Deprecation: Verify File Expansion (CHEF-7)

[edit on GitHub]

The verify metaproperty allows the user to specify a {path} variable that is expanded to the path of the file to be verified. Previously, it was possible to use {file} as the variable, but that is now deprecated.

The {file} expansion was deprecated in Chef Client 12.5, and will be removed in Chef Client 13.


file '/etc/nginx.conf' do
  verify 'nginx -t -c %{file}'


Replace %{file} with %{path}:

file '/etc/nginx.conf' do
  verify 'nginx -t -c %{path}'
