11427

Update wiki links for structural changes in the wiki

11395

VDC Sync removes private IP attached to Not Allocated VMs

11394

Sync removes IP attached/purchased by VDC. Keep unused IPs attached to VDCs

11329

VDC sync operations affect Abiquo entities that are not deployed. For not allocated VMs, maintain IPs and load balancers in provider only

11326

11318

Calls made to bills/providers when the hybrid tab is not enabled

11292

ARM - Allow null passwords in validate when importing VM templates; the platform will apply default credentials before deploy, for example, for imported VMs

11283

ARM: Reconfigure not allowed error message is confusing. It should apply to specific NIC configurations only, e.g. Multi-NIC configurations created in the Azure portal

11256

vCloud regions should be grouped by endpoints when using UI configuration to group regions by provider

11187

Synchronized VM in public cloud creates the IPs attached to invalid sequences when it should obtain the sequences from the provider

11186

Sync of VDC moves sequences of private IPs if the provider does not implement Networking#listIpsInNetwork

11183

User with VDC restriction can display all the VApps in their enterprise. Customer ticket: 5756

11180

Missing credentials labels for PCRs that are out of scope.

11178

Basic hardware profiles can't handle Premium Storage. Handle error if onboarded VMs are using premium storage or user tries to add premium storage

11175

Hyper-V - Some PowerShell errors cannot be serialized into JSON and are lost. Try to always print errors

11170

Get request only returns 25 DCs/PCRs when creating a scope

11169

Emulated CD drives prevent VM relocation. Customer ticket: 5731

11163

11162

DRS rule only contains the last VM deployed in the layer. Customer ticket: 5745

11152

The creation_time in the database should not update if a vMotion is performed. Customer ticket: 5751

11150

Pricing button in VApp view swaps between USD/$ or EUR/$. Customer ticket: 5747

11146

Azure - Abiquo does not support load balancers without routing rules, so it should generate an error if user tries to synchronize them

11143

DNSmasq script fails in some situations related to network tags

11141

Reconfiguring a VM with an IDE-ISO, the VM remains spinning in the error state. Customer ticket: 5732

vCloud - Classic Firewall should filter by ORG VDC, not by ORG

11128

Stored Procedure VM_HOURS takes too long and causes connections to time out

11119

Not validating FW rules when creating VApps from Specs. Added message "Firewalls routing to other firewalls are not supported in this provider. These rules will be ignored..."

11118

vCloud - An orgNetwork direct connected to an external not configured in the Edge is not suitable for load balancers (no reserved IPs are required)

11113

AWS - Unhelpful error message when creating a load balancer

11111

ARM imports Ubuntu images with invalid username (root). Allow empty user password because platform supplies default credentials at deploy

11109

VEEAM weekly backups do not schedule correctly. Customer ticket: 5734

11094

GET warning while trying to synchronize a classic firewall in a public cloud without classic firewalls. Filter list of locations on Classic firewalls tab to only display locations that support classic firewalls

11093

Generate VM label if not provided

11075

ARM - Check user name and password in VM template is allowed before deploying

11065

Captured virtual appliance should use VM friendly name if available. Only if the tenant does is using the option to import all VMs to a single VApp

11061

ARM - Button to open VM Remote access is missing

11054

Use the Abiquo VM label (friendly name) as the Oracle Cloud VM name (Instance name). Use the Abiquo VM UUID as the Orchestration name

11036

Update VM label from the provider during virtual infrastructure check

11029

Do not use vcloud VM name as identifier (Cannot rename a virtual machine in vCloud). Import and capture will be as per AWS. Abiquo will add its identifier as a metadata entry. If VMs do not have metadata, Abiquo will store the provider ID (vCloud URN) and use it to identify them (e.g. captured VMs). After the Administrator performs a "Clone" or "Move to Catalog" in vCloud, they must remove the duplicate metadata to prevent multiple VMs with the same ID. Customers using vCloud should contact Abiquo Support for details of the upgrade tool.

11026

User interface - Information overlapped when it is long

11023

Copy/move VApp actions are not working because content type for data entities has changed

11004

ARM - Create VDC with duplicate name fails with unhandled exception. Added check for existing virtual network in the provider

10993

Remove scope from send email. User should be allowed to send an email to a VM that is not in scope

10920

vCloud load balancers - Cannot modify Health Check or Routing Rule

10915

Sync VDC name - for Amazon VPC, name is the tag ''name'' and for vCloud VDC, it is the name of the vApp

10914

vCloud - platform doesn't detect the VMs assigned to a load balancer

10891

vCloud - Do not add internal IPs to load balancer member pool. Only IPs reachable from the Edge should be part of the pool

10888

vCloud - Add validation to prevent load balancers reusing addresses and same port in Edge

10883

It should be possible to offboard a tenant, releasing resources in the platform while leaving them intact in the provider

10882

vCloud - Remove delete button from classic firewalls as it is only possible to synchronize them and manage their rules

10861

Cannot specify the supported ethernet drivers by hypervisor type or provider. Added properties to the pluginmetadata category.

10859

User interface - Cannot use hot reconfigure for VMs in public cloud

10858

User interface - Cannot specify attributes to hot reconfigure for public cloud templates

10857

ARM - Add check to disable deploying VMs with basic hardware profile and load balancer because ARM does not support this configuration

10834

vCloud - NICs are not set with the NIC driver established at template level

10832

vCloud - Load balancers using invalid health check (SSL - HTTPS). vCloud supports these health checks per protocol: HTTP → HTTP or TCP; HTTPS → SSL or TCP; TCP → TCP

10822

User interface - Routing rules from imported load balancers are not properly displayed

10799

vCloud - Attached NICs are reordered (in the platform only) after synchronizing VDC

10754

Capturing VM must not allow user to modify values of CPU / RAM / cores per socket

10743

10713

Azure ARM - 500 ISE adding a region that the Azure account cannot access

10685

Azure ARM - Dynamic Floating IPs are not synchronized by Abiquo

10661

For restricted VApp, only display "Automatically open it after creation" option if the user has the appropriate privilege. A user with the manage privilege but without the view privilege can create but cannot retrieve a restricted VApp.

10660

Deploy button should not appear when a user can view restricted VApps only

10659

Top menu element changes color to blue in Incognito Window. See Changes to branding#4.5

10565

In public cloud, edit VM and add public IP with plus button does not obtain an IP

10544

Dragging and dropping a DC between allowed and not allowed triggers a duplicated limits error

Duplicate VM names may cause synchronization problems. Now the platform will not onboard a second VM with the same name. Known issue: the platform does not generate a warning event.

10528

Azure ARM - Timeout deploying an instance from an instance (Image NOT generalized). The user should generalize a VM before creating an instance. After creating the instance, the user cannot power on the VM again

10499

Abiquo asks for more metric datapoints than AWS allows users to retrieve. Each provider transmits metrics at different intervals, for example, with Amazon Basic monitoring, data is sent every 5 minutes, and with Advanced monitoring, every minute. If you request the evaluation of an alarm more frequently than metric data is collected by the platform or sent by the provider, then the alarm will not activate.

10471

Abiquo VM labels are not consistent. See How does the platform identify entities

10454

Cannot send emails from infrastructure to VM owners in PCR

10389

Scopes - User can GET details of their enterprise even if it is not in scope. A user without their enterprise in scope sshould be able to get VDC entities from enterprise path only

9958

Remove the tokens from the URL after OpenID authentication

9105

AWS - It is not possible to add Seoul or Mumbai or Ohio region to Abiquo
