Support for Puppet 3 has been added in Foreman 1.1 (proxy and web UI).  The [[PuppetThreeWorkarounds]] page has additional details.

h2. How does Foreman work with PuppetDB?
16 48 Ken Barber
17 48 Ken Barber
Foreman does not use PuppetDB, nor does PuppetDB use Foreman. While they can both be used at the same time if you wish, there is no integration between these two tools.

19 48 Ken Barber
In the past Foreman used to use the ActiveRecord based Storeconfigs setup, to access facts but this is now deprecated (see [[Puppet Facts]] for the correct way to configure this now).
20 48 Ken Barber
21 48 Ken Barber
Reports can now be stored in PuppetDB (since version 1.1.0) but Foreman uses its own report storage to present reports to you, and will not use the reports stored in PuppetDB.

If you wish to use an alternative to PuppetDB exported resources, you can utilize foreman search API - see "This Blog Entry":http://blog.theforeman.org/2012/01/getting-foreman-search-results-into.html
