encore/patching — version 1.1.1 Jun 9th 2020

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
