NAME

puppet-parser - Interact directly with the parser.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

puppet parser action

OPTIONS

Note that any setting that's valid in the configuration file is also a valid long argument, although it may or may not be relevant to the present action. For example, server and run_mode are valid settings, so you can specify --server <servername>, or --run_mode <runmode> as an argument.

See the configuration file documentation at https://docs.puppetlabs.com/references/stable/configuration.html for the full list of acceptable parameters. A commented list of all configuration options can also be generated by running puppet with --genconfig.
--render-as FORMAT
  The format in which to render output. The most common formats are json, s (string), yaml, and console, but other options such as dot are sometimes available.
--verbose
  Whether to log verbosely.
--debug Whether to log debug information.

ACTIONS

dump - Outputs a dump of the internal parse tree for debugging
  SYNOPSIS
puppet parser dump [--e source] [--[no-]validate] -e source| [manifest ...]
DESCRIPTION
This action parses and validates the Puppet DSL syntax without compiling a catalog or syncing any resources.
The command accepts one or more manifests (.pp) files, or an -e followed by the puppet source text. If no arguments are given, the stdin is read (unless it is attached to a terminal)
The output format of the dumped tree is intended for debugging purposes and is not API, it may change from time to time.
OPTIONS --e <source> - dump one source expression given on the command line.
--[no-]validate - Whether or not to validate the parsed result, if no-validate only syntax errors are reported
RETURNS
A dump of the resulting AST model unless there are syntax or validation errors.
validate - Validate the syntax of one or more Puppet manifests.
  SYNOPSIS
puppet parser validate [manifest] [manifest ...]
DESCRIPTION
This action validates Puppet DSL syntax without compiling a catalog or syncing any resources. If no manifest files are provided, it will validate the default site manifest.
When validating multiple issues per file are reported up to the settings of max_error, and max_warnings. The processing stops after having reported issues for the first encountered file with errors.
RETURNS
Nothing, or the first syntax error encountered.

EXAMPLES

validate

Validate the default site manifest at /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/manifests/site.pp:

$ puppet parser validate

Validate two arbitrary manifest files:

$ puppet parser validate init.pp vhost.pp

Validate from STDIN:

$ cat init.pp | puppet parser validate
