NAME

       puppet-key - Create, save, and remove certificate keys.

SYNOPSIS

       puppet key action [--terminus TERMINUS] [--extra HASH]

DESCRIPTION

       This subcommand manages certificate private keys. Keys are created automatically by puppet
       agent and when certificate requests are generated with ´puppet certificate  generate´;  it
       should not be necessary to use this subcommand directly.

OPTIONS

       Note  that  any  configuration  parameter 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  configuration  parameters, so you can specify
       --server <servername>, or --run_mode <runmode> as an argument.

       See          the          configuration          file           documentation           at
       http://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.

       --extra HASH
              A terminus can take additional arguments to refine the operation, which are  passed
              as  an  arbitrary  hash to the back-end. Anything passed as the extra value is just
              send direct to the back-end.

       --terminus TERMINUS
              Indirector faces expose indirected subsystems of Puppet. These subsystems are  each
              able  to  retrieve  and alter a specific type of data (with the familiar actions of
              find, search, save, and destroy) from an arbitrary number of pluggable backends. In
              Puppet parlance, these backends are called terminuses.

              Almost  all  indirected  subsystems  have  a  rest terminus that interacts with the
              puppet master´s data. Most of them have additional  terminuses  for  various  local
              data  models,  which  are  in  turn  used by the indirected subsystem on the puppet
              master whenever it receives a remote request.

              The terminus for an action is often determined by context, but  occasionally  needs
              to  be  set  explicitly.  See  the  "Notes" section of this face´s manpage for more
              details.

ACTIONS

       destroy - Delete an object.
              SYNOPSIS

              puppet key destroy [--terminus TERMINUS] [--extra HASH] key

              DESCRIPTION

              Delete an object.

       find - Retrieve an object by name.
              SYNOPSIS

              puppet key find [--terminus TERMINUS] [--extra HASH] key

              DESCRIPTION

              Retrieve an object by name.

       info - Print the default terminus class for this face.
              SYNOPSIS

              puppet key info [--terminus TERMINUS] [--extra HASH]

              DESCRIPTION

              Prints the default terminus class for this  subcommand.  Note  that  different  run
              modes  may have different default termini; when in doubt, specify the run mode with
              the ´--run_mode´ option.

       save - API only: create or overwrite an object.
              SYNOPSIS

              puppet key save [--terminus TERMINUS] [--extra HASH] key

              DESCRIPTION

              API only: create or overwrite an object. As the Faces framework does not  currently
              accept  data  from STDIN, save actions cannot currently be invoked from the command
              line.

       search - Search for an object or retrieve multiple objects.
              SYNOPSIS

              puppet key search [--terminus TERMINUS] [--extra HASH] query

              DESCRIPTION

              Search for an object or retrieve multiple objects.

NOTES

       This subcommand is an indirector face, which  exposes  find,  search,  save,  and  destroy
       actions for an indirected subsystem of Puppet. Valid termini for this face include:
