Hi *,

anyone had success with Jinja2 profile templates in SuMA 3.2.3, using control structures?

I had created a Profile via SuMa web UI, with an autoyast installation profile, containing Cheetah variables. For tests, I converted this to Jinja2:

Code:
#template=jinja2
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE profile>
...
<hostname>{{ hostname }}</hostname>
...
Works like a charm. But once I try to add Jinja2 control structures, in fact anything with "{% %}", cobbler bails out. Unless I turn up the log level for cobblerd, nothing is reported in cobblerd.log and "cobbler system getks --name mysystemname" reorts

Code:
suma:/tmp # cobbler system getks --name mysystemname
 # This kickstart had errors that prevented it from being rendered correctly.
# The cobbler.log should have information relating to this failure.
suma:/tmp #
With log level set to INFO (actually DEBUG, but the messages are at INFO level), I see at least a hint in cobblerd.log:
Code:

    return builder.parseString(string)
   File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/xml/dom/expatbuilder.py", line 223, in parseString
    parser.Parse(string, True)
Well, it might have been easy to mess up XML, but this happens even with

Code:
#template=jinja2
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!--
{% i = "something" %}
{{ i }}
-->
<!DOCTYPE profile>
...
Is this some error on my behalf? Or is it a problem with the parser, prepared for "{{ }}", but not for "{% %}" (hence the "invalid token" error )?
