In Chef 12 and Chef 13, the following code would work, allowing the
file resource to access the
property :my_content, String action :doit do file "/tmp/file.xy" do content my_content end end
However, this is now deprecated, and will be removed in Cher 14 in lieu of referring to properties by i.e.
property :my_content, String action :doit do file "/tmp/file.xy" do - content my_content + content new_resource.my_content end end
