Deprecated Settings

This version of Puppet is not included in Puppet Enterprise. The latest version of PE includes Puppet 4.4. A newer version is available; see the version menu above for details.

The following Puppet settings are deprecated and will be removed in Puppet 5.0.


The configtimeout setting mashed the connect and read timeouts together, and could cause erroneous timeouts if everything was working fine but Puppet was transferring a very large file.

It’s been replaced by two new settings:

  • http_connect_timeout — controls how long Puppet should attempt to make a connection. A short timeout for this is sensible, since an over-long connect time usually means something’s wrong.
  • http_read_timeout — controls how long Puppet should allow transfers to continue. It’s normal to let this last a long time or be infinite, since some things just take a while to compile or download.

The old configtimeout setting now logs a deprecation warning if it’s set, and will be removed in Puppet 5.0.
