How does puppet decide if a node is active?
I'm trying to change default behavior in puppet when a Notify resource is applied on a node. Current state (3.8) is that whenever the client is applying a simply Notify message, the client will send a report with state "Active". This is somewhat misleading because nothing really changed on the node.
Is it possible to change this so that puppet will not make a Notify resource change node status to "Active"? Thanks.
EDIT #1 I'm using Puppet 3.8 + Foreman 1.9.2. Puppet is sending agent reports to Foreman, and Foreman shows the Notify resource as being active \ applied \ changed. When using the "warning" function in a manifest, the message will not be included in the report. (only in the puppetmaster log file) There's a closed bug in Foreman for this issue, you can find it here
