Introducing ad hoc task automation with Puppet

Live webinar took place on 7 November 2017.

Puppet is great at enabling you to model the desired end state of your infrastructure and continually enforce that state on your behalf. But sometimes you just need to do things that don’t fit neatly into a model-driven approach, whether it’s troubleshooting systems, deploying point-in-time changes, or executing sequenced actions as part of a deployment workflow.

Enter Puppet Tasks, a new family of offerings that make it easy to automate ad hoc tasks in an imperative way across your infrastructure and applications. Puppet Tasks encompasses both Puppet Bolt™, a new agentless, open source task runner to execute ad hoc commands, and Puppet Enterprise Task Management™, which adds scale, governance and flexibility, and team-oriented workflows for task automation.

In this webinar, you'll see how Puppet Tasks makes it easy to:

  • Troubleshoot and deploy one-off changes to systems.

  • Automate basic configuration of systems, VMs or network devices without needing to install any agents.

  • Improve cross-team collaboration, standardize software delivery practices and eliminate reliance on a patchwork set of runbook-style automation tools.
