Puppet 4.10 reference manual

Puppet’s command line tools consist of a single puppet binary with many subcommands. The following subcommands are available in this version of Puppet:

Core Tools

These subcommands form the core of Puppet’s tool set, and every user should understand what they do.

Occasionally Useful Subcommands

Many or most users will need to use these subcommands at some point, but they aren’t needed for daily use the way the core tools are.

Niche Subcommands

Most users can ignore these subcommands. They’re only useful for certain niche workflows, and most of them are interfaces to Puppet’s internal subsystems.

Unknown or New Subcommands

These subcommands have not yet been added to any of the categories above.
