Running tasks in PE

This version is out of date. For current versions, see Puppet Enterprise support lifecycle.

Use the orchestrator to set up jobs in the console or on the command line and run Bolt tasks across systems in your infrastructure.

Running a task does not update your Puppet configuration. If you run a task that changes the state of a resource that Puppet is managing, a subsequent Puppet run changes the state of that resource back to what is defined in your Puppet configuration. For example, if you use a task to update the version of a managed package, the version of that package is reset to whatever is specified in a manifest on the next Puppet run.

Note: If you have set up compilers and you want to use tasks, you must either set primary_uris or server_list on agents to point to your compilers. This setting is described in the section on configuring compilers for orchestrator scale.
