This module provides a task to set up hiera-eyaml on the master. The install task installs the hiera-eyaml gem, generate keys, optionally updates the global hiera.yaml, and restarts the puppet server. There is a separate task for encrypting hiera values.
NOTE: This task is meant to be an one-time operation. If you want to manage the keys and hieradata we recommend using Puppet Code instead of this task.
This module is compatible with Puppet Enterprise and Puppet Bolt.
To run tasks with Puppet Enterprise, PE 2017.3.2 or later must be installed on the machine from which you are running task commands. Machines receiving task requests must be Puppet agents.
To run tasks with Puppet Bolt, Bolt 0.5 or later must be installed on the machine from which you are running task commands. Machines receiving task requests must have SSH or WinRM services enabled.
To run a hiera_eyaml_setup task, use the task command:
- With PE, run
puppet task run hiera_eyaml_setup --nodes neptune.
- With Bolt, run
bolt task run hiera_eyaml_setup --nodes neptune --modulepath ~/modules.
You can also run tasks in the PE console. See PE task documentation for complete information.
configure_global_hiera: Configure the global hiera. Defaults to false.
paths: Additional hiera search paths separated by commas. The default is
common.eyaml. Only used if configure_global_hiera is true.
To view the available actions and parameters, on the command line, run
puppet task show hiera_eyaml_setup or see the hiera_eyaml_setup module page on the Forge.
For a complete list of optional hiera_eyaml_setup providers that are supported, see the Puppet Types documentation.
To display help for the hiera_eyaml_setup task, run
puppet task show hiera_eyaml_setup
To show help for the task CLI, run
puppet task run --help or
bolt task run --help
What are tasks?
Modules can contain tasks that take action outside of a desired state managed by Puppet. It’s perfect for troubleshooting or deploying one-off changes, distributing scripts to run across your infrastructure, or automating changes that need to happen in a particular order as part of an application deployment.
