#1029 solj fixed Action entries cannot be whitelisted/blacklisted

<Action ...> configuration entries bypass the Decisions' whitelist/blacklist filtering by the client.

A simple example:

<Bundle name='a'>
  <BoundAction name='a1' command='/usr/bin/touch /tmp/a1_executed' when='always' status='check' timing='post' />

Then run bcfg2 -l whitelist. The Action's command will get executed, even though it's not whitelisted.

This behaviour doesn't seem to be documented. IMHO, the promise of white/blacklist safety is not fulfilled here. (Eg. I use Actions for setting up static routing using just the 'route' command, so an Action is the sole element of the Bundle, and, obviously, I need to control which hosts actually execute it).

I believe it happens in Client.Frame.Install(), where tool.BundleUpdated() and tool.BundleNotUpdated() are called unconditionally.

Also, in Client.Frame.Decide() some Actions get run regardless of their white/blacklist status. (Perhaps there are some other places where Actions can get run, but my understanding of the code is not good enough to find them.)

A partial workaround could be to add to the Bundle an artificial config file (crafted just to mirror the actual "volatile" configuration), and set the Action to when='modified'. This would still be fragile for some non-trivial Bundles and commands, though.


#836 desai solj wontfix Action support for Snapshots model

We need to add Action entries to Snapshots to prevent this:

#751 desai somekool <[email protected]…> worksforme Action when'always' are executed even with a -b flag

lets say I have two bundles, [ bundle1, bundle2 ]

bundle1 contains an action with when='always'

I do

bcfg2 -I -b bundle2

I will be prompt for that action.

I believe this is a bug.
