Recipe type search


#1

To get a list of nodes with recipe postfix I’m using search(:node,
“recipe:postfix”), but in this case I actually only want nodes with
the postfix sub-recipe “delivery” (postfix::delivery). How do I
express that correctly in the search syntax? (just putting in
"postfix::delivery" returns an error) Thank you in advance.

#2

search(:node, ‘recipes:“postfix::delivery”’)

Hmm… I’ve tried that but I get this from the WebUI

“Unable to find the node. (400 “Bad Request”)”

I don’ know about the WebUI, but this works for me in shef:

search(:node, ‘recipes:postfix::delivery’)

Single vs. double quotes is significant here since you want to include a backslash in the string instead of having ruby interpret it as an escape.
