Puppet Plans can be scheduled using the Puppet Enterprise console, Puppet Enterprise command line, or the Puppet Enterprise REST API. In this blog post we’ll walk through how to schedule a Puppet Plan in the Puppet Enterprise console.
Table of Contents
The Puppet Enterprise console provides a simple and easy way to schedule Puppet Plans. Puppet Plans are executed or run by the Puppet Enterprise Orchestrator, and an execution is referred to as a job.
Puppet Plans were added in the 2019.2 release of Puppet Enterprise, and Puppet Enterprise 2019.8.2 extends that functionality by adding support for scheduling Puppet Plans. This enables plans to be run at some point in the future or on a recurring schedule.
Once a plan has been scheduled, there is often the need to review information about that plan or other plans. The status of a scheduled plan can be reviewed in the Puppet Enterprise console.
You can view information about the job, like when the next time the job will run, how often the job will run, the Puppet plan that will be executed, the description provided when the job was scheduled, and who created the job.
Puppet Plans provide the ability to orchestrate complex processes. The ability to schedule Plans enables you to efficiently manage environments at scale.
