Description

When an ssh_authorized_key resource type is applied multiple times, the authorized_keys grows with keys being repeated. Since operations should be idempotent, this procedure needs to include logic that checks for the existence of the key before adding it.

Can you please post your resource that is causing the duplication and the duplicate lines in your authorized key file? In general the type is idempotent. Puppet will check the existance of a key by checking the comment field (that is the title of the resource).

Thank you. Knowing that it is based on the comment that the key is checked solved my problem. I already had a comment tailing the key. So, it was probably not detecting as duplicate.
