2020-11-06: IAC Team Status Update

It was an interesting week for IAC team and we have exciting news for you.

Puppet 7 / Ruby 2.7 Certification

We are now entering the final stages of our Puppet 7 testing. With the Puppet 7 release imminent, and our Cloud CI project nearing completion, we are hoping to have Puppet 7 acceptance tests rolled out on it very soon. Before that, we are working to get unit tests running on TravisCI with Ruby 2.7.


In the 24th “everyonecancontribute” Kaeffchen (german) with dnsmichi, David Schmitt talks about the up and coming puppet 7 features and our new security and compliance focused products.

Disha’s 10th Week: PTO and First Ticket Completed

A message from our intern:

Hi all, This week I haven’t got a lot to say…. I got my first PTO in Puppet at the start of the week from Monday to Wednesday. I returned to work on Thursday morning and started doing litmus acceptance testing on the tomcat module which was the first ticket assigned to me before going on PTO. I am delighted to have it completed! I would also like to say thanks to my mentor Ciaran for a 1:1 session on how to do effective debugging of errors. Thanks Ciaran for such a useful session. That’s all for this week. Have a good weekend everyone!

Cloud CI update

As we move closer to ironing out some of the bugs we have set our targets on a couple of windows modules for the initial porting to use Cloud resources in their acceptance testing. We have started with setting up a PR for puppetlabs-acl and as soon as we are happy with the workflow puppetlabs-iis and registry will follow. For a quick glance at a demo on how this setup will help in the future please take a look at “The new Puppet Developer Experience: it’s all about you” presented at the Puppetize Digital 2020 event by Ben Ford.

Thanks to James Pogran

Many thanks to James from the Bolt team for helping us to resolve failing tests on puppetlabs-concat module.
