Description Jeff Warnica 2016-11-10 16:47:06 UTC
Per summary: HTTP errors should be captured and logged, rather then showing "And unknown error was returned from the provider".

Background: Was attempting to execute a simple Tower job in a provisioning cycle, and then reproduced with the rails console. job.create_job(template, {..}) was failing with the above noted message.

tcpdump showed that Tower was reporting back (correctly):

{"inventory":["Job Template 'inventory' is missing or undefined."]}

This should be logged.

Granting that that is only useful to someone who knows Tower, "unknown error" is useless to everyone.

Error messages are now properly parsed form the response
