NAME

Puppet::Orchestrator - Connects to the Puppet Orchestrator API (i.e. Puppet Tasks)

VERSION

version 0.002

SYNOPSIS

This module interacts with the Puppet Orchestrator API (i.e. Puppet Tasks)

    use Puppet::DB;
    use Puppet::Orchestrator;
    use Puppet::Classify;

    # Create a Puppet DB object
    my $puppet_db = Puppet::DB->new(
        server_name => $config->{puppetdb_host},
        server_port => $config->{puppetdb_port},
    );

    # Create a Puppet classification object
    my $classify = Puppet::Classify->new(
                      cert_name       => $config->{puppet_classify_cert},
                      server_name     => $config->{puppet_classify_host},
                      server_port     => $config->{puppet_classify_port},
                      puppet_ssl_path => $config->{puppet_ssl_path},
                      puppet_db       => $puppet_db,
                    );

    # Create a Puppet orchestrator object
    my $orchestrator = Puppet::Orchestrator->new( 
                                          cert_name       => $config->{puppet_orch_cert},
                                          server_name     => $config->{puppet_orch_host},
                                          server_port     => $config->{puppet_orch_port},
                                          puppet_ssl_path => $config->{puppet_ssl_path},
                                          puppet_db       => $puppet_db,
                                        );

    $group = "All Nodes";
    my $nodes = $classify->get_nodes_matching_group( $group );
    my $jobid = $orchestrator->submit_task( "profile::check_id", { "id" => "836" }, $nodes );

    $orchestrator->print_output_wait($jobid);

It requires the Puppet::DB module. The Puppet::Classify is recommended as it allows looking up group membership.

server_name

The puppet master that is running the Orchestrator API. Connects to localhost by default.

    $orchestrator->server_name('puppet.example.com');

server_port

Connect to the Puppet Orchestrator server on port 8143 by default - this can be overidden when consumed.

    $orchestrator->server_port(8754);

access_token

Use an access_token instead of a certificate to connect to the API. This loads the authentication token saved in your home, but it can be set manually if it is not stored there.

    say $orchestrator->access_token;

environment

The environment to look in for the task to be run - this can be overidden when consumed. Defaults to 'production'.

    $orchestrator->environment('test');

cert_name

the basename of the certificate to be used for authentication. This is a certificate that has been generated on the Puppet Master and added to the whitelist. This can be used instead of using an auth token.

    $orchestrator->cert_name('api_access');

puppet_ssl_path

Set the path to the Puppet SSL certs, it uses the Puppet enterprise path by default.

    $orchestrator->server_name('puppet.example.com');

timeout

The connection timeout. Defaults to 360 seconds.

    $orchestrator->timeout(30);

puppet_db

The puppet DB object used to interact with the Puppet DB.

    $orchestrator->puppet_db(Puppet::DB->new);

nodes

A list of nodes to perform the task on

    my $nodes = [ qw( node1 node2 ) ];
    $orchestrator->nodes($nodes);

job_id

The job ID number

    say $orchestrator->job_id;

wait_for_job

This method sleeps until the job is finished or the timeout in seconds is reached. The timeout is optional, if not specified, it will sleep indefinately.

    $orchestrator->wait_for_job( $jobid, $timeout );

submit_task

Submit a new task

    my $task_name = "package",
    my $params = {
                   action => "install",
                   name   => "httpd",
                 }
    my $nodes = [ qw( node1 node2 ) ];
    my $jobid = $orchestrator->submit_task( $task_name, $params, $nodes );

    my $timeout = 20;
    $orchestrator->wait_for_job( $jobid, $timeout );

is_job_finished

Simply returns true or false based on whether the job is finished

    say "Done" if $is_job_finished->job_id;

This will print the job output as it becomes available and wait until the job is finished.

    $orchestrator->print_output_wait;
