Included in Puppet Enterprise 2015.3. 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.
cfacter setting was used to enable pre-releases of native Facter (distributed as the “cfacter” package) prior to the release of Facter 3.0. Now that native Facter is the default in puppet-agent packages, this setting has no purpose.
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It’s been replaced by two new settings: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.
configtimeout setting now logs a deprecation warning if it’s set, and will be removed in Puppet 5.0.
ignorecache setting has no effect, and has been dead code since Puppet 0.24.5.
This setting does not log a deprecation warning. Once it is removed in Puppet 5.0, Puppet will fail to start if you pass
--ignorecache as a command line argument.
