I finded the flavor, and have returned, but why the function still raise Exception? and strange is I can not catch it .

I have a retrieveFlavor function.

        vcpus_id = data["vcpus"]
        vcpus = CPUType.objects.get(id=vcpus_id).name[:-1]
        flavor = retrieveFlavor(vcpu=str(vcpus),
    except Exception as e:
        raise Exception("创建Flavor失败,请联系运营商")

this is the retrieveFlavor function details:

In it, I find_flavor = super_conn.conn.compute.find_flavor(name_or_id=flavor_name)

and it have found the flavor, you can see in the red arrow, but when I step over it get out to the outter:

You can see it comes to the retrieveFlavor invoke place, and the exception is:

'NoneType' object has no attribute '_body'

The strange is

1) the compute.find_flavor() have get the flavor, why still raise Exception? 2) the compute.find_flavor() did not except the Exception, , direct raise to the outter(retrieveFlavor() invoke there).

How to do with that?

I have found the solution in my aspect.

You see, I use the flavor == None to check whether find the flavor, there comes out my issue, now, if I use if flavor: or if flavor is None:to check whether flavor exists, so I will not get the issue.

there is the knowledge point about foo is None and foo == None.

It kind of sounds like a bug in OpenStack SDK. Flavor is an odd one because it doesn't always act like other resources and there might be something going on there. A full stack trace for what is going on in OSC would help it kind of sounds like it gets a response but blows up when you go to use the response probably something related to (
