Facter - Read multiline output from linux command

asked 2018-02-25 13:32:32 -0500

Dear All,

I am very new to puppet and facter and I am trying to create a custom fact, is it possible to store the entire output of a command (example cat /etc/fstab) in a fact?

Can someone provide an example since my attempts only tore the first line of output.

Could you update your question with what you have tried? I haven't had any trouble getting multiline output from custom facts running local commands on the boxes by following the regular documentation: https://puppet.com/docs/facter/3.9/fact_overview.html
