Improvements

Key

Summary

Notes

12367

Veeam - Try not to lose old backups if product API fails when returning results

Ticket: 6049

12356

API/MODEL - Add VM_RETRIEVE_INITIAL_PASSWORD privilege to allow administrator to retrieve initial password, as well as VM owner

Ticket: 6054

12354

Round down percentages over 100% on Optimization dashboard for KVM hypervisor


12350

UI - Enable user other than VM owner to retrieve initial password with new privilege

Ticket: 6054

12348

ARM - Increase default polling interval to improve performance and reduce API rate limit concerns.
Customers using Azure should apply the new defaults in abiquo.properties for existing installations:

abiquo.vsm.pollingfrequency.azurecompute-arm=900000
abiquo.vsm.vmsyncfrequency.azurecompute-arm=900000
abiquo.vsm.vmmetrics.collectfrequency.azurecompute-arm=300000

12344Improve hybrid dashboard. See Dashboard improvements

12335

ARM - Deploy operations force too many unneeded calls


12326

Do not show "Default credentials" button if the VM does not have a user and a password, from the VM template.
Remember that your changes to templates will only affect new VMs created after you save the changes


12319

Adapt Azure billing dashboard script to use new token model for CSP. See Changes to Azure CSP credentials
CSP customers must use a dashboard to onboard partners and obtain consent, then obtain tokens. See Microsoft PDF documentation


12318

Adapt Azure price list synchronization process to use token for CSP. See Changes to Azure CSP credentials


12312

ARM - Improvements in listAllLoadBalancers in jclouds


12309

Do not log large, unhelpful stack trace when UI aborts certain requests


12301

Interpret constraint ''SNAPSHOT_CANNOT_SELECT_HARD_DISKS''.
vCloud will return true so the instance should not provide the option to select the disks of the VM


12276

Fix links for metrics with '/' in the name


12274

Review links using entity name in API path to check for URL encoding


12200

UI should use the "TEMPLATE_LIST_CAN_FILTER_OSTYPE" constraint.
By default the constraint is true. When false, the UI should not show the OS selection in the dialog that lists templates to import.


12191

Improve efficiency during JSON communications with NARS


12189

Optimization dashboard - MostTimeOn - change to "Most time deployed" and use VM attributes to get the value


12188

Optimization dashboard - MostTimeOn - Undeployed VMs should not be shown


12187

Metrics - To get vmUsage of CPU/RAM used over/under a percentage and limit results via API, add query parameters.
In UI configuration, add default values for dashboard. See Configure Abiquo UI


12167

Improve import template in vCloud Director by not including OsType for the list of templates to import via API


12141

Add Cores per Socket in vCloud Director for templates and VMs. See Improvements to vCloud Director Integration


12133

ARM - Improvements to listNetworkSecurityGroups (firewalls) in Azure jclouds provider and Abiquo plugin


12132

ARM - Improvements to listVirtualMachines in Azure plugin


12131

ARM - Improvements to listVirtualMachines in Azure jclouds provider


12126

ARM - Use VPC providerId in virtual machine identifier to avoid checking all the resource groups


12121

ARM - Skip obtaining all versions of an SKU in a template search and only return the latest version available for deploy


12107

User interface - Interpret missing properties error during create virtual datacenter
Support multiple virtual datacenters in NSX-ECMP with different values of certain properties for each VDC.
When a request fails, the UI should use a JSON schema to look up the description and type of missing properties.
Then it should display a form for the user to fill in those properties and retry the request, adding those values in a header.
See Create more than one VDC in NSX ECMP and Configure Abiquo UI


12046

Fix provider column in the UsageDetailVW view so that it is based on the hypervisor type


11934

Remove deprecated API fields from UI, especially for usage of enterprise resources and limits


10589

ARM - Improve code efficiency when checking existing IPs by using new API calls


10416

vCenter - Virtual remote desktop IP address (vrdIp) is not always obtained from the hypervisor.
For vCenter clusters use given IPs, IPs in given networks, or as identified for management traffic.
See Detect vCenter management IPs


8491

Add a warning message when importing a Marketplace template so user can accept EULA in the AWS console
