Installing tasks and plans

Puppet Enterprise comes with some pre-installed tasks, but you must install all plans or any other tasks you want to use.

Note: Many of the modules that come pre-installed with the open-source Bolt tool will not be available by default in PE.
PE comes with the following tasks already installed:
  • package - Inspect, install, upgrade, and manage packages.
  • service - Start, stop, restart, and check the status of a service.
  • facter_task - Inspect the value of system facts.
  • puppet_conf - Inspect Puppet agent configuration settings.

Tasks and plans are packaged in Puppet modules.

Tasks can be installed from the Forge and managed with a Puppetfile and Code Manager.

Plans must be installed using Code Manager. See Plan caveats and limitations for information about code deployment for plans.

Additional modules that include helpful task and plan content include:
