Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-4505) expungeDestroyedVirtualMachine API call
Date Thu, 30 Apr 2015 13:42:06 GMT


Wido den Hollander commented on CLOUDSTACK-4505:

This is already closed, but I also see a Use Case if Users could do this. We could make this
a setting so that per Domain/Account we can grant users the ability to Expunge their Instance?

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
