Description of problem:
I'm using CloudForms Management Engine and I was trying to create a Control Policy based on VM discovery. The problem is while creating "Control Policy" I cannot find "VM Discovery" event in the "VM Lifecycle" as explained by the Red Hat CloudForms 4.2 - Policies and Profiles Guide.
Version-Release number of selected component:
Create a control policy and try to assign an event for it, the "VM Lifecycle" group should contain "VM Discovery" as per the documentation. However there is no "VM Discovery" found in the whole page.
"VM Discovery" option under "VM Lifecycle"
VM discovery event has been removed per BZ #1238371.
Seems vm_create should be used as your event in the policy.
Also our document should be updated accordingly.
I've filled an appropriate bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1421959
Thank you for responding, you closed it as "Not a bug", just for my own records:
- The documentation says "VM Discovery" should be there, should I report this in a separate ticket to be corrected and remove "VM Discovery" option from Red Hat documentation?
- How can I base a Control event on "VM discovery" if this option is not present? What other ways to do that?
Thank you for properly closing the ticket and fixing my issue.
- Removing "VM Discovery" from documentation has been resolved via BZ #1421959.
- Use vm_create for your policy.
Thank you Lucy and Dmitry.
