directory

Use the directory InSpec audit resource to test if the file type is a directory. This is equivalent to using the file resource and the be_directory matcher, but provides a simpler and more direct way to test directories.


Availability

Installation

This resource is distributed along with InSpec itself. You can use it automatically.

Version

Syntax

A directory resource block declares the location of the directory to be tested, and then one (or more) matchers.

describe directory('path') do
  its('property') { should cmp 'value' }
end
