[SOLVED] Changes in pvesh from 5.2 to 5.3

I noticed some changes in the output of pvesh utility. I was using it for some nagios scripts and reporting tools that broke with the update. from 5.2 to 5.3

Example of command
pvesh get /cluster/resources
Was giving back a very detailed json will all nodes, storages vms info etc etc. A very detailed one that depending of what I needed, I was using portion of this information.

When updated from 5.2 to 5.3 this broke. Now the same command returns a human readable output with rows, collumns and really less information.

I want with one call to be able to get all vm names. I can't do this now.

Do I miss something? Proxmox api page does not seem also updated
