I want to get all classes list that are available under all the modules. Is there any command to get the list?

Thanks for the solutions. But, I am just looking more for a puppet command, instead of a shell command.

you can find the list of classes of all the modules in classes.txt file. Get the location of classes.txt file using classfile attribute present in puppet.conf file.

command for viewing the puppet configuration,

# puppet config print all


# puppet config print classfile

The two above commands returned misleading info (```/var/lib/puppet/state/classes.txt``` is that a default?) --whereas the correct file location was ```/var/lib/puppet/classes.txt``` for my puppet 3.2.3.

The command to acquire the correct path is 'puppet config print --section agent classfile' Note that for the yum packages, puppetlabs delivers a different default in the puppet.conf So on rhel-based systems the path is by default set to /var/lib/puppet/classes.txt

Go to your module directory and execute the command :

  find / -name '*.pp' -exec awk '/^class [a-zA-Z]/ {print $2}' {} \;

It will print all the classes in the respective module.

Or you have another way to to find classes by puppet doc as

 puppet doc --outputdir /root/puppetdoc --mode rdoc --manifestdir /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/manifests/ --modulepath /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/modules/

but in this case you will get output in html format.

I hope this will help you.
