Upload modules

To help fix vulnerabilities on nodes, upload modules published on the Puppet Forge. The module must contain a task.

Modules are self-contained bundles of code and data. Each module manages a specific task in your infrastructure, such as installing and configuring a piece of software. For more information, see Module fundamentals.
  1. Download a module from the Forge.
  2. On the sidebar, click Manage tasks, and then click Add tasks.
  3. Click Upload a module, choose the module you just downloaded from the Forge.
    Important: The name of your module needs to follow the default download format.
  4. Click Confirm details.
    Note: If the module name is the same as a previously uploaded module, a warning message appears. Select the check box on this page if you want to overwrite the tasks in the pre-existing module with those in the new module.
  5. Click Save task.

    The Settings page appears, and your tasks from the module are now available and are listed in the Tasks table.

    Important: Your module must not exceed 1Mb in size.
