Custom facts not available to non-root users in facter 1.7.5


In facter 1.7.5, custom facts are not available to non-root users. The solution is to add the following to the user’s ~/.bashrc

alias facter="facter --external-dir=/etc/facter/facts.d"

This change was made some time after facter 1.7.2.
