mine.get not returning data in a state.orchestrate sls #48020

Description of Issue/Question

mine.get is not working correctly from inside an orchestration.


Add a mine_function to a pillar to return network.ip_addrs

Create an orch.sls with the following contents

{% set app_servers = salt.saltutil.runner('mine.get',
        fun='network.ip_addrs') %}

{% for app_server in app_servers.keys() %}

test-{{ app_server }}:
    - tgt: {{ app_server }}
    - fun:

{% endfor %}

Steps to Reproduce Issue

When running the following, app_servers will be an empty dictionary

$ sudo salt-run state.orchestrate orch

but if I run the same function via saltutil.runner it returns as I expect

$ sudo salt-call saltutil.runner mine.get tgt='*' fun='network.ip_addrs'

gives me this output

@Ch3LL Since he hasn't responded and I have just found this same issue after upgrading to 2018.3.1 on Friday, I'll add some additional information.

I find that I cannot get mine data from the master with salt-run commands. This is a problem as any mine data you want to use to control the flow of your orchestration or pillar will fail because they're rendered on the master (which is why saltutil.runner is used).

I upgraded from 2017.7.0 to 2018.3.1. This functionality has worked for us since 2016.3.3 and now doesn't work in 2018.3.1. This currently works in our 2017.7.0 production environments, but doesn't work in my test environment that I just upgraded to 2018.3.1.

salt-run mine.get '*' <mine function>

It does not work for me either. Same behavior on 2018.3.1.

It looks like it works if I'm using tgt_type='pillar' instead of 'glob'

thanks for clarifying the versions it was working in that helped me bisect the issue. The bisect showed this commit: bc30796 which is this pr: #44890

particularly i found its the diff of this file that created the problem:

I created a docker container to quickly replicate this:

  1. docker run -it -v ~/git/salt/:/testing/ ch3ll/issues:48020 (where ~/git/salt is a local cloned git repo of salt)
  2. bash -x ~/
