Puppet Man Pages

Included in Puppet Enterprise 3.3. A newer version is available; see the version menu above for details.

Puppet’s command line tools consist of a single puppet binary with many subcommands. The following subcommands are available in this version of Puppet:

Core Tools

These subcommands form the core of Puppet’s tool set, and every user should understand what they do.

Occasionally Useful Subcommands

Many or most users will need to use these subcommands at some point, but they aren’t needed for daily use the way the core tools are.

Niche Subcommands

Most users can ignore these subcommands. They’re only useful for certain niche workflows, and most of them are interfaces to Puppet’s internal subsystems.

Deprecated Subcommands

These subcommands were needed for older functionality, and will be removed in a future version of Puppet.
