Additional info:
It's basic requirement to allow users to manage their snapshots themselves,
This was possible in on RHV-3.*

Comment 1 Yaniv Kaul 2018-04-09 17:14:52 UTC
Michal - do we have any plans to add basic abilities here?

Comment 2 Michal Skrivanek 2018-04-10 06:54:06 UTC
not planned.
Snapshot functionality was not part of Basic User Portal functionality, only Power User Portal had that.

@bpelled, feel free to open upstream issue describing the use case and proposed scope/design

Comment 3 Yaniv Lavi 2018-04-30 07:55:09 UTC
Snapshots management is a basic feature to allow user to be independent and not need oVirt admin to micro manage the users.
I proposing this as high priority for 4.2 as I expect users to hit this issue on GA and have a poor transition experience from the old user portal.

Comment 7 Michal Skrivanek 2018-07-16 14:18:30 UTC
snapshot support is being actively worked on in upstream, we're looking tentatively to include an update in 4.2.6

Comment 11 samuel macko 2019-03-04 15:14:49 UTC
Verified on ovirt-engine-
VM Portal offers functionality to create, delete and restore snapshots.
