       puppet-facts - Retrieve and store facts.


       puppet facts action [--terminus _TERMINUS] [--extra HASH]


       This subcommand manages facts, which are collections of normalized system information used
       by Puppet. It can read facts directly from the  local  system  (with  the  default  facter


       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  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.

              Whether to log verbosely.

              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


       find - Retrieve a node's facts.

              puppet facts [--terminus _TERMINUS] [--extra HASH] [node_certname]


              Retrieve a node's facts.


              A hash containing some metadata and (under the "values" key) the set of  facts  for
              the requested node. When used from the Ruby API: A Puppet::Node::Facts object.

              RENDERING ISSUES: Facts cannot currently be rendered as a string; use yaml or json.


              When using the facter terminus, the host argument is ignored.

       info - Print the default terminus class for this face.

              puppet facts info [--terminus _TERMINUS] [--extra HASH]


              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.

              puppet facts save [--terminus _TERMINUS] [--extra HASH] key


              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

       upload - Upload local facts to the puppet master.

              puppet facts upload [--terminus _TERMINUS] [--extra HASH]


              Reads  facts  from  the  local  system  using  the  facter terminus, then saves the
              returned facts using the rest terminus.




              This action requires that the puppet master's auth.conf  file  allow  PUT  or  save
              access to the /puppet/v3/facts API endpoint.

              For details on configuring Puppet Server's auth.conf, see:


              For legacy Rack-based Puppet Masters, see:




       Get facts from the local system:

       $ puppet facts find


       Upload facts:

       $ puppet facts upload


       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:
