Installing plans

Plans are packaged in modules and deployed with Code Manager. PE includes some pre-installed plans. You can also download modules that contain plans from the Forge and write custom plans.

Important: Built-in plans can work without Code Manager; however, you must use Code Manager to install custom plans and plans from the Forge.
To install a new module containing a plan:
  1. Find the module you want on the Forge.
  2. Under Start using this module, select r10k or Code Manager as the Installation method.
  3. Using Code Manager, follow the instructions. You must use Code Manager.
In the Forge, modules containing plans have a Plans section in the README.

You can also learn how to write plans in Puppet language and check out some example plans.
