body file control
{
namespace => "name1";
}

bundle agent private
{
....
}

History: Was introduced in 3.4.0, Enterprise 3.0.0 (2012)

This directive can be given multiple times within any file, outside of body and bundle definitions.

Only soft classes from common bundles can be used in class decisions inside file control bodies.

inputs

Description: The inputs slist contains additional filenames to parse for promises.

The filenames specified are all assumed to be relative to the directory of the file which references them. Use an absolute file name if you need an absolute path. Use sys.libdir (absolute library path), sys.local_libdir (library path relative to the current masterfiles), and this.promise_dirname (the directory of the currently processed file) to avoid hard-coding paths.

Note that in this. variables are not available in body file control or body common control but this can be worked around with a bundle common vars promise as follows:

# one.cf
bundle common one
{
  vars:
    "inputs" slist => { "$(this.promise_dirname)/two.cf" };
}

body file control
{
  inputs => { "@(one.inputs)" };
}

bundle agent main
{
  methods:
    "two";
}
# two.cf
bundle agent two
{
  reports:
    "hello, from $(this.promise_filename)";
}
$ cf-agent -KIf ./one.cf
R: hello, from /home/agent/./two.cf

History: Was introduced in CFEngine 3.6.0

namespace

Description: The namespace string identifies a private namespace to switch to in order to protect the current file from duplicate definitions.

Type: string

Allowed input range: [a-zA-Z0-9_$(){}\[\].:]+

Example:

body file control
{
namespace => "name1";
}

Notes:

History: Was introduced in 3.4.0, Enterprise 3.0.0 (2012)

This directive can be given within any file, outside of body and bundle definitions, to change the namespace of subsequent bundles and bodies. A namespace applies until the next namespace declaration in a file, or until the end of a file. This is similar to how class expressions apply until the next class expression or end of bundle.
