Subject CloudMonkey and URL Encoded password string
Date Thu, 05 Dec 2013 11:19:13 GMT

I having a bit of a bother with this command:

[root@csman1-1 ~]# cloudmonkey add host zoneid=1d2b7f7e-8a44-4c2f-840c-41b8eab715ff
clusterid=fe96dd24-ba3d-4a3f-be2a-f0792113200b hypervisor=XenServer
podid=55d1abca-8094-434d-81e7-ead9ac32faf6 url=http://vxen1-1.lan username=root
Unauthorized: None

401 unable to verify user credentials and/or request signature

It seems that CloudMonkey URL encoding the password field is breaking
the sig - pass*word is being encoded as "password=pass%2Aword”. %2A being
the HTML escape code for “*” char.

    request_url = "&".join(["=".join([r[0], urllib.quote_plus(str(r[1]))])
                           for r in request])

Any suggestions as to how I can get CloudMonkey to not the encode
the password field?
