Subject RE: feature wish-list
Date Tue, 11 Dec 2012 17:05:22 GMT
Hi all
Sorry, I've been meaning to post this list  here since getting back from LV.
This was a set of feature requests that we worked up in the session I did at collab.
Some of these are very specific features, whereas some are more general.
We did a very unscientific poll of hands in the room to judge the overall support for each
feature: that  gives us the % figure for each one.

RBAC (similar to openstack)     75%
More friendly log messages      75%
monitoring access to internal process (duration running, progress monitors)     75%
Multiple IPs/NICs on each VM on same network    75%
column sorting  75%
improved search function        75%
Admin UI more 'enterprise' like or 'expert view'        75%
documented version support lifetime     50%
More meaningful pop-up messages 50%
Advanced IP address management  50%
Password reset (UI)     50%
UI Avoid sets shown and why     50%
some more features in api included in gui       50%
UI Plugins      36%
Multiple volume templates       33%
Dynamic IP/NIC adding & removing        33%
IPv6    33%
Multiple volume snapshots       32.50%
Plugin 'folder' 30%
Advanced networking ACLs        25%
Application containers  25%
Two factor authentication & 3rd party ie radius 25%
Additional System VMS for other network features        25%
Easy bug reporting feature      20%
Guest agent tools       10%
AD Integration  10%
Email nofitication inteligence  10%
UI Multi-VM selection   10%
Read-only api access    10%
Nat support for system VMs      5%
documented use-case configuration examples
UIDs exposed in UI
different admin and user UI styles +

Kind Regards
