I'm running DevTest 9.5.1, and I'm browsing the available REST calls to investigate some CI automation capabilities. I get an error when using the Invoke operation "
The error I get is "
com.itko.lisa.invoke.api.exception.ApiException: No longer supported"
I get the same error when I use the operation "
I can't try the other lab operations, because they need a lab-key parameter, provided in the response to the above two calls.
I remember when the concept of Labs was first introduced, in 2010, so we could deploy & manage LISA components in remote cloud instances, provisioned through various cloud providers in a consistent manner (without needing to know the specific command & syntax differences between the providers), but we never made any fuss about it, never marketed it and never published explanations about the capability.
Is this capability now removed? I don't see anything in the API documentation about it being deprecated, I haven't noticed anything about it in release notes for different versions of DevTest, and command-line DevTest tools such as ServiceManager still reference labs.
I don't have any immediate use case for this functionality, but I'm curious as to whether the lab functionality is now something we would push to build & deploy tools, as the facilities provided in those tools have increased over the past 6+ years.
