puppet secret_agent Man Page
Included in Puppet Enterprise 3.3. A newer version is available; see the version menu above for details.
puppet-secret_agent - Mimics puppet agent.
puppet secret_agent action
This subcommand currently functions as a proof of concept, demonstrating how the Faces API exposes Puppet's internal systems to application logic; compare the actual code for puppet agent. It will eventually replace puppet agent entirely, and can provide a template for users who wish to implement agent-like functionality with non-standard application logic.
Note that any setting that's valid in the configuration
file is also a valid long argument, although it may or may not be
relevant to the present action. For example,
run_mode are valid
settings, so you can specify
--server <servername>, or
--run_mode <runmode> as an argument.
See the configuration file documentation at
http://docs.puppetlabs.com/puppet/latest/reference/configuration.html for the
full list of acceptable parameters. A commented list of all
configuration options can also be generated by running puppet with
- --render-as FORMAT
- The format in which to render output. The most common formats are
console, but other options such as
dotare sometimes available.
- Whether to log verbosely.
- Whether to log debug information.
synchronize- Run secret_agent once.
Mimics a single run of puppet agent. This action does not currently daemonize, but can download plugins, submit facts, retrieve and apply a catalog, and submit a report to the puppet master.
Verbose logging from the completed run. When used from the Ruby API: returns a Puppet::Transaction::Report object.
This action requires that the puppet master's
auth.conffile allow save access to the
factsREST terminus. Puppet agent does not use this facility, and it is turned off by default. See http://docs.puppetlabs.com/guides/rest_auth_conf.html for more details.
Trigger a Puppet run with the configured puppet master:
$ puppet secret_agent
