Hi, i noticed, after upgrading, that the auth.cong file changed.
So, i wanted to migrate my custom auth.conf but didn't find any updated documentation.
The location should be:,
but no new auth.conf directived but the old version explained.
Since the new version is in JSON format, can i use the old parameters and convert it to JSON ?
I have a huge load of regex so please tell me how to do it.

Oh sh**, i deleted my explanation by mistake.

I hope, this will be sufficient:

        "allow" : "*",
        "match-request" : {
            "method" : "get",
            "path" : "^/file_(metadata|content)s?/hostpackages/.*",
            "query-params" : {},
            "type" : "regex"
        "name" : "host packages",
        "sort-order" : 399

Unfortunately, I don't think we have any coverage of the new Puppet Server HOCON-based "auth.conf" file format in any of the proper Puppet Enterprise documentation yet. Sorry about that. I'll check with our docs team on when we might be able to do that.

In the meantime, you might check out the open source Puppet Server documentation on this feature here. The format that you listed for your custom rule looks good to me but I'd recommend that you use a sort-order value in the range from 1 to 399 as is mentioned here in order for your custom rule to take precedence over any rules managed automatically by Puppet Enterprise.

Will take this in consideration.
