    When I'm trying to bootstrap a node using "Chef - Bootstrap linux/unix" action, I'm getting the below error as displayed in image. But I'm unable to find any field in the said action to input this "-N" parameter.
    How can I bootstrap a node using this action?

    For you to use Chef 12.x, you need to be at RA 6.1.0.1078, which contains the following line:

     

    DE162994 - "Run Chef Command Line" supports only Chef server version 11. It now supports also Chef 12

     

    CA Release Automation Solutions & Patches - CA Technologies - RA 6.1.0

    We are using RA version 5.5.2.409.
    Is there any workaround available in this version to bootstrap the node.

    Regrettably no, you have to upgrade to RA 6.1.0 to take advantage of the Chef 12.x support in RA.
