Building Authoritative Resource Sets

Building Authoritative Resource Sets

chef is additive by nature. Removing resource definitions from recipes will not remove the resources from the system. This can be confusing for beginner chefs. An authoritative resource set is a term used to describe a resource set containing only the resources defined in the chef recipes.

The "zap" pattern emerged as a way to build authoritative resource sets. The LWRPs from the zap cookbook,, will be presented as well as various use cases.

This talk was presented at ChefConf 2014.
