We've Moved!

Ticket tracking is now hosted in JIRA:


We had a customer request regarding the change involving the addition of the environment field (#10064). In the latest version of Puppet (2.7.12), there was the addition of the environment field to yaml stored reports. However, the report_format version number stayed the same. The format version should be updated in order to allow for differentiation in analysis scripts that may need to parse the contents differently depending on the fields it contains. With the format version the same, this is a more difficult task.

Merged into 3.x in commit 197dd26 and then realized that this should be in 2.7.x and so cherry picked and merged in as 5db4c6e.

#3 Updated by Anonymous about 3 years ago

Turns out that version 3 was already documented last year! We can predict the future, just not very well.

#4 Updated by Anonymous about 3 years ago

Updated the documentation to reflect the new field. Also removed the fields that look like they had been planned for format 3 at some point, but I couldn’t find any evidence that they actually existed.
