Changes in PKIConnection

Previously the PKIConnection object had to be created for a specific subsystem, limiting its use to that subsystem only. Also, the get(), post(), put(), delete() had to be used with relative paths except when use_root_uri=True.

For example:

ca_connection = PKIConnection(hostname='localhost', port='8080', subsystem='ca')
kra_connection = PKIConnection(hostname='localhost', port='8080', subsystem='kra')

ca_login_client = AccountClient(ca_connection)
kra_login_client = AccountClient(kra_connection)

cert_client = CertClient(ca_connection)
key_client = KeyClient(kra_connection)

info = ca_connection.get('/pki/rest/info', use_root_uri=True)
certs = ca_connection.get('/rest/certs')
keys = kra_connection.get('/rest/agent/keys')

Since PKI 10.8 the PKIConnection object no longer needs to be created for a specific subsystem, allowing it to be used with various subsystems. Instead, the subsystem should be specified when creating generic client objects. Some client objects only work with specific subsystems only so the subsystem does not need to be specified. The get(), post(), put(), delete() should be used with absolute paths in all cases.

For example:

connection = PKIConnection(hostname='localhost', port='8080')

ca_login_client = AccountClient(connection, subsystem='ca')
kra_login_client = AccountClient(connection, subsystem='kra')

cert_client = CertClient(connection)  # only works with CA
key_client = KeyClient(connection)    # only works with KRA

info = connection.get('/pki/rest/info')
certs = connection.get('/ca/rest/certs')
keys = connection.get('/kra/rest/agent/keys')
