Puppet HTTP API: Certificate

This version of Puppet is not included in Puppet Enterprise. The latest version of PE includes Puppet 4.8.

Certificate

The certificate endpoint returns the certificate for the specified name, which might be either a standard certname or ca.

Under Puppet Server’s CA service, the environment parameter is ignored and can be omitted. Under a Rack or WEBrick Puppet master, environment is required and must be a valid environment, but it has no effect on the response.
