+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1532102 +++
Description of problem:
os-net-config reports NIC mapping, but only if you run in debug mode. Furthermore, the mapping output is not easily parsed for use in scripts. This is causing serious issues when troubleshooting or writing validations.
os-net-config should contain an option for returning the exact mapping, and it should return an easily consumable JSON or dict. For example, -i or --interfaces could return a mapping of the numeric NICs to real NIC name. This will make it possible to determine whether a mapping file is working correctly, or whether the desired mapped NICs are down (in which case they will not be mapped correctly).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
