Code Climate Gem Version

This is a Foreman plugin to interact with PuppetDB.

It does the following:

  • Disables hosts on PuppetDB after they are deleted in Foreman.
  • Compares nodes in PuppetDB to Hosts in Foreman.
  • Creates Hosts in Foreman from PuppetDB facts.

Feel free to raise issues, ask for features, anything, in the github repository or #theforeman IRC channel in Freenode.

Go to Administer > Settings > PuppetDB and set puppetdb_address with your PuppetDB address, puppetdb_enabled to either true or false if you want to enable or disable PuppetDB integration. Obviously you will need a PuppetDB instance at the address you provide.

Alternatively you can put your settings in config/settings.yaml. Please keep in mind these will be overwritten if changed in the application, and if the application is rebooted, YAML rules will overwrite again your manually changed settings. Hence passing your settings in this format is discouraged, but allowed.
