puppet config Man Page

Included in Puppet Enterprise 3.2. A newer version is available; see the version menu above for details.

NAME

puppet-config - Interact with Puppet's configuration options.

SYNOPSIS

puppet config action

OPTIONS

Note that any configuration parameter 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, server and run_mode are valid configuration parameters, 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 --genconfig.

--render-as FORMAT
The format in which to render output. The most common formats are json, s (string), yaml, and console, but other options such as dot are sometimes available.
--verbose
Whether to log verbosely.
--debug
Whether to log debug information.

ACTIONS

print - Examine Puppet's current configuration settings.

SYNOPSIS

puppet config print (all | setting [setting ...]

DESCRIPTION

Prints the value of a single configuration option or a list of configuration options.

This action is an alternate interface to the information available with puppet <subcommand> --configprint.

RETURNS

A single value when called with one config setting, and a list of settings and values when called with multiple options or "all."

NOTES

By default, this action reads the configuration in agent mode. Use the '--run_mode' and '--environment' flags to examine other configuration domains.

EXAMPLES

print

Get puppet's runfile directory:

$ puppet config print rundir

Get a list of important directories from the master's config:

$ puppet config print all --run_mode master | grep -E "(path|dir)"
