            --node-name MyManagedNode --engine-attributes "Name=CHEF_ORGANIZATION,Value=default"

On a Puppet server, this command is an alternative to the puppet cert sign command that signs a Puppet node CSR.

Example (Chef):

aws opsworks-cm associate-node --server-name MyServer
            --node-name MyManagedNode --engine-attributes "Name=PUPPET_NODE_CSR,Value=csr-pem"

A node can can only be associated with servers that are in a HEALTHY state. Otherwise, an InvalidStateException is thrown. A ResourceNotFoundException is thrown when the server does not exist. A ValidationException is raised when parameters of the request are not valid. The AssociateNode API call can be integrated into Auto Scaling configurations, AWS Cloudformation templates, or the user data of a server's instance.


For .NET Core and PCL this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to AssociateNodeAsync.
