Puppet Bolt is an open source task runner that executes ad hoc tasks, scripts, and commands across your infrastructure and applications.

Bolt is great for troubleshooting, deploying on-demand changes, distributing scripts to run across your infrastructure, or automating changes that need to happen in a particular order as part of an application deployment.

Bolt has a command line interface and connects to remote systems with SSH and WinRM, so it doesn't require you to install any agent software. Tasks are reusable and shareable in modules on the Forge, and can be written in any scripting or programming language.

With Bolt you can:

  • Execute commands on remote systems.
  • Distribute and execute scripts written in Bash, PowerShell, Python, and other languages.
  • Run Puppet tasks or task plans on remote systems that don't have Puppet installed.
  • Use authentication methods such as passwords and public keys.

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.


This package has no dependencies.
