Installing tasks

Puppet Enterprise comes with some pre-installed Bolt tasks, but you must install or write any other tasks you want to use.

PE comes with facter_task, package, service, and puppet_conf tasks. Use the package task to inspect, install, upgrade, and manage packages. Use the service task to start, stop, restart, and check the status of services running on your systems.

Tasks and are packaged in Puppet modules, so you can install them directly from the Forge or install and manage them with a Puppetfile and Code Manager.

If you plan to run tasks from the console, those tasks must be installed into the production environment.
