Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-4666) VM created under projects don't show up in admin instances, or under hosts
Date Tue, 17 Sep 2013 13:42:51 GMT


danny webb commented on CLOUDSTACK-4666:

the problem with this segregation is that in order to get a unified view of what VM resource
is set-up where you need to delve into the output from both the project view and pair that
with the other output from the listall view.  As an admin I need to be able to see in an overarching
view everything that is installed across my estate.  The only way to do that if I use a mixture
of projects and domains is to stitch together output from the API.  That is problematic to
say the least.  At the very least the VMs should show up in the infrastructure -> clusters
-> hosts -> view instances view.  Otherwise that gives you a incomplete view of what
is running on a given hyperviser.

> If you create a VM via the API that is assigned to a project it the VM isn't viewable
anywhere except in the project view.  Even for the admin user.

> User -> Instances

without being able to see all hosts assigned to them.  
> It seems to me that assigning a VM to a project shouldn't remove it from the overall
instances list.  You should be able as a user be able to have the overall view of instances
regardless of project in the instances view as long as you are a member of that project. 
If you need to get granular with what VMs are assigned to what projects you can do that via
the project view.  And the admin should definitely be able to see all instances in the instances
page without having to delve into the project view and trying to find the host.
