Welcome to the Community!

I may recommend checking out some of the initial training at to get familiar with some of the ins and outs of puppet. You can return there, search this 'ask puppet' answers area, or check stack overflow for help. There are also #puppet and #voxpupuli channels on freenode on irc, as well as a puppet slack server ( ).

I would like to remind you that puppet and other config management tools are just that - a tool. If you don't know how to install something by hand, you are going to have trouble automating it. You can use some of the community provided modules to set up a basic configuration, but you'll need to understand the parameters and features of the application that you wish to install.

Once you've begun to master the basics of puppet, I would suggest checking the forge ( for a module that will help set up what you want to configure, for example, searching for jira - .

Looking at Approved status, version, etc - It seems like the highest rated module is the one maintained by Vox pupli, the puppet community - .Familiarize yourself with the readme, install it on your test servers/vms, and see if you can run through a simple installation. You can see they have a 'Beginning with jira' section, and an 'Upgrading Jira' section following that.

If you have any specific questions about problems you run into, feel free to open up a new issue here. You can reach out to people in IRC or Slack for more general help, and more of a real time, steer you in the right direction kind of assistance.
