Running jobs on the command line

The orchestrator on the command line gives you the ability to set up jobs and enforce agent runs against a PQL nodes query, a list of nodes, or application targets. For example, did you just add a new class parameter to a set of nodes, or did you just deploy code to a new environment? Use this command to run Puppet and enforce those changes.

The orchestrator command line tool includes the puppet job, puppet task, and puppet app commands.

  • puppet job

    The puppet job command is the main mechanism to control Puppet jobs. For a complete reference of the puppet job command, see:

    • Checking job plans on the CLI
    • Running jobs on the CLI
    • Reviewing jobs on the CLI
  • puppet app

    The puppet app tool lets you view the application models and application instances you’ve written and stored on your Puppet master. For a complete reference of the puppet app command, see Reviewing applications on the CLI.
