Producers endpoint

Producers are the Puppet Servers that send reports, catalogs, and factsets to PuppetDB.

When PuppetDB stores a report, catalog, or factset, it keeps track of the producer of the report/catalog/factset. PuppetDB also keeps a list of producers it has seen. You can query this list by making an HTTP request to the /producers endpoint.


This will return all producers known to PuppetDB.

URL parameters

  • query: optional. A JSON array containing the query in prefix notation. If not provided, all results will be returned. See the sections below for the supported operators and fields. For general info about queries, see our guide to query structure.

Query fields

  • name (string): the certname of a producer.

Subquery relationships

The following list contains related entities that can be used to constrain the result set by using implicit subqueries. For more information, consult the documentation for subqueries.

  • factsets: factsets received for a producer.

  • reports: reports received for a producer.

  • catalogs: catalogs received for a producer.

Response format

The response is a JSON array of hashes, where each hash has the form:

{"name": <string>}

The array is unsorted.


You can use curl to query information about nodes:

curl 'http://localhost:8080/pdb/query/v4/producers'


This will return the name of the producer if it currently exists in PuppetDB.

URL parameters / query operators / query fields

This route supports the same URL parameters and query fields/operators as the '/pdb/query/v4/producers' route above.

Response format

The response is a JSON hash of the form:

{"name": <string>}


You can use curl to query information about nodes like so:

curl 'http://localhost:8080/pdb/query/v4/producers/'

  "name" : ""


These routes are identical to issuing a request to /pdb/query/v4/[catalogs|factsets|reports], with a query parameter of ["=","producer","<PRODUCER>"]. All query parameters and route suffixes from the original routes are supported. The result format is also the same. Additional query parameters are ANDed with the producer clause. See /pdb/query/v4/catalogs, /pdb/query/v4/factsets, or /pdb/query/v4/reports for more information.


This query endpoint supports paged results via the common PuppetDB paging URL parameters. For more information, please see the documentation on paging.
