Hi All,

I have Puppet Master and Windows agent server. I have installed Teamcity CI application, I have to make the Teamcity below REST api automation through Puppet . Below are the API that I want to in Puppet Module, How we can do ?

  1. curl -u admin:password \ -X POST \ -d 'test-project1' \ -H 'Content-Type: text/plain' \ http://teamcity:8111/httpAuth/app/res...

  2. curl -u admin:password \ -H "Content-Type: application/xml" \ -d @vcs-root.xml \ -X POST \ http://teamcity:8111/httpAuth/app/res...

I have question, How to make it automatically through Puppet ?

What are you trying to do automatically? Have a puppet module pull from the latest from CI? Report something to CI, Trigger something? Have your CI trigger puppet? Sorry for my Teamcity rest endpoint ignorance.

You can wrap that curl command inside an Exec resource.i.e

exec { 'post_to_proj':
   commands => "'/<path_to>/curl -u admin:password -X POST \ -d test-project1  -H 'Content-Type: text/plain' http://teamcity:8111/httpAuth/app/<uri>'",
   onlyif => '<condition>',

The downside of this approach is you need to make sure that the value of onlyif parameter prevent the commands executing unnecessarily.
