Puppet Version: 5.5.8 (PE 2018.1.5)
Puppet Server Version: 5.3.6
OS Name/Version: Windows 2019
This ticket has arisen from a support case where the customer had noticed that a custom fact of theirs that used the group resource parameter member no longer worked after upgrading from PE 2018.1.3 to 2018.1.5.
After a quick repro and speaking with some of the devs, this looks like a regression issue. In 2018.1.3, member outputs names and in 2018.1.5 SID's were outputted:
2018.1.3 (Puppet 5.5.3) Group resource:
2018.1.5 (Puppet 5.5.8) Group resource:
Desired Behavior: Output of the Group Member parameter should be an array of Names and not SIDs.
Actual Behavior: Currently an array of SID's is outputted
