Explore the concept of managing data and facts by using Hiera and Facter in this 13-video course. Learn essential characteristics and features of Puppet Bolt, the concept of jobs in Puppet, and its potential challenges as a continuous delivery tool for DevOps. Learners watch demonstrations of configuring and working with EDA software tools to manage data, and installing and configuring Puppet Bolt—an open-source tool automating manual steps with plans and tasks. Install and work with continuous delivery for Puppet Enterprise (PE) to set up, build, and configure Continuous Delivery pipelines. Then use the impact analysis tool to measure impacts of recent deployments of Puppet codes. Other key topics covered here include Puppet data management with the reusable Hiera configuration file for Puppet code; fact management with the stand-alone Facter tool that gathers complete information about the system; how to install continuous delivery for PE; and Puppet's disadvantages. The concluding exercise asks learners to list different types of facts in Puppet, install Bolt to automate manual task, and execute Bolt command and task on host.
