Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
Using the remote-viewer tool to connect to an ovirt:// URI now displays a menu that allows the user to change the CD image inserted in the virtual machine. This makes it possible to change the inserted CD while the virtual machine is running, without the need to access the Administration Portal or the User Portal.

Create a client for the oVirt's REST API for requesting foreign menu (similar to dynamicMenu but using REST API).

For more information about the specific details please see the oVirt's feature page:

--- Additional comment from Tomas Jelinek on 2013-06-27 08:13:57 EDT ---

The nature of this RFE has been changed - originally the client should have parsed a menu provided by oVirt REST. This is not true anymore. The new description is:
Client should be able to get the list of available CD images and also perform the change CD using the oVirt REST. oVirt will provide the sessionId to authenticate with the REST and the vmGuid in the .vv file.

This bug is RFE, and has a dependencies on rhel 6.x, rhel 7.x and windows spice clients

Comment 1 Michal Skrivanek 2015-05-25 11:13:01 UTC
ovirt side is done, depends on virt-viewer support (see Depends On bugs)
should be present in EL 6.7+, 7.1+

Comment 2 Michal Skrivanek 2015-06-05 07:36:26 UTC
make sure you're using the right client

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager Version:

vitrifaction included :
1. add and remove CD from ISO domain and see that it reflects in the CD list. 
2. check that the 'change CD' is working in user portal and admin portal. 
3. check the the 'change CD' is available on linux and windows. 
4. check that it is possible to see large amount of CD's in the menu.
