Subject [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-1875) Add JSON output into cloudmonkey
Date Tue, 02 Apr 2013 03:15:15 GMT
Justin Grudzien created CLOUDSTACK-1875:

             Summary: Add JSON output into cloudmonkey
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-1875
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: Cloudmonkey
    Affects Versions: 4.1.0, Future
            Reporter: Justin Grudzien
            Priority: Minor

Data in JSON format is very easy to read for large data sets. Presently, cloudmonkey supports
tabular or line based output and looking at large output tends to be problematic. By adding
JSON output with filtering, a user can more easily process and consume data. The following
items should make cloudmonkey data more easily consumable:

1. Need to format empty return messages with proper JSON messaging.
2. Need to standardize JSON output messaging.
    A. Add return code [Error|Success] to all calls.
    B. Add called API verb.
3. Count is not decreased in output set when filtering completely eliminates a result.
4. JSON printing needs to be implemented manually to support colors. Right now json.dumps()
pretty prints the output and changing the keys to support colors is problematic.
5. Color tagging needs to be added to JSON printing.
6. Error messages need to have proper JSON formatting.
7. Make color a passable option to a command instead of a config parameter. (i.e. list users
account=grudzien color=true)
