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 task, and
puppet app commands.
puppet jobcommand is the main mechanism to control Puppet jobs. For a complete reference of the
puppet jobcommand, see:
- Checking job plans on the CLI
- Running jobs on the CLI
- Reviewing jobs on the CLI
puppet apptool 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 appcommand, see Reviewing applications on the CLI.
