Description Peter McGowan 2017-01-20 09:55:02 UTC
Description of problem:
When we launch a service, we currently have no control over which zone the service-related automate methods/tasks run in. It would be very useful to be able to select the zone to run in when we define a service catalog item or bundle.

Additional info:
In a multi-appliance or multi-zone CFME installation, it is usual for enterprise firewall rules to be set to only allow specific CFME appliances access to external applications. In CFME we often have service-related workflows that include connectivity/integration points to such applications (such as a CMDB for example), and at present some of these workflows 'randomly' fail, depending which zone/appliance happens to be running the service_template_provision_task.

A workaround is for the service_template_provision_task to schedule the main workflow using $evm.execute('create_automation_request', ...), specifying the zone to run in, but this is nasty. Being able to specify the zone or permissible zones when we define the service would be much better.

Passing ticket to UI as backend work is merged.  Please sync with Lucy/Tina on UI details.

Comment 9 Lucy Fu 2019-04-01 13:25:28 UTC
UI change is required: add a drop down list for zone selection when adding a new catalog item.
There is no change for adding a new catalog bundle.

Comment 10 Lucy Fu 2019-04-04 13:53:42 UTC
Oops, forgot about UI changes.
