The ipa command line tools use RPC, but they use XML.  If you run ipa
-vv dnsrecord-add ... you can see the XML sent and received. There is a
bit of work converting from XML to JSON.  e.g.
<array><data><value><string>testdomain.com.</string></value><value><string>testdomain.com</string></value></data></array>
 is
["testdomain.com.", "testdomain.com."]

Note that FreeIPA 4.0 (current git master) will use JSON-RPC by default, so you'll no longer need to convert from XML.




It seems the -vv option is quickly becoming very useful for API users. Currently the logging is very low-level; in current master I get:

$ ipa -vv ping
ipa: INFO: trying https://vm-244.idm.lab.eng.brq.redhat.com/ipa/session/json

-----------------------------------------------------
IPA server version 3.3.90GITcb4dcd8. API version 2.77
-----------------------------------------------------

Would it be useful to also log pretty-printed JSON with `-vvv`, so adventurous API explorers can just copy and paste?
