PE 2017.3

I have a requirement where I need to use puppet task and manifests both. E.g. I need to update config files and execute some scripts. Do we have functionality using which we can do following:

1. Call manifest from puppet task or vice-versa?
2. Use output from one task as an input for another tasks?
3. Can we set the order/sequence of Puppet task execution?

Please let me know if we can leverage more out of Puppet task feature.

  1. You can run puppet from a task - so, yes
  2. That is what a (Task) Plan is - you can do this with Bolt. Plans are written in the puppet language
  3. That is what a Plan is for (executing tasks in some order)

I guess, Bolt is not part of PE. I understand what Bolt does and the same functionality can be achieved in PE? I hope in near future features like Bolt would be part of PE to implement the process of deployment and configuration together.

you can use the 'puppet task' command to do what 'bolt' does, with PE iirc from watching pconf talks
