Deprecation: JSON Auto Inflate (CHEF-1)

Internally, the Chef::REST class attempts to guess which Chef class a JSON document relates too, and then automatically turns the JSON in to that class.

This deprecation warning was added in Chef Infra Client 12.7.2, and JSON auto inflation will be removed permanently in Chef Infra Client 13.


When loading an environment from the Chef Infra Server, you might previously have written:

name = 'my_environment'

and received a Chef::Environment object back.


You now need to explicitly create a new object of the desired type.

name = 'my_environment'
Chef::Environment.from_hash chef_server_rest.get("environments/#{name}")
