Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 982050
VM UUID is not shown prominently in Web UI
Last modified: 2015-09-22 09:09 EDT
Description of problem:
UUIDs for VMs are used extensively internally, and often appear in logs and errors. However, determining a particular VM's UUID from the Web UI is harder than it should be.
Selecting a VM in the Web UI does not show an obvious way to determine its UUID.
Given a VM's UUID, neither is there an easy way to find the corresponding VM in the UI.
The VM's UUID should appear in the General tab when a VM is selected in the UI.
Entering a VM's UUID in the Web UI search field should locate the VM with that UUID in the UI.
this is an RFE in fact, though small.
should be in WebAdmin's VM general subtab
