Now that we have informed Puppet which commands are used to interact with the system, the next step is to implement the internals of our providers. Properties and Providers Previously, we discussed how Puppet’s resource abstraction layer provides a clear sep‐ aration between types and providers. Properties are the key to this separation. They describe the attributes of a resource that its providers are responsible for managing. For each property of a type, its providers are responsible for two actions: • Retrieving the current state of that property • Updating the resource state to match the desired state (as described by the resource) Each of these actions is generally implemented as a single method per property.

However, gems would never be preferred as the default over the system’s native package manager. Gems can only be managed by explicitly setting the provider as below: package { 'json': ensure => present, provider => 'gem', } Providers can also be confined based on whether certain commands are available in the current system PATH by using the commands method. This is covered in more detail in the next section, because it does much more than just confine a provider based on the availability of a command.

Instances method and demonstrates how it enables providers to discover resource instances of a specific type on the current system. prefetch, which is used to cache the state of all managed re‐ sources of a given type in the catalog. prefetch. Table 3-2 shows which of these methods is invoked for commonly used Puppet actions. Table 3-2.
