  1. Usage Statistics - Virtual Server Name in Save as CSV

    On the Usage Statistics page for a user - https://portal.4d-cloud.com/usage_statistics – the Save as CSV is a really useful function. However, the CSV gives you the unique ID as opposed to the virtual server name, which from a customer perspective isn’t much use as they can’t easily tie that back to anything they know about.

  2. Permission Logs for change/create/delete operations

    None of the Role changes, use permission updates are logged.

    There is an audit log table but it is not functional.

    example scenarios:
    * Any intruder can create a user than create some VMs and give permissions to the VM's and than delete itself again.. and no-one can track what happened how these machines are created who give the permissions ..
    * If you by mistake change something on roles and would like to revert your change back there is no possibility
    * if someone will say "Add my SSH keys to all" on the role, for some time and…

  3. Billing Statistics for User Discounts

    Currently you are able to view detailed billing statistics per VM, but when viewing a user's profile it is difficult to identify the billing details for the user.

    The /users/$ID/user_statistics page shows some good information on billing for backups, templates, etc. but does not provide any details on free amount for virtual server resources.

    In particular, it would be useful if the "Discount due to free" total was able to show what particular resources contributed to this free amount and how the number is calculated.

    Depending on how the bucket is configured this free amount could be a collection of…

  5. Optional serial console instead of only noVNC

    Currently the only method of viewing a VS console on the CP server is via the graphical based noVNC provided. This is even if the VS will never run a graphical environment such as X11 or Wayland for it's entire use.

    It would be nice if OnApp enabled serial console kernel options in the provided templates and offered the option to use a javascript based serial terminal. This would have huge advantages over noVNC when fixing issues over a high latency or low bandwidth location such as in an area with poor cellular data coverage.

  6. Ability to select GRUB entries from CP server

    Usually for every attempt to start a VS based on a Linux distribution template, OnApp uses pygrub to alway boot the default grub menu option. It would be nice if from the CP server the user had the option to choose previous kernel entries in the grub menu.

    With how OnApp currently works, selecting previous grub menu items requires a lengthy process booting into rescue image and manually changing the grub.conf.

  9. Sort "Specify IP Address" by age of use

    The assign IP address option in the OnApp user interface may offer an IP address at the top of the list which was just unassigned by another customer only 5 minutes earlier. OnApp doesn't seem to take into account if other IP addresses have never been used or if other IP addresses have been unassigned much longer.

    Instead, the Specify IP Address list should be sorted in reverse by age of last use. The IP addresses that have never been used should always appear at the top of the list. If all IP addresses in the available pool have been…

  10. Clone server from backup 2+ disks

    The task is that the user wants to restore the backup of the current server to a new virtual machine, and everything is fine if the user has an entire server from one disk (then the task is simple, we make the template and roll the whole server out of it ).
    But what should a client do if his server consists of several disks? He can clone the system, but how to get the remaining disks from backups?
    Then I take out a large "saw" and climb into the database by changing the backup target disk to the new…

  11. vApp Shutdown Options

    On the page https://OnAppPortalURL.com/vapps the default shutdown option is to forcefully stop the vApp rather than use the shutdown option configured in https://OnAppPortalURL.com/vapps/vAppNumber/startup_items/edit.

    To change this functionality the URL for the power off option on the /vapps page should be changed from https://OnAppPortalURL.com/vapps/vAppNumber/stop to https://OnAppPortalURL.com/vapps/vAppNumber/shutdown

  12. Safe delete resources

    We regularly face one issue: users or our employees under certain circumstances delete all the resources.

    Situation 1:
    user creates a server, sets the back-ups on it and everything works good. Once he decides to delete the server. All the back-up are being deleted with the server, as the user didn't read the notification that they will be deleted.

    Situation 1a:
    All the above mentioned actions are made not by the user, but by a violator, who fit or stole a password, or even by an offended contractor.

    Situation 2:
    An employee deletes the account. And after this all the…

  13. Improve VCD error logs

    It will be helpful if OnApp can distinguish the errors originated in VCD from those generated by OnApp Control Panel itself.

    Currently, both error types are displayed almost identically. Only an experienced engineer can differentiate them using the log output.

    I believe displaying them as different error types in CP UI will be beneficial.

  15. Extend OnApp's firewall abilities.

    OnApp provides an excellent firewall ability for VS. However, the current implementation is not applicable for outbound traffic.
    Please extend firewall to use it for filtering outgoing VS traffic.

  16. Improve KVM VM firewall settings

    Would like the improve the KVM firewall features:
    1. Firewall Rule Templates
    It would be nice if you could create firewall rule templates and apply these templates to a virtual machine's firewall settings. This would make it easy to setup complex rule sets that will be in use for multiple servers. All you would need to do is modify the rule set and apply it to any number of virtual machines automatically. Also, updating the rule set should automatically update the firewall rules for any virtual machine to which it is applied. As part of configuring the firewall rules, it…

  17. OnappVPS WHMCS module presets & configuration options ability

    The issue is that with your OnappVPS WHMCS module, we have created VPS plans with preset CPU,memory,primary disk size, CPU shares, swap disk size, port speed, and included IPs. The module supports configuration options, which is good to allow us to allow the customer to order more IPs, CPU share, Memory and port speed if they want/need it during the a new order or VM upgrade process. The issue is that the module errors out when doing this, and according to developers you told them to program it like this, so it either has to be preset and the user…

  18. Dashboard statistics option to not include federation resources

    In the Onapp GUI when you subscribe to remote federation clouds, it includes all of those resources on Dashboard statistics and its hard to tell how much you have of your own local resources left/in use. So I would like option to not include federation resources or to have a drop down or something to select which compute zones you want to include in the main dashboard stats for showing.

  19. I would like to see nano built in to the Linux rescue image. It's an easier text editor than vi.

    Whenever I have to boot from a rescue image, and edit a file, I first have to install nano with yum. It would be nice if it was already in the rescue image.

  20. Introduce warnings about template upgrades

    A lot of customers are not doing regular template upgrades, the upgrade screen is hidden, it would be a good idea to warn about available template upgrades on the dashboard or anywhere you see fit.
