Deprecation: Chef REST (CHEF-9)

The Chef::REST class will be removed.

Chef::REST was deprecated in Chef Infra Client 12.7.2, and will be removed in Chef Infra Client 13.

The Cookstyle cop ChefDeprecations/UsesChefRESTHelpers has been introduced to detect this deprecation.


If writing code designed to be run internally to Chef, for example in a cookbook or a knife plugin, transition to using Chef::ServerAPI. In most cases this is as simple as creating a Chef::ServerAPI instance rather than a Chef::REST one.

If writing code to interact with a Chef Infra Server from other code, move to the chef-api gem.
