Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-1026) In-Guest Customisation API
Date Mon, 21 Jan 2013 17:12:14 GMT


Alex Heneveld commented on CLOUDSTACK-1026:

A bit of context:  in discussions on the mailing list around CLOUDSTACK-576 (
it was agreed that the ability to customise a VM instance with files and commands should be
implemented as a separate feature.  This issue tracks that feature.

> To enable more sophisticated VM deployments and blueprint (#576) deployments, cloudstack
developers and system administrators need a mechanism to perform additional guest customisation.
 This would include:
>  * installing files to an instance
>  * executing commands on a VM post-boot
> Initially this would be from a Java API, then likely offering a REST API and GUI controls.
