Description Petr Horáček 2015-12-10 08:08:23 EST
Description of problem:
Command `ovirt-shell -E 'show vm --name test_25'` fails with:
================= ERROR ================
    vm identifier or name required.
When I call it without --name, just `ovirt-shell -E 'show vm test_25'`, it's ok. --name used to work in 3.6.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ovirt-engine-cli.noarch   @ovirt-master-snapshot
ovirt-engine-sdk-python.noarch @ovirt-master-snapshot

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. show vm --name test_25

Actual results:

Expected results:
List of vm parameters

We don't plan any work on the CLI in 4.0.
Comment 3 Juan Hernández 2016-05-10 06:29:08 EDT
The --name option was never intended for this usage, the right way to get the details of an object, by name or id is the following:

  # show vm the_name_or_id

That works correctly.
