Puppet Function: member

Defined in:
modules/stdlib/lib/puppet/parser/functions/member.rb
Function type:
Ruby 3.x API

Overview

member()Any

The variable can be a string, fixnum, or array.

> *Note*: This function does not support nested arrays. If the first argument contains nested arrays, it will not recurse through them.

> Note: Since Puppet 4.0.0 the same can be performed in the Puppet language. For single values the operator `in` can be used: `'a' in ['a', 'b'] # true` For arrays by using operator `-` to compute a diff: `['d', 'b'] - ['a', 'b', 'c'] == [] # false because 'd' is not subtracted` `['a', 'b'] - ['a', 'b', 'c'] == [] # true because both 'a' and 'b' are subtracted`

> *Note* that since Puppet 5.2.0, the general form to test the content of an array or hash is to use the built-in [`any`](puppet.com/docs/puppet/latest/function.html#any) and [`all`](puppet.com/docs/puppet/latest/function.html#all) functions.

Examples:

*Usage*

member(['a','b'], 'b') # Returns: true
member(['a', 'b', 'c'], ['a', 'b']) # Returns: true
member(['a','b'], 'c') # Returns: false
member(['a', 'b', 'c'], ['d', 'b']) # Returns: false

Returns:

  • (Any)

    Returns whether the given value was a member of the array

newfunction(:member, :type => :rvalue, :doc => <<-DOC
  @summary
    This function determines if a variable is a member of an array.

  The variable can be a string, fixnum, or array.

  > **Note**: This function does not support nested arrays. If the first argument contains
  nested arrays, it will not recurse through them.

  @example **Usage**
    member(['a','b'], 'b') # Returns: true
    member(['a', 'b', 'c'], ['a', 'b']) # Returns: true
    member(['a','b'], 'c') # Returns: false
    member(['a', 'b', 'c'], ['d', 'b']) # Returns: false

  > *Note:*
  Since Puppet 4.0.0 the same can be performed in the Puppet language.
  For single values the operator `in` can be used:
  `'a' in ['a', 'b']  # true`
  For arrays by using operator `-` to compute a diff:
  `['d', 'b'] - ['a', 'b', 'c'] == []  # false because 'd' is not subtracted`
  `['a', 'b'] - ['a', 'b', 'c'] == []  # true because both 'a' and 'b' are subtracted`

  @return
    Returns whether the given value was a member of the array

  > **Note** that since Puppet 5.2.0, the general form to test the content of an array or
  hash is to use the built-in [`any`](https://puppet.com/docs/puppet/latest/function.html#any)
  and [`all`](https://puppet.com/docs/puppet/latest/function.html#all) functions.
