Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place.

Openvpn Okta Cookbook README

Cookbook Version
Build Status

A Chef cookbook for the OpenVPN Okta plugin.

Note: This cookbook installs a version of the Okta plugin built from a custom branch that includes currently unreleased patches that add support for Okta Verify.


This cookbook depends on the openvpn and packagecloud community cookbooks, for the OpenVPN server itself and for the packaged version of the plugin that we build in

It primarily supports Ubuntu. There is support for RHEL platforms as well, but the openvpn cookbook as currently released has some issues related to Systemd that RHEL users will need to work around on their own.

It requires Chef 12.10.24+ or Chef 12 and the compat_resource cookbook.


Either add the default recipe to your node's run list or use the included custom resource in a recipe of your own.



Ensure the OpenVPN server is installed, patch it to delay writing in the config file and starting the service until the end of the Chef run, then install and configure the plugin based on Chef attribbutes (below).



The Okta plugin has four possible attributes that can be set, two of which are required for it to function.

node['openvpn_okta']['url'] (required)
node['openvpn_okta']['token'] (required)
node['openvpn_okta']['username_suffix'] (optional)
node['openvpn_okta']['allow_untrusted_users'] (optional)



The main resource for managing the plugin.


openvpn_okta 'default' do
  url ''
  token 'abc123'
  username_suffix ''
  allow_untrusted_users false
  action %i(install enable)


Action Description
:install Install the plugin package
:enable Patch the plugin into the OpenVPN server config
:remove Uninstall the plugin package
:disable Remove the plugin from the OpenVPN server config


Property Default Description
url nil The Okta URL
token nil The Okta API token
username_suffix nil A base @domain Okta user suffix
allow_untrusted_users nil Whether to allow untrusted users
action %i(install enable) Action(s) to perform
