What is Puppet equivalent of the 'ignore_failure' in Chef or the 'ignore_errors' in Ansible?

0 votes

I have the following piece of manifest on Puppet Master :

exec { 'DatabaseCreation':
command => '/usr/bin/mysqladmin  -u root --password="system" create gitHandson'}

When I ran puppet agent --test on Puppet Agent, an error:

Notice: /Stage[main]/Deployment/Exec[DatabaseCreation]/returns: /usr/bin/mysqladmin: CREATE DATABASE failed; error: 'Can't create database 'gitHandson'; database exists'Error: /usr/bin/mysqladmin  -u root --password="system" create gitHandson returned 1 instead of one of [0]

How do i ignore it?

There’s no need to ignore the error or the failures, there are better ways of dealing with this.

There’s no mechanism which ignores errors in puppet.

Easiest solution is to just add a &&true to the end of your command, so it will return 0 and not fail.
