PRD35 - [RFE] configure SPICE disable-copy-paste in GUIs
Last modified: 2015-02-11 12:49:39 EST
Description of problem:
Since RHEL6.2/RHEV3.0, SPICE supports disabling of copy & paste feature at spice-server level that is also supported in libvirt (implemented as bug #693638, bug #693645, bug #693661):
# qemu-kvm -spice disable-copy-paste
What is lacking is proper integration into RHEV permission system and per-VM configuration:
* Add a "Allow Client-Guest Copy & Paste" permission to to
"VM - Basic Operations" group that is enabled by default
* Add a "Enable Guest-Client Copy & Paste" checkbox to "Edit VM" dialog for
PowerUser and more powerful role that is checked by default. When the user
is not allowed to use the feature by system-wide permission, this checkbox
is unchecked and disabled.
* RHEV-M should validate input of above checkbox in all case to prevent
circumvention via tools like DOM Inspector or Greasemonkey script in Firefox
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
workaround for now would be to use a custom hook until this is implemented
VDSM patch available here: http://gerrit.ovirt.org/#/c/22646/
engine patches: http://gerrit.ovirt.org/#/c/26241/ (and related)
move to MODIFIED because the UI patch was merged (only RESTAPI is left out, patch posted and verified, previous version ACKed).
Verified on ovirt-engine-3.5.0-0.0.master.20140804172041.git23b558e.el6.noarch
