Support multiple argument in network command-line

Registered by Tang Chen on 2016-05-24

In OSC, most commands can only operate on one object at one time. For example, you cannot create two servers within one single command.

There was a BP going to support operation on multiple servers within one command.
( https://blueprints.launchpad.net/python-openstackclient/+spec/cmd-with-multi-servers )
But the work stopped because of the discussion of error handling process in multiple rest api calls.

Now, in doc/source/command-errors.rst, we have defined the behavior of error handling in multiple rest api calls situation. So, we can restart the work of supporting multiple operation objects in command-line.

Instead of using the old BP, I'd like to propose a new one here to support not only server commands, but also all the commands possible in OSC.

This BP is for tracing network commands.
( Will update the detailed work to do here. )

Whiteboard

October 26, 2016 (aohuanxuan): This is completed, thanks for closing.

October 26, 2016 (rtheis): I'm closing this blueprint now that the delete commands have been updated. I don't know this makes sense to apply to all commands.

October 3, 2016 (rtheis): Is this blueprint complete or are there plans to expand this support beyond delete commands?
