SYNOPSISpuppet parser action
OPTIONSNote that any setting that's valid in the configuration file is also a valid long argument, although it may or may not be relevant to the present action. For example, server and run_mode are valid settings, so you can specify --server <servername>, or --run_mode <runmode> as an argument.
See the configuration file documentation at https://docs.puppetlabs.com/references/stable/configuration.html for the full list of acceptable parameters. A commented list of all configuration options can also be generated by running puppet with --genconfig.
- --render-as FORMAT
- The format in which to render output. The most common formats are json, s (string), yaml, and console, but other options such as dot are sometimes available.
- Whether to log verbosely.
- Whether to log debug information.
- dump - Outputs a dump of the internal parse tree for debugging
- puppet parser dump [--e source] [--[no-]validate] -e source| [manifest ...]
- This action parses and validates the Puppet DSL syntax without compiling a catalog or syncing any resources.
- The command accepts one or more manifests (.pp) files, or an -e followed by the puppet source text. If no arguments are given, the stdin is read (unless it is attached to a terminal)
- The output format of the dumped tree is intended for debugging purposes and is not API, it may change from time to time.
- OPTIONS --e <source> - dump one source expression given on the command line.
- --[no-]validate - Whether or not to validate the parsed result, if no-validate only syntax errors are reported
- A dump of the resulting AST model unless there are syntax or validation errors.
- validate - Validate the syntax of one or more Puppet manifests.
- puppet parser validate [manifest] [manifest ...]
- This action validates Puppet DSL syntax without compiling a catalog or syncing any resources. If no manifest files are provided, it will validate the default site manifest.
- When validating multiple issues per file are reported up to the settings of max_error, and max_warnings. The processing stops after having reported issues for the first encountered file with errors.
- Nothing, or the first syntax error encountered.
Validate the default site manifest at /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/manifests/site.pp:
$ puppet parser validate
Validate two arbitrary manifest files:
$ puppet parser validate init.pp vhost.pp
Validate from STDIN:
$ cat init.pp | puppet parser validate
