Description Reartes Guillermo 2018-04-25 21:21:43 UTC
Description of problem:

I encountered a situation in which i had to implement a custom add disk to VM method and dialog. (With storage tiers).

I noticed that this led to an unwanted situation, the reconfigure vm dialog functionality cannot be divided so i will have to disable all 3 reconfiguration (CPU/MEMORY/DISK) and re-implement CPU/MEMORY alongside the new custom DISK reconfiguration.

That should not be this way, since the default CPU/MEMORY reconfiguration provided by CloudForms is Okay.

So, this RFE is for splitting the role permission "reconfigure vm" into "reconfigure vm cpu", "reconfigure vm memory" and "reconfigure vm disk". This will avoid unnecessary re-implementations.

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

How reproducible:
N/A since is an RFE

Steps to Reproduce:
N/A since is an RFE

Actual results:

Having to re-implement both CPU and MEMORY reconfiguration when i should only need to re implement/implement the custom add disk to vm code. (and dialog and dynamic elements).

Expected results:

Being able to continue the default reconfiguration dialog for both CPU and MEMORY and also disabling DISK reconfiguration in order to implement a custom version with customer needs.

reconfigure vm screenshot 4.6 (separate color for the sections to disable)

Sorry, the example screenshot is from an archived VM, but that is what i got now.
I also thing that the disable feature should not be visiable, not just grayed down.

The Network Adapters addition is unusable when using tenancy.
Giving "reconfigure" gives also the ability for user1 on tenant1 access to any tenant network.

The reconfigure screen is all-or-nothing for reconfiguration.
