Description Matt Bagnara 2016-10-26 18:43:56 UTC
Description of problem:
Customers such as those in C2S use different amazon regions than the ones available in the UI when creating a new AWS Provider.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compute->Clouds->providers
2. Configuration->Add New Cloud Provider
3. Type=Amazon EC2

Actual results:
Region selector is limited to specific values.

Expected results:
Ability to specify a custom AWS region that is not listed.

Additional info:

Comment 4 Matt Bagnara 2016-11-14 22:34:00 UTC
Custom amazon region strings are required when deploying to specific versions of AWS. Right now the current AWS provider has a list of region strings to choose from, but no ability to specify one directly in the UI. Expect to see a dropdown list that can also be manually be changed to set a custom Amazon region string.

Additional regions can be added to the config/settings.yml file with the following format:

        :name: Special Region
        :hostname: ec2.spec-region-1.amazonaws.com
        :description: Super Special Region
