puppet parser Man Page

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

NAME

puppet-parser - Interact directly with the parser.

SYNOPSIS

puppet parser 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.
