Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-545) Tabularize the cloudmonkey response
Date Wed, 12 Dec 2012 23:59:21 GMT


Rohit Yadav commented on CLOUDSTACK-545:

There are a lot of fields, printing them all in a table won't make sense, what I can implement
is something like a selector for every api (like we have in mysql), so you can select and
create the output view... example code that prints result as a table:

diff --git a/tools/cli/cloudmonkey/ b/tools/cli/cloudmonkey/

> cloudmonkey responses would be more sensible and easier on the eye if they can look tabular
similar to the ec2 tools. enhance cloudmonkey to support tabular formatting instead of sequential
lists of the response
