5.0 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

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.

Tasks in this module release

cache_remove

Removes/clears the target's update cache. For RHEL/CentOS this means a `yum clean all`. For Debian this means a `apt update`. For Windows this means a Windows Update refresh.

cache_update

Updates the targets update cache. For RHEL/CentOS this means a `yum clean expire-cache`. For Debian this means a `apt update`. For Windows this means a Windows Update refresh.

puppet_facts

Gather system facts using 'puppet facts'. Puppet agent MUST be installed for this to work.

reboot_required

Checks if a reboot is pending
