Customer is asking for yaml output since it is good option for programatic access
Comment 3 Raghavendra Talur 2017-06-13 14:34:34 EDT
We do have xml output for programmatic access today, would that work for the customer right now?
Comment 4 Milan Zink 2017-06-14 04:57:58 EDT
Please check GSS case comments. XML output is there, but it has issues & some gluster commands are not supported (--xml switch is ignored).

YAML or JSON will be very nice addition to XML. Ability to use as a source for Ansible dynamic inventory. Easier integration with CloudForms or other mgmt tools.

Converting XML data to JSON/YAML should be very simple only by choosing and adding and using some converter. You can save sysadmins time whie trying to generate some gluster reports for various external dashboards..etc.

It's completely fine to schedule it for Gluster 4.0+.

GlusterD2 will have the json support.
