oVirt gerrit 45992 0 master MERGED restapi: Remove duplicated guest info 2020-12-22 14:09:53 UTC

Description Juan Hernández 2014-02-03 15:56:35 UTC
Currently the RESTAPI reports the information about the IP addresses of guest network interfaces in several places:

1. /vms/{vm:id}

  <vm href="..." id="...">
        <ip address=""/>

2. /vms/{vm:id}/nics and /vms/{vm:id}/reporteddevices

        <reported_device href="..." id="..">
          <description>guest reported data</description>
          <mac address="00:1a:4a:b5:4c:94"/>
            <ip address="" version="v4"/>
            <ip address="fe80::21a:4aff:feb5:4c94" version="v6"/>
            <ip address="::1:21a:4aff:feb5:4c94" version="v6"/>
          <vm href="..." id="..."/>

Number 1 was the first implementation, and is kept only for backwards compatibility. It should be removed in version 4.x.

Comment 1 Juan Hernández 2014-02-03 15:57:41 UTC
The initial discussion about this is in bug 1055556.

Comment 2 Juan Hernández 2014-09-02 09:56:19 UTC
This is a backwards compatibility breaking change that we can do only in 4.x, please don't move it back to 3.x.

Comment 3 Red Hat Bugzilla Rules Engine 2015-10-19 11:00:22 UTC
Target release should be placed once a package build is known to fix a issue. Since this bug is not modified, the target version has been reset. Please use target milestone to plan a fix for a oVirt release.

Comment 4 Karolína Hajná 2016-04-27 07:29:35 UTC
Verified in 4.0.0-0.0.master.20160404161620.git4ffd5a4.el7.centos (build ovirt-4.0_alpha1)

Comment 6 Sandro Bonazzola 2016-07-05 08:04:38 UTC
oVirt 4.0.0 has been released, closing current release.
