YAML and JSON backends swallow errors
|Keywords:||Affected Hiera Version:|
Ticket tracking is now hosted in JIRA: https://tickets.puppetlabs.com
Since the YAML and JSON backends were converted to using the filecache they swallow any errors that might be raised (except on ruby 1.9.3 because of how YAML errors are done there). This makes it very difficult for other systems that use hiera to provide information to users about problems that are occurring.
