Review activity

Activity values across all the Puppet Enterprise (PE) instances integrated within a workspace are shown on the Activity report.

Activity report

The activity report gives you a federated view of activity and changes that happen across your Puppet Enterprise instances. By default the report gathers data over the previous seven days. You can change this time period by selecting a start and end date.

You can configure the activity report using the APIs available under the ValueReportingV1 tag in the public Continuous Delivery API.

By default, the activity report shows information about:

Values over time

  • NODES PATCHED – Number of nodes that have been patched.
  • TASKS RAN – Number of times a task has been run.
  • PLANS RAN – Number of times a plan has been run.
  • CORRECTIVE CHANGES – Number of times a corrective change has been made.
  • INTENTIONAL CHANGES – Number of times an intentional change has been made.
  • RESOURCE CHANGES IDENTIFIED – Number of potential impacts that new Puppet code can have on your managed infrastructure before you merge the new code. This is a premium feature of Continuous Delivery. If you have not yet purchased a license for this feature, a lock icon appears here.

Time saved

Bar chart that depicts the number of hours saved per value. Each value has a default of 90 minutes associated with it to estimate the time saved. You can change the default via an API. Task and plan inputs can be granular to provide different inputs per task and per plan.

Automated values

  • MODULES DEPLOYED – Average number of modules deployed.
  • PUPPET SOURCES MANAGED – Average number of Puppet sources being managed.
  • NODES CHECKED FOR PATCHES – Average number of nodes checked for patches.
