Hi all,

Would like to ask if any build-in method(s) transforming from F5 Big IP Resource Manifest to hieradata (YAML)?

We starts including F5 Big IP to be under Puppet management and governance. We can query all existing F5 Big IP node/pool/irule/virtualserver/monitor/etc with below command: FACTERurl=https://username:Password@big-ip-hostname/ puppet resource f5node

In order to prepare YAML files effectively and avoid preparing the huge number of lines in YAML (start from scratch), we are looking for a way to quickly transform the query results to YAML files. Would like to know if you guys having similar experience, or actually Puppet Enterprise already got the function to do so. Please kindly share.

Thanks a lot!

Regards, Jessie Yeung

Would like to share my finding here in case any others would like to do similar thing.

Just discovered since Pupept 4, puppet resource got a parameter "--to_yaml" which can be used to output the resource in YAML. The problem solved.
