The ovirt-engine-api-explorer package has been deprecated and removed in Red Hat Virtualization Manager 4.4.3.

Description Martin Perina 2020-10-01 07:52:50 UTC
ovirt-engine-api-explorer is a simple application running on RHV Manager machine, which provides RESTAPI documentation. Unfortunately this application is written in JavaScript, which is very hard to keep updated and safe. Also ovirt-engine-api-explorer doesn't provide much bigger comfort than viewing RESTAPI documentation directly [1], so we have decide to remove ovirt-engine-api-explorer in RHV 4.4.3.
Here are details:

1. Link on Welcome page will point to the official RESTAPI doc [1] instead of ovirt-engine-api-explorer

2. ovirt-engine package will obsolete ovirt-engine-api-explorer package, so it won't be installed anymore
