Hi, I have a nested hiera hash like the following:

    hostname: host1
    http_port: 3011
    hostname: host2
    http_port: 3011

I want to store the value "node1,node2" in a variable. Can you please suggest a good way of doing that? is there a hiera function i can use to get that information.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Thanks, Sarat.

You can use puppetlabs/stdlib:

puppet module install puppetlabs/stdlib

You can then make use of the 'keys' function.

$my_keys = keys($uat_rev3)
