      We marked this normal but would reduce it if this is obsoleted by Direct Puppet. We assume Direct puppet would reduce the need for this because the cached noop catalog would not be the correct version and would thus not be run.

      Still this is unexpected behavior, that a noop catalog could later be enforced. Allowing a way to explicitly not cache a noop catalog should be an option.

    Description

      Issue:
      There is currently no "none' parameter to pass the catalog_cache_terminus reference. If you want your --noop run not to trigger changes from a cache catalog as in (PUP-3077) you currently have to pass an invalid string:

      puppet agent -t --noop --catalog_cache_terminus=``

      Request:
      It would be nice to have the a "none" option similar to how you can specify "none" to disable data bindings in hiera (https://docs.puppetlabs.com/hiera/3.0/puppet.html#to-disable)
