Description Pieter Vogel 2012-10-02 05:49:48 EDT
Description of problem: user cannnot create ticket for a machine from pool

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
component: ovirt-engine-restapi
version: 3.1.0 beta2 

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. grant user rights on pool
2. use restapi (with userlogin) to see on which pools user has rights. 
2. use restapi to take a vm from pool

Actual results: this is not implemented or documented.

Expected results: This should be possible because this is possible in userportal.

Additional info: The restapi is missing the possibility to "take vm" which is usually done in userportal. Now it is not possible to use restapi to connect to a machine from a pool.

Hi Pieter,

Can you please post request you have used against api and engine log?
Comment 3 Pieter Vogel 2012-10-02 07:41:16 EDT
That is the problem. This is not possible via restapi.

In the userportal a user can click on a pool to get a vm from that pool (take vm)
then the userportal shows a machine from that pool (eg pool-01)
then the user can click on that machine for a spice-connection.

Via restapi we try it as follows:

get as user a list of vm's
This results in a list of vm's the user has rights on. but their is no pool visible. and of course we don't have a possibility to "take a vm" and give user rights on a vm from a pool.

What we are missing in restapi:

1) howto see via restapi that a user has a userrole on a pool
2) take a vm from a pool (if a user didn't already have one)

the rest api was originally developed for admins, and pool 'allocate' wasn't relevant for admins.
now that user api was added, it was basedon the admin api, which didn't have this verb which should be added.
