Build Status Puppet Forge

Puppet Hiera Lookup Task

This module adds a Task for performing hiera lookups.

For Puppet Enterprise users, this means you can allow users or admins to perform hiera lookups without giving them SSH access to your Puppet master! The ability to run this task remotely or via the Console is gated and tracked by the RBAC system built in to PE.

Requirements

This module is compatible with Puppet Enterprise and Puppet Bolt.

Usage
