I just noticed that setting the output formatter via solo.rb does not work:
When I run
chef-solo -j dna.json -c solo.rb it picks up the correct
log_level from solo.rb but still uses the “doc” formatter.
chef-solo -j dna.json -c solo.rb -F min works though, so it
seems it just does not pick it up from solo.rb…
This was observed on Chef 11.4.4 and Chef 11.6.0.
Is this a known bug?
add_formatter. Chef has support for multiple formatters, so that
you could hypothetically have one that prints user readable output to the
screen while another prints machine parseable output to a file (or send
data over the network to a centralized storage system or whatever). The
configuration settings are pretty basic right now (you only can configure a
formatter name and a file path), and I’m sure people will bump into
limitations once they really start using it, but that’s why it is this way.
