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.

This module provides an adapter that allows Bolt to run commands, scripts, and upload files with PE Orchestrator.

This module is intended to allow Bolt plans to be run on a Puppet Enterprise (PE) installation by those with privileged access. Someone with the ability to run commands or scripts, or upload files, fundamentally has unrestricted access to their target.


Install the Bolt shim. Using PE RBAC, grant the ability to run all tasks to those you intend to use this module.


Configure Bolt to work with PE Orchestrator and run Bolt commands.


Provides three tasks to facilitate Bolt actions: bolt_shim::command, bolt_shim::upload, and bolt_shim::script. These are not meant to be run directly.
