Puppet apply is never returning a usable exit code. This is partly because of warnings which appear to be treated as errors.
puppet apply (without —detailed-exitcodes) This returns false positives. It returns 0 even if there is an error running the manifest. It only appears to return an error code if there is a syntax error.
puppet apply —detailed-exitcodes This is not very usable because successful runs have non-zero returns (0 or 2). It is still not usable with a wrapper because some warnings are treated as errors. This means I am getting a 4 or 6 return code even on successful runs. The warning I am seeing is:
