Description Kevin Morey 2017-08-15 04:08:01 UTC
Description of problem:
We are missing the ability to set a custom attribute on services via the API. As a cloud administrator i need the ability to provision resources via an Ansible playbook and then leverage custom attributes to assist with a retirement playbook. But there does not seem to be a way to set custom attributes on services. The same exact api action works on VMs and providers but not on services.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

This does not work:
# curl -k -u admin:smartvm -X GET https://localhost/api/services/12000000000002/custom_attributes

This works:
curl -k -u admin:smartvm -X GET https://localhost/api/vms/12000000000032/custom_attributes

Actual results:
HTTP 404 error

Expected results:
HTTP 200 and a list of custom attributes on the service
