Event Timeline

syncer created this object with edit policy "Custom Policy".

This requires that VyOS has either some kind of token that allows him to post-as user or the user credentials for pastebin. PHabricator Bots could be perhaps leveraged.

basic idea is to give user enter their credentials on the fly rather than store them in the config

default policy for paste which limits visibility of paste to author and maintainers(+ support team)

could you create a phabricator test paste with the correct permission settings as example. Next step is to programmaticly create the same and then integrate w/ vyos.

you need to add yourself to the subscribers, rest will be added by default policy
i think we can do that via conduit api

possibly we should enable the submission script to include a case number or something to automate mapping between objects within phabricator. I think we could automate posting the pastebin file into the issue thread by a bot or something.

@syncer I think we can remove this task from 1.1.8 backlog, because this is new feature.

It's new feature, but still will need to implement it for support service purpose in 1.1.x

Will be basically simple curl wrapper

I just noticed your pastes. We need to filter out the set password commands as they will contain plaintext passwords. This could be solved by making the command interactive (it asks for the password to be typed in) similarly to other platforms. There might be other stuff that requires filtering-out history or refactoring.

@syncer not in the config dump, in the bash-history that's included.

Well is part of show tech-support, output of which must be reviewed,
but i agree
