      Bug Fix
    • Release Notes Summary:
      If hiera could not load a backend it would skip it with a warning. This can have serious implications on the configuration as the compilation will potentially act on data where a large portion of the data is missing.

      Description

      If hiera cannot load a backend, it logs a warning and continues.

      This is reckless behavior and can turn a users complete fleet of managed servers into pumpinks.

      Hiera must error in this case, and puppet should fail a compilation.
