Installing tasks and plans

This version is out of date. For current versions, see Puppet Enterprise support lifecycle.
This release is no longer generally available due to an issue with upgrade

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

Note: Many of the modules that come pre-installed with the open-source Bolt tool will not be available by default in PE.
PE comes with the following tasks already installed:
  • package - Inspect, install, upgrade, and manage packages.
  • service - Start, stop, restart, and check the status of a service.
  • facter_task - Inspect the value of system facts.
  • puppet_conf - Inspect Puppet agent configuration settings.

Tasks and plans are packaged in Puppet modules, which you can install directly from the Forge or install and manage them with a Puppetfile using Code Manager. See Managing environment content with a Puppetfile for more information on declaring modules in your Puppetfile.

Additional modules that include helpful task and plan content include:
