Deprecation: Supports metaproperty (CHEF-8)

The user resource previously allowed a cookbook author to set policy for the resource in two ways. The supports metaproperty, which is now deprecated, enabled the manage_home and non_unique properties to be set.

The supports metaproperty was deprecated in Chef Infra Client 12.14 and will be removed in Chef Infra Client 13.


user 'betty' do
    manage_home: true,
    non_unique: true,


Make the manage_home and non_unique settings properties rather than parts of the supports hash.

  manage_home true
