NAME

puppet-plugin - Interact with the Puppet plugin system.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

puppet plugin action

DESCRIPTION

This subcommand provides network access to the puppet master's store of plugins.

The puppet master serves Ruby code collected from the lib directories of its modules. These plugins can be used on agent nodes to extend Facter and implement custom types and providers. Plugins are normally downloaded by puppet agent during the course of a run.

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.
