PUPPET-REPORT(8) Puppet manual PUPPET-REPORT(8)

NAME

puppet-report - Create, display, and submit reports.

SYNOPSIS

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

OPTIONS

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 https://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

info - Print the default terminus class for this face.
SYNOPSIS
puppet report 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: submit a report.
SYNOPSIS
puppet report save [--terminus TERMINUS] [--extra HASH] report
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.
RETURNS
Nothing.
submit - API only: submit a report with error handling.
SYNOPSIS
puppet report submit [--terminus TERMINUS] [--extra HASH] report
DESCRIPTION
API only: Submits a report to the puppet master. This action is essentially a shortcut and wrapper for the save action with the rest terminus, and provides additional details in the event of a failure.

EXAMPLES

save
From the implementation of puppet report submit (API example):
begin Puppet::Transaction::Report.indirection.terminus_class = :rest Puppet::Face[:report, "0.0.1"].save(report) Puppet.notice "Uploaded report for #{report.name}" rescue => detail Puppet.log_exception(detail, "Could not send report: #{detail}") end
submit
API example:report = Puppet::Face[:catalog, ´0.0.1´].apply Puppet::Face[:report, ´0.0.1´].submit(report) return report

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:
msgpack
processor
rest
yaml
