I have a site.pp defining databases thusly:

  mysql::db { 'testdb':
    user     => 'testuser',
    password => 'testpass',
    host     => '%',
    grant    => ['ALL'],

How can I ensure the database is purged when the above block is removed from the manifest? My application is managing the site.pp, and removes the mysql::db block when the corresponding application record is removed.

As a separate note, host => '%' doesn't seem to work, while host => 'a%' does.

ensure => absent for like an hour , just to be sure that the client will update the catalog and then remove doesn't work?

Yeah! That would work, but then I have to implement a soft delete system in my application. I'd rather just have the client purge anything that's not in ...(more)

    name  => 'mysql::db', # (namevar)
    purge => true,
