Puppet HTTP API: File Bucket File
Included in Puppet Enterprise 2017.1. A newer version is available; see the version menu above for details.
File Bucket File
file_bucket_file endpoint manages the contents of files in the
file bucket. All access to files is managed with the md5 checksum of the
file contents, represented as
:md5. Where used,
:filename means the
full absolute path of the file on the client system. This is usually
optional and used as an error check to make sure correct file is
retrieved. The environment is required in all requests but ignored, as
the file bucket does not distinguish between environments.
Retrieve the contents of a file.
GET /puppet/v3/file_bucket_file/:md5?environment=:environment GET /puppet/v3/file_bucket_file/:md5/:original_path?environment=:environment
This will return the contents of the file if it’s present. If
:original_path is provided then the contents will only be sent if the
file was uploaded with the same path at some point.
Check if a file is present in the filebucket
HEAD /puppet/v3/file_bucket_file/:md5?environment=:environment HEAD /puppet/v3/file_bucket_file/:md5/:original_path?environment=:environment
This behaves identically to find, only returning headers.
Save a file to the filebucket
PUT /puppet/v3/file_bucket_file/:md5?environment=:environment PUT /puppet/v3/file_bucket_file/:md5/:original_path?environment=:environment
The body should contain the file contents. This saves the file using the
md5 sum of the file contents. If
:original_path is provided, it adds
the path to a list for the given file. If the md5 sum in the request is
incorrect, the file will be instead saved under the correct checksum.
Supported HTTP Methods

file_bucket_file response body is not structured data according to any standard scheme such as
json/yaml, so no schema is applicable.
