show running-config interface on nxos not working

See original GitHub issue

Using the playbook below

- hosts: localhost
  gather_facts: no
     contents: |
        !Command: show running-config interface Ethernet1/1
        !Running configuration last done at: Sun Aug 18 23:22:42 2019
        !Time: Tue Sep  3 23:25:59 2019

        version 7.0(3)I7(6) Bios:version 08.35

        interface Ethernet1/1
          description *** Peer Link ***
          switchport mode trunk
          switchport trunk allowed vlan 1-99,101-199,201-1399,1401-4094
          channel-group 1 mode active
          no shutdown

     - debug: msg="the value of contents is {{ contents }}"
     - name: Read in parse_genie role
         name: clay584.parse_genie
     - name: Debug Genie Filter
         msg: "{{ contents | parse_genie(command='show running-config interface', os='nxos') }}"

I get this output

ansible-playbook -i my_hosts ./parse_show_run_interface.yml

Hi @gamename

It seems you are missing interface with show command in the playbook. please change below line and check if you still see the issue.

         msg: "{{ contents | parse_genie(command='show running-config interface', os='nxos') }}"
         msg: "{{ contents | parse_genie(command='show running-config interface Ethernet1/1', os='nxos') }}"
