asked 2014-01-30 09:55:29 -0500

Hi all,

I am trying to edit my plugin to add log message using i18n like this msg = _("Created a network %s under a tenant %s") % (network_id, tenant_id)

Functionality wise it is fine , but when i run tox -epep8 against this change i am getting H703 multiple positional placeholders.

Why am I getting this error, how to resolve this, Can somebody please help?

It means you need to use dictionary-based string formatting ( ( ).

msg = _("Created a network %(net_id)s under a tenant %(tenant_id)s") % {'net_id': network_id, 'tenant_id': tenant_id}

(NOTE this is more than 80 characters in one line, you need to break it down)
