I am trying to create a defined type where service A has multiple properties. When I try to run it with puppet apply , I get "duplicate parameter" error. I have to put all the parameters in a manifest to make this service run. What can I do in this situation?

Can you put the code and the error into your post, or into a gist/pastie and put the link in your question?

I think you need to make the property an array, rather than mention it multiple times. If you want a parameter to have multi values, you cannot specify it multiple times.

For example, say this is your define:

define foo($param='') {
  notify { "notify-${name}": message=>"I have param ${param}"; }

Then, you can do this:

foo { myname: param=>'bar'; }

but you CANNOT do this:

foo { myname: param=>'bar', param=>'baz'; }

Now, if you use an array paramter like this:

define foo($param=[]) {
  $allparam = join($param, ",")
  notify { "notify-${name}": message=>"I have param ${allparam}"; }

then you can send single parameters....

foo { myname ...
