Subject RE: [DISCUSS] Major business logic refactoring: Move from Account to UserAccount
Date Thu, 20 Nov 2014 20:11:52 GMT

I checked the code here;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/useraccount-refactoring
and I don't understand why we need to expose the userId parameter in the deployVm API. 
I think we should be using the userId of the logged in user always. 
Exposing the parameter at the API allows it to be set by a user to the ID of another user
. Also we need validation around it to make sure it belongs to the passed account etc.

+    //Owner userId
+    @Parameter(name = ApiConstants.USER_ID, type = CommandType.UUID, entityType = UserResponse.class,
required = true, description = "the user ID of the owner, optional to use with account and
domainId. If not provided logged in user's ID is used.")
+    private Long userId;

Only one table will be affected.

NULL will be and not useful. I think it should be okay to have a db migration path that sets
user_id to the first user in account_id (which usually has the same name as account) for existing
VMs. The amount of code change will be minimal.

Checkout some code in this branch (has the db migration code and API layer changes);;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/useraccount-refactoring
