Customer ticket

15121

Billing

Abiquo billing (DBMS) - "checkColumns" fails when abiquo_billing_data table already exists.
The fix resolves an error when enabling new a new billing usage column, but known issue when disabling one.
Recreate the "abiquo_billing.abiquo_billing_data" table to resolve any error related to this issue.

Updated documentation: https://wiki.abiquo.com/display/doc/Upload+and+replace+template+disks+via+API

 

6962

15076

Hyper-V

15069

Azure

Cannot add Azure credentials with type prefix (#normal or #csp)

 

 

15053

Google

Google plugin uses incorrect region sometimes

 

 

15050

Google

Onboarded volumes with autodelete flag are duplicated.
Note: The platform treats autodelete hard disks as volumes for performance reasons. When you undeploy or stop the VM, Google will delete them. Then during the next synchronization, the platform will delete them. If you wish to keep these disks, detach them from the VM before you undeploy

 

 

15049

Google

Sync IPs in subnet does not update ephemeral IPs after you change IPs from static to ephemeral directly in the provider

 

 

15048

Google

VM sync does not update IP's ephemeral/static field.
Now if you change static IPs to ephemeral IPs, the platform updates them as ephemeral IPs and does not delete them

15042

Hyper-V

Cannot capture a virtual machine

15018

Technical

15017

User interface

Azure

Sync VDC network, public IP could be duplicated because provider ID is returned in upper and/or lower case

 

 

15012
