When identifying modules on Puppet Forge or on the command line, the indentifier
takes the form
author/name. For example:
“author” and “name” fields are used individually as part of the unit key.
- Module’s author, in the form of a “username” on Puppet Forge. For example, the contributor “Puppet Labs” has the username “puppetlabs”.
- Module’s name only, not including the author section. For the module identified as “puppetlabs/stdlib”, this field would be “stdlib”.
- Module’s version, which according to Puppet Labs’ documentation, should follow Semantic Versioning.
- List of dictionaries describing modules on which this module depends. Each
dictionary has a key
namewhich includes the full
author/namenotation, and a key

- Name of the license with which the module is distributed.
- URL to a web site for the module.
- URL to the module’s source.
