Facter 3.1 facts

asked 2016-03-08 06:14:55 -0500

According to most of the facts for Facter 3.1, ie. osfamily, they are hidden. I translate that to be deprecated, but available for compatability reasons, but these facts do not seem to be available at all. Am I missing something?

Works for me:

[root@centos-66-x64 ~]# facter -v
3.1.4 (commit c08a5ed7606b6cd8be3a146b247c03bf7213c445)
[root@centos-66-x64 ~]# facter osfamily

It works for me too. I've been troubleshooting a Forge module where case statements have the values unquoted and while troubleshooting with the facter CLI, I simply presumed that they were not getting parsed. Do you know when the quotes became mandatory?

Nope, but glad you've figured it out.
