I have specific hiera data that I would like to reference in my modules. For example have a variable have a different value from production versus non-production.

How do I made a reference in my module to a specific value in hiera? For example if I have a value

root_pw = some_dev_pass


root_pw = some_prod_pass

If I need to reference this variable in my module how do I do this?

The documentation can be found at https://docs.puppet.com/hiera/

Have you looked through the Getting Started with Hiera documentation for your version?

This post from the puppet blog in 2015 is still relevant, and is a pretty good article to follow
