Subject [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-4505) expungeDestroyedVirtualMachine API call
Date Mon, 26 Aug 2013 14:31:51 GMT
David Matteson created CLOUDSTACK-4505:

             Summary: expungeDestroyedVirtualMachine API call
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-4505
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: New Feature
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: API
    Affects Versions: Future
            Reporter: David Matteson

We want to provide users a long recovery time before expunging their VMs automatically. Recovery
is a great feature. But the problem is that users cannot deploy a new VM with the same hostname
or IP address as a Destroyed VM which has not yet been expunged.

So it would be great to have an API call that lets users say "No I really don't want to recover
that VM, please delete it so I can deploy a new one."

expungeDestroyedVirtualMachine would be called with a single vmid to specify which Destroyed
VM should be cleared, and of course it would only work on a VM which is in Destroyed state
