = $centrify::params::users_allow,
                $auto_join       = $centrify::params::auto_join ) inherits centrify::params {

With this your params defined in rspec-puppet will be provided as input of your main class, assuming that in the rspec-puppet files you have something like:

require 'spec_helper'

describe 'centrify' do
  let :params do {


end ...

I'll have to give that a try, my main class does take in the params from the params class like you have shown. I think my mistake was that ...(more)

This is giving me the error that the rspec tests for the install class is not seeing the params
