Subject [DISCUSS] Hiding the instance name from users
Date Tue, 23 Feb 2016 08:41:15 GMT

Before I file a bug I'd like to check if anyone know a good reason for
hiding the instance name, that is the typical i-2-123-VM name, from users?

There are cases where an error returns the instancename rather than
name/uuid, and this is confusing when users have no means to map that to
something they know.

Example log where instance name is used:

Failed to attach volume myvolume to VM mymachine; Device 1 is used in VM

If you do operations manually, or one by one then it is easy to correlate
it to your last action, but couple this with any kind of automation where
you do things in parallell and it becomes a nightmare to figure out of.
