Searching for Nodes by Fact
A newer version is available; see the version menu above for details.
The Inventory Search section of the Puppet Enterprise console lets you search Puppet’s inventory of node data. This search utility uses Puppet Enterprise’s central data storage layer, PuppetDB.
Using the Inventory Search
Use console’s main navigation to reach the Inventory Search section.
This field allows you to enter a fact name, a value, and a comparison operator. After you have searched for one fact, you may narrow down the search by adding additional facts.
The search results page will show a list of nodes, as well as a summary of their recent Puppet runs. You can click nodes in the list to browse to their detail pages.
To choose facts to search for, you should view the inventory data for a node that resembles the nodes you are searching for.
