      We suspect that many users have run into this based on the number of watchers and the age of this ticket. There are workarounds to sign the CSR and then clean the resulting cert but it would be much cleaner and less frustrating to allow deletion/rejection/whatever of the CSR.

    • Bug Fix
    • Fixed a bug where running `puppet cert clean` would fail to clean a certificate signing request because it would try to revoke the cert. `puppet cert clean` can now correctly clean certificate signing requests.
    • No Action
    • unit tests added to cover change

    Description

      I have a certificate signing request that I would like to get rid of with "puppet cert". However, I can only list and sign CSRs.

      Here's my log:
      [root@operations ~]# puppet --version
      3.4.2
      [root@operations ~]# puppet cert list | grep local
      "localhost.localdomain" (MD5) 12:5E:40:6B:79:84:6F:9C:51:7B:40:81:30:30:8B:F5
      [root@operations ~]# puppet cert clean localhost.localdomain
      Error: Could not find a serial number for localhost.localdomain

      A thread at puppet-users suggests this worked before, but is now broken:
