Connecting Bolt to Puppet Enterprise

If you're a Puppet Enterprise (PE) customer, you can connect Bolt to PE using the Puppet Communications Protocol (PCP) transport. However, in most cases this is not necessary, because tasks and plans are already supported from the console or the command line using PE orchestrator. Wherever possible, we recommend using PE tasks and plans instead of connecting Bolt to PE over PCP.

For more information on tasks and plans in PE, see Orchestrating tasks and plans.

For information on connecting Bolt to PE using the bolt-shim module, see Connecting Bolt to PE.
