       puppet-plugin - Interact with the Puppet plugin system.


       puppet plugin action


       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.


       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.


       download - Download plugins from the puppet master.

              puppet plugin download

              way  will  be used in all subsequent Puppet activity. This action modifies files on


              A list of the files downloaded, or a confirmation that no  files  were  downloaded.
              When  used from the Ruby API, this action returns an array of the files downloaded,
              which will be empty if none were retrieved.
