The Puppet primary server is available as a repository type. See Artifact Repository for a complete list of available types for repositories.

Workload Manager does not provision or manage the Puppet primary server either directly or indirectly. These servers must be pre-configured before adding either as repositories in Workload Manager.

The service script installs, configures, starts, and stops the Puppet Agent. Each service requires the information to setup the Puppet Agent and configure the Puppet role and environment name.

General Settings

Maximum Number of NodesDefault = 2. The maximum number of nodes within each tier in use to ensure manual or automatic scaling.

Puppet Servers

Required. Select the configured Puppet server repository (for example, Puppet primary server).

Puppet Role

Required. Configure the application using the configured Puppet role.

Puppet Environment

Required. The service script leverages the function of Puppet Agent to configure the environment and deploy the application.

To associate the Puppet repository (when you Manage Projects and Phases) with the Workload Manager deployment environment, use the %DEP_ENV_NAME% macro. When a user provides this macro, the macro is replaced with the environment name dynamically at runtime. When users configure the environment, they have the option to provide additional granular parameters to complete this configuration. See Pre-Defined Parameters and Using Parametersfor additional context.

Agent Run Interval

Required. Identifies the frequency at which the service script must leverage the function of Puppet Agent when deploying the application.
