Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: Empty result list wasn't properly handled. Consequence: Invoking oc get with empty list would cause a panic. Fix: Properly handle the case with empty list. Result: oc get should not panic when dealing with empty list, but return a reasonable information about the list being empty.

-o=yaml and -o=json also panic.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. oc get pods -l doesnotexist=true -o=yaml > emptylist.yaml
2. oc get -f emptylist.yaml -o=name     # panic
3. oc get -f emptylist.yaml -o=json     # panic
4. oc get -f emptylist.yaml -o=yaml     # panic
5. cat emptylist.yaml | oc get -f - -o=name     # NO panic
6. oc get -f emptylist.yaml     # NO panic

Actual results:
The command line interface panics

Expected results:
A get on an empty list file should be consistent with input from stdin. No error / no results (or an empty list).

Additional info:
Preventing a panic here aids in programmatic use of the client binary. Several other variation behave as expected. Only a combination of -f <file> and -o seem to cause the problem.

This is now addressed in:
- https://github.com/kubernetes/kubernetes/pull/77681
- https://github.com/openshift/kubernetes/pull/75
I'll open oc bump once the latter PR merges.

Merged in https://github.com/openshift/oc/pull/63 moving to qa.

Comment 5 Xingxing Xia 2019-08-21 04:53:22 UTC
Verified in oc extracted from:
oc adm release extract --command=oc registry.svc.ci.openshift.org/ocp/release:4.2.0-0.nightly-2019-08-21-040043
No panic now.
