Installing tasks

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

Tasks are packaged in Puppet modules and can be installed from the Forge, then managed with a Puppetfile and Code Manager.

To install a new task, select the desired install method under Start using this module on the module's page in the Forge and follow the instructions.

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.
