Documentation for logdest is confusing

    Details

    • Release Notes:
      Bug Fix
    • Release Notes Summary:
      The documentation for the --logdest option now clearly shows that only an absolute path can be used when specifying a file log destination.
    • QA Risk Assessment:
      No Action

      Description

      The logdest option is described as such in puppet apply :
      [-l|--logdest syslog|eventlog|<FILE>|console] [--noop]

      But it would more accurately be described as:
      [-l|--logdest syslog|eventlog|<ABS FILEPATH>|console] [--noop]

      The logdest does not accept a file, only an absolute path, which is misleading.
