  1. 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.

  3. Add IPv6 range to Virtual Server

    Ability to add IPv6 ranges or blocks to the particular Virtual Server instead of having to add them on by one. Consider adding possibility to specify block size.

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. Provide an ability to disable or hide certain IP address within an existing IP range.

    In some cases, we need to reserve ( hide or make disabled ) a single IP or multiple such IPs in the existing range. This is useful to prevent picking chosen IPs during new server creation. Applicable to some IPs which are temporarily not usable due to been blocked by spam defenders or attacked by a botnet.

  7. Speedup auto backups by using existing instances of daily backups for weekly, monthly, yearly copies.

    If there is configured a daily backups schedule, successfully created daily backup can be easily turned in to copies of other longer periods. No need wasting time and resources for creating separate instances executing weekly, monthly or yearly schedules. Just use existing daily copy instead of removing it on next turn.

  8. Make LVM snapshot size configurable for backups

    Currently, when a backup is created, a LVM snapshot of the disk is made. This snapshot has the same size as the original.

    This means you need to leave a *lot* of free space on each data store. Since a backup will complete in a relatively short amount of time, the snapshot will never fill for more than a few percent.

    So, I'd like to have smaller LVM snapshots when taking backups. Perferably a configurable percentage of the original disk size.

    Lvm snapshot`s Create as full disk size. One moment 3-4 backup from one storage used 500-700 GB and…

  9. Integrated storage features on virtual machine overview page

    It would be helpful if the virtual machine overview page had some alerts if the underlying disks were, for example, not optimised for local read path or degraded and the ability to balance/resync were possible as currently it's a fairly complicated process to find where the VM would need to be placed to re-gain its local read path and the 'migrate virtual machine' option does not always place by default to a local read path HV.

  13. Allow editing of virtual disk size without VM operating system credentials.

    As an IAAS provider, we don't always have credentials within the VM, but still need to expand virtual disks for our customers. It would be nice to be able to expand the size of a virtual disk without the need to enter credentials for the VM to expand the partition.

  14. Add the initial root password JSON key on the Rebuild API response

    On the Build or Rebuild API response (https://docs.onapp.com/apim/latest/virtual-servers/build-or-rebuild-vs) it does not send the servers initial root password when called to rebuild the server.

    OnApp by default resets the password to the initial root password set on the OnApp database on re-build, so it's better to include that password so we do not need to recall a different API to get the password.

  15. Show "started date" column in Activity Log

    Add a column in activity log with started or executed date and one with scheduled date (as "Date" is called now). This would make it easier to track different tasks and their progress.

  16. Extend "cdn_resources" API call to add "status"

    Add "status"" filed to response of "Get List of CDN Resources" API call.

    GET /cdn_resources.json

    A workaround for this request is using "/cdn_resources/:id.json" but it is costly for getting status of all resources.
