[Docs] [Beta] [Admin] Users can specify default behavior for 'wipe after delete' per storage domain
Last modified: 2016-02-10 13:56:28 EST
In RHEV 3.6, it is now possible for users to specify default behavior of the 'wipe after delete' option for virtual disks on a per-storage domain basis.
This must be documented in both the Admin Guide and newly created REST API Guide -
From the Admin Portal, it should be possible to specify this option when creating or editing a data storage domain.
From the REST API, you can specify '<wipe_after_delete>' as an option when creating a storage domain (POST request).
After either of these actions are performed, 'wipe after delete' should be enabled by default for any virtual disks created in the given storage domain.

Worth mentioning this property can be edited after the domain is created (either from the GUI or from RESTAPI, with a PUT request). Editing this property does NOT change the wipe-after-delete property of pre-existing disks.
Thanks for the note - that sounds like great information to include.
Let us know at any time if anything else comes up!
Assigning to Megan for review.
Megan - you can see the new check box by going to Storage in the Admin Portal, selecting a storage domain, clicking edit, and expanding the 'Advanced Parameters' disclosure button.
What we will need to do is update each of the four procedures on adding storage domains to include a common sub-procedure that outlines how to (optionally) configure advanced options. The options appear to be the same for all storage domain types (ISO, Export, and Data) and formats (NFS, iSCSI, etc.), so it should be ok to create a block of text in one procedure and copy it to the rest.
Let me know if you have any questions.
