To enable users to deploy a VM even more quickly and easily, Abiquo 5.1 introduces this new feature to create and deploy a VM from anywhere.
You can start with the orange +VM button on any screen or from a template in the Apps library.
If you started from the +VM button, select a VDC and VApp, and then a template. Users with the required privileges can create VDCs and VApps as part of the process.
If you started from a template, select a hypervisor (if required), a VDC and a VApp.
You can then deploy directly, or automatically go to the virtual appliance, in order to edit the VM.
You can also open the advanced configuration to configure the VM before you deploy.
To enable this feature in Abiquo 5.1.0, add the property
"client.tmp.button.createvm.enabled": true to the file
client-config-custom.json , and the platform will display the button for users the next time they log in.
In Abiquo 5.2, this feature is now enabled by default, with the property
"client.createvmpopup.button.enabled" set to true in the client-config-default.json file. To disable the feature, set this property to
false in the file
client-config-custom.json file, and the platform will display the change to users next time they log in (and you do not need to restart any services).
