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


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


       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.


       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


       destroy - Delete an object.

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


              Delete an object.

       find - Retrieve an object by name.

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


              Retrieve an object by name.

       info - Print the default terminus class for this face.

              puppet key 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 key 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

       search - Search for an object or retrieve multiple objects.

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


              Search for an object or retrieve multiple objects.


       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:
