vRealize Automation Plug-in Starter Content Pack for vRA 7.4 and Puppet plug-in for vRealize 3.1


This repository provides "batteries-included" starter Puppet content for the Puppet plug-in for vRealize Automation 3.1. It shows you how Puppet code is organized to make self-service provisioning easy and can create 5 different machine types out of the box:

  • Linux base server
  • Linux MySQL server
  • Linux web server
  • Windows base server
  • Windows web server

With vRA 7.3 & 7.4 and the Puppet plug-in for vRealize Automation 3.1, building Puppet Enterprise blueprints is easier than ever with PE components now built directly into the vRA Enterprise GUI. While creating blueprints, you simply drag and drop the Puppet component onto the blueprint and fill in a couple of text boxes. No need to jump back and forth from vRA to vRO to get set up. Even better, Puppet role classes are now read dynamically from your Puppet Server, so you need only pick from the list instead of typing classes out manually.

Getting started

Here's your high-level plan to get started with vRA 7.3 & 7.4 Enterprise to take advantage of the new GUI Puppet components:

Note: if you are using vRealize 6.x or 7.0 through 7.2, then use the "iaas_eventbroker" branch of this repo.

vRA 7.3 Puppet docs:

Please see the Puppet plug-in for vRealize documentation for more detailed information.
