Supported platforms for each version of open source Puppet Server should be listed in the release notes: https://docs.puppetlabs.com/puppetserver/latest/release_notes.html. It looks like Debian 8 is listed there.

I believe the PuppetDB team owns their release notes and docs, and the 3.2.0 notes mention that Debian 8 support is added: https://docs.puppetlabs.com/puppetdb/latest/release_notes.html#section

They also have a System Requirements section in the overview that needs updating: http://docs.puppetlabs.com/puppetdb/latest/#system-requirements

So some one needs to add Debian 8 to https://docs.puppetlabs.com/guides/platforms.html to fix this issue ?

Comment by Garrett Guillotte [ 2016/01/07 ]

I've been working on migrating that guide, as well as the packaging guides, into the versioned documentation so we can point people to product version-specific requirements and functionality. For instance, where we provide functionality for it, Debian 8 is (or should be) listed on the versioned, per-product system requirements pages, such as Puppet 4.3's.

How much time is going to take ? What is the blocking issue actually ?
Why this issue is not in 'major' priority ? I think it is affecting a lot of people out there, as no puppetdb or puppet dashbord packages are availble for Debian Jessie.

Is there anything we can do to help ?

We need Jessie packages for an internal project.

Thanks a lot.

Oussama BOUNAIM are you looking for server packages for Debian Jessie? Because they're up and available. This ticket is just to make sure the documentation is correct. Check out the guide at https://docs.puppetlabs.com/guides/puppetlabs_package_repositories.html for installing packages. We're only providing puppet-agent and puppetserver packages for Jessie (read Puppet 4 and later). You'll need to enable the PC1 repos to access them.

Closing this out as we've noted our Debian 8 packages in the relevant Puppet Server versions' release notes and in the guides page that's being retired.

EDIT: Jessie is listed in the PuppetDB release notes and index page.
