I want to build an app for provisioning cloud VMs and managing their configurations. It appears that it is achievable with cloud provisioner which is a part of Puppet Enterprise - https://docs.puppetlabs.com/pe/latest/cloudprovisioner_overview.html .
Is it possible to do something similar with the open source version of Puppet?
I'm investigating whether I can somehow make the puppet ecosystem utilize our existing Microsoft Enterprise CA rather than being its own CA.
Since puppet touts that all of the system is "standard SSL", my guess is that it is completely possible to do this without much changing of puppet, HOWEVER it's likely a huge manual headache unless puppet is edited to make the proper calls to the enterprise
