      Description

      At present there is a way to store data in modules using the puppet backend for hiera but it is optional and kind of broken. The site hierarchy impacts how the puppet backend behaves which makes it impossible for module authors to supply data in their modules they can rely on

      I propose a new hiera backend that loads a hierarchy of data from the 'data' directory in the module, this module must always be present in a puppet install. This ability is key to the ability to create configurable forge modules that do not have hard coded values thanks to the puppet 3 hiera integration

          Has there been any more recent work on this subject, or are there any plans for Puppet 4 in this regard?

          +1 Private Data in modules. e.g. Instead of if this OS then set this multiple page case statement.

          PUP-1640 addresses the same requirement.

          Amos Shapira thanks for pointing to PUP-1640 - that ticket is about the mechanism that makes it possible to plugin technology for automatic data lookup from both modules and directory environments - it comes with one implementation that supports functions. The function support may be sufficient for many module author's needs, but it is also expected that there will be other implementations made by the community.

          PUP-4474 is the new Epic targeting Puppet 4.2.0 (replacing the old attempt to implement this described in the epic PUP-42).

          In the interest of closing old issues, this functionality is now available and seems to work as documented at https://docs.puppetlabs.com/puppet/latest/reference/lookup_quick.html

          Perhaps we can close this issue?
