Description Tomas Jelinek 2015-11-12 11:38:49 UTC
Support for resource templates is missing in pcs. It is not possible to manage resource templates and use them in constraints nor resource creation. Pcs is not able to properly manage resources referencing templates.

This currently prevents "clufter ccs2pcscmd" emitting pcs commands of how

Similarly to [bug 1281358 comment 2], this could be worked around
using appropriate (currently non-existent) switch to cibadmin until
there's a proper support delivered in pcs.  Note that unline id-refs,
templates are first-class concept, substantially easier to present
to the users.

Re [comment 1]:
One of the options is to implement "template" exploding in XSLT,
which could then be reused as a filter in clufter easily, so
if the target pcs would be the one that doesn't resolve this
bug yet, it would resort to using that filter on the path
from CIB to pcs commands.

Templates _do_ get used -- as opposed to other syntanctic extensions
(extravagance); see the conclusion of the recent upstream community
survey (not very representative but at least some backing numbers):
