puppet-script - Run a puppet manifests as a script without compiling a catalog
Runs a puppet language script without compiling a catalog.
puppet script [-h|--help] [-V|--version] [-d|--debug] [-v|--verbose] [-e|--execute] [-l|--logdest syslog|eventlog|FILE|console] [--noop] file
This is a standalone puppet script runner tool; use it to run puppet code without compiling a catalog. When provided with a modulepath, via command line or config file, puppet script can load functions, types, tasks and plans from modules.
Note that any setting that´s valid in the configuration file is also a valid long argument. For example, ´environment´ is a valid setting, so you can specify ´--environment mytest´ as an argument. See the configuration file documentation at https://docs.puppetlabs.com/puppet/latest/reference/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´. --debug Enable full debugging. --help Print this help message --logdest Where to send log messages. Choose between ´syslog´ (the POSIX syslog service), ´eventlog´ (the Windows Event Log), ´console´, or the path to a log file. Defaults to ´console´. A path ending with ´.json´ will receive structured output in JSON format. The log file will not have an ending ´]´ automatically written to it due to the appending nature of logging. It must be appended manually to make the content valid JSON. --noop Use ´noop´ mode where Puppet runs in a no-op or dry-run mode. This is useful for seeing what changes Puppet will make without actually executing the changes. Applies to tasks only. --execute Execute a specific piece of Puppet code --verbose Print extra information.
$ puppet script -l /tmp/manifest.log manifest.pp $ puppet script --modulepath=/root/dev/modules -e ´notice("hello world")´
