Puppet Man Pages
Included in Puppet Enterprise 2016.1. A newer version is available; see the version menu above for details.
Puppet’s command line tools consist of a single
puppet binary with many subcommands. The following subcommands are available in this version of Puppet:
These subcommands form the core of Puppet’s tool set, and every user should understand what they do.
Occasionally Useful Subcommands
Many or most users will need to use these subcommands at some point, but they aren’t needed for daily use the way the core tools are.
- puppet config
- puppet describe
- puppet device
- puppet doc
- puppet epp
- puppet help
- puppet man
- puppet node
- puppet parser
- puppet plugin
Most users can ignore these subcommands. They’re only useful for certain niche workflows, and most of them are interfaces to Puppet’s internal subsystems.
