Description

Start with a BMC interface:

# curl -sku admin:$FOREMAN_PASSWORD https://1.2.3.4/api/v2/hosts/15/interfaces/106|json_pp
{
   "name" : "",
   "provider" : "IPMI",
   "username" : "root",
   "subnet_id" : null,
   "virtual" : false,
   "identifier" : "",
   "created_at" : "2015-06-06T22:03:50Z",
   "mac" : "aa:aa:aa:aa:aa:aa",
   "provision" : false,
   "type" : "bmc",
   "managed" : true,
   "ip" : "1.2.3.4",
   "primary" : false,
   "id" : 106,
   "updated_at" : "2015-06-06T22:03:50Z",
   "domain_id" : null,
   "password" : "redacted",
   "domain_name" : null,
   "subnet_name" : null
}

update the subnet_id via the API:

#curl -ku admin:$FOREMAN_PASSWORD -X PUT -H "Content-type: application/json" -d '{"interface":{"managed":true,"subnet_id":77}}' https://1.2.3.4/api/v2/hosts/15/interfaces/106|json_pp
{
   "managed" : true,
   "created_at" : "2015-06-06T22:03:50Z",
   "subnet_name" : "blah [12261]",
   "domain_id" : null,
   "virtual" : false,
   "subnet_id" : 77,
   "updated_at" : "2015-06-06T22:06:42Z",
   "mac" : "aa:aa:aa:aa:aa:aa",
   "domain_name" : null,
   "provision" : false,
   "identifier" : "",
   "id" : 106,
   "name" : "",
   "type" : "bmc",
   "primary" : false,
   "ip" : "1.2.3.4" 
}

The result looks mostly correct, type is still bmc but username and password are missing.

Validate the actual result:

# curl -ku admin:$FOREMAN_PASSWORD https://1.2.3.4/api/v2/hosts/15/interfaces/106|json_pp
{
   "identifier" : "",
   "mac" : "aa:aa:aa:aa:aa:aa",
   "subnet_name" : "blah",
   "primary" : false,
   "managed" : true,
   "domain_name" : null,
   "ip" : "1.2.3.4",
   "id" : 106,
   "provision" : false,
   "subnet_id" : 77,
   "virtual" : false,
   "updated_at" : "2015-06-06T22:06:42Z",
   "type" : "interface",
   "name" : "",
   "domain_id" : null,
   "created_at" : "2015-06-06T22:03:50Z" 
}

Interface type has been reset to "interface"

Its not only subent_id that makes the NIC type to change. In fact any update call that doesn't specifically send "type" parameter changes it to default interface.

Interface mapper maps nil to default interface and it's used also before the update action:
