[RFE] Unable to reference vmware customization spec when deploying via REST API
Last modified: 2017-12-08 09:51:51 EST
Was able to verify that the value does get passed through properly from the API to MiqProvisionVirtWorkflow, but then the item is not found, resulting in a nil which writes that console output.
Passing along to Automate.
Ryan - We never supported passing sysprep_custom_spec directly through the API call so I would say that part is an RFE. (Do we want to use this ticket for the RFE or create a new one?)
The usual implementation is that the custom_spec is determined in automate or passed as part of the "additional_values" property to automate, then automate can call the "set_customization_spec" method.
See https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_cloudforms/4.5/html/methods_available_for_automation/chap_methods_available_for_use_with_cloudforms_management_engine#sect_vm_provision_task_miq_provision (Search for "set_customization_spec")
Do you have any details on the work-around they implemented? I assume it would be using the logic mentioned above. I am not aware of any open issues around this feature.
Drew - We can discuss how to implement this directory from the API call. I believe it will require refactoring the set_customization_spec method so that it can be called from the workflow. See https://github.com/ManageIQ/manageiq/blob/master/app/models/mixins/miq_provision_mixin.rb#L186
