Deprecation: Deprecation of run_command (CHEF-14)

[edit on GitHub]

The old run_command API has been replaced by shell_out (a wrapper around Mixlib::ShellOut).

This deprecation warning was added in Chef 12.18.31, and run_command will be removed permanently in Chef 13.


Previously to run a command from chef-client code you might have written:

run_command(:command => "/sbin/ifconfig eth0")


You now need to use shell_out! instead:

shell_out!("/sbin/ifconfig eth0")
