Subject [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-7369) assignVirtualMachine API name not intuitive
Date Mon, 18 Aug 2014 22:25:22 GMT
Nitin Mehta created CLOUDSTACK-7369:

             Summary: assignVirtualMachine API name not intuitive
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-7369
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: API
    Affects Versions: 4.5.0
            Reporter: Nitin Mehta
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 4.5.0

I just went to a meetup and was talking to [~jlkinsel] who was talking about moving vms from
one account to another and was doing it manually through a huge set of db queries. We already
had this api in place since 3.0.x but folks are not aware of it due to unintuitive api name.
I can think of 2 solutions at the moment.

1. Create another api say changeVmOwnership and internally point it to the same logic as assignVirtualMachine.
Mark assignVirtualMachine as deprecated api name for 5.0
2. OR in the api documentation name it as changeVmOwnership so that folks would know what
this is possible through APIs
