[openstack-dev] [puppet] [neutron] Serious bug in puppet neutron cli json output parsing.

I wonder if we should just refactor the Neutron provider to support either format? That way we stay independent from whatever the particular installation’s cliff/tablib situation is.
We can probably safely assume that none of the Neutron objects will have attributes called ‘Field’ or ‘Value’, so it would be fairly easy to detect which format is there.

Last I checked, which was quite a while ago, openstackclient didn't support everything we were using from the neutron client.
That's true. Openstack client doesn't support all features of neutron client .
I would prefer use 3) option, but, unfortunately, i also don't see way, how to detect stevedore and cliff.

I have added neutron people as they may help to find a solution.
After banging my head against the wall for a whole afternoon I
discovered a serious bug in puppet neutron module.
I not going to repeat here the detail of the bug report. Basically:
may break idempotency randomly and won't work at all when clifftablib is
removed from the package dependency of python-openstackclient
So the problem is that neutron cli json output on liberty (at least, and
maybe before) is not consistent and may come from cliff or clifftablib.
I didn't test it but the same may apply to openstack cli. As we don't
use the openstack cli json output it's not a issue (for puppet modules)
The available solution I can see are:
1. go back to parsing csv, shell output (revert )
2. find a way to leverage openstacklib parsing for neutron as well
3. keep json and parse the right output (cliff) and find a way to make
sure that it is always used by stevedore
Last I checked, which was quite a while ago, openstackclient didn't support everything we were using from the neutron client. I would like to reevaluate that and go with option 2 if we can. Otherwise option 1 seems reasonable.
From my point of view 3) is not a option, but other may disagree.
The problem is tricky and the fact that the CI cannot detect this is
So before Mitaka, the json parsing should go. I would love to see an
interface that all puppet modules would use (solution 2). The current
openstacklib parses openstack client well enough. The neutron command
is not that different and I think there is space for code reuse. This
would be a long term solution. It would bring the advantage of having
only one interface to change if it was decided to use the API directly
In the meantime, a quick solution to this bug must be found.
Looking forward to your comments.
