Subject [GitHub] libcloud pull request #1202: Fix hash value in azure blob store
Date Mon, 16 Apr 2018 22:38:30 GMT
GitHub user daviskirk opened a pull request:

    Fix hash value in azure blob store

    ## Upgrade azure blob storage api
    ### Description
    * Upgrade to minimum api version allowed by azure (see )
    * Return actual file (md5) hash instead of etag ('"0xFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF"')
    The current trunk version of libcloud throws a Libcloud error also described in (
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "...", line 12, in <module>
        c = d.list_containers()[1]
      File "libcloud/libcloud/storage/", line 209, in list_containers
        return list(self.iterate_containers())
      File "libcloud/libcloud/storage/drivers/", line 371, in iterate_containers
        (response.status), driver=self)
    libcloud.common.types.LibcloudError: <LibcloudError in <
object at 0x7f7389bf1080> 'Unexpected status code: 400'>
    and the corresponing response body of the failing request is:
    '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><Error><Code>InvalidHeaderValue</Code><Message>The
value for one of the HTTP headers is not in the correct format.\nRequestId:dd262993-501e-0030-6cd1-d58682000000\nTime:2018-04-16T22:24:39.6566784Z</Message><HeaderName>x-ms-version</HeaderName><HeaderValue>2012-02-12</HeaderValue></Error>'
    From looking at:
    the easiest fix is to upgrade the api version to the minumum supported version (2014-02-12).
    In addition, the other cloud drivers all provide the actual md5 hash when uploading or
getting an object.  This allows the user to check if a file has changed online compared to
locally.  The current master version provides the etag value as the "hash" attribute (interestingly
with literal quotes around the tag: `'"0xFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF"'`) which is not compatible with
the other drivers.
    Replace this with the PR description (mention the changes you have made, why
    you have made them, provide some background and any references to the provider
    documentation if needed, etc.).
    I am assuming that these are both bugs and not design decisions (if so feel free to close
this request).
