It sounds like you may be referring to what used to be Live Management, which has been deprecated. To trigger a puppet run on an agent from the master, login to your puppet master, and sudo to the peadmin user account. From there, use mco to trigger a puppet run on a specified agent as follows, where puppetcertname is the agent you wish to trigger the run.

peadmin@pemaster01:~$ mco puppet runonce -I puppet_cert_name

There are other options to trigger runs across multiple systems using other filters. Refer to this link.

Initiating a puppet run from the console in v2015.2.3 is not available. It is, however, a new feature made available in v2015.3 Have a look at the release notes ->
