  1. Terraform Provider

    Be able to deploy to OnApp based infrastructure using Terraform with OnApp as a provider.
    This will be great for our customers who are looking to deploy "cloud native" and automate their infrastructure. Helps us compete with AWS/Azure/GCP.

  3. Toggle to not bill suspended VM

    There should be an option to not continue billing a suspended VM while it is powered off.

    Currently if you set billing for an offline resource and the VM is suspended it will continue to rack up costs even though the user is suspended.

    I suggest there is an option available to zero out the rate card for suspended VMs so that when they are renewed they do not have to backpay for resources during the suspension.

  4. User should be able to distribute own templates to other Compute Zones/Regions

    We have two main Compute Zones/Regions (different Datacenters/ISPs). Each zone has it own Backup Zone attached. When user builds VM within Zone 1 he's able to make backups and own templates for further deployments within Zone 1. But he's unable to create VM within Zone 2 based on template from Zone 1. Template image doesn't exist in Zone 2.

    Please provide the way for User to distribute own templates between Zones (like do.co snapshots -> snapshot -> add to region) for further deployments.

  5. Improved stats for larger end users

    We have a number of customers where we allocate them a block of resources and they create whatever VMs they want with those resources, their own cloud so to speak. That can be with resources from our HVs or dedicated HVs for the customer.

    Unfortunately there are some basics missing to allow this to work nicely for customers, such as seeing how much disk space they've used from each Data Store they are assigned space on. There's just not enough visibility for lager users in to the resources they have and how they are using them.

  6. Timed Actions in OnApp

    The user should have the ability to create cronjob like timed actions in OnApp. Ability to define Date/Time and associated to, but not limited to, actions such as:

    - Powering VMs On/Off
    - Running Service Add-ons
    - Running Recipes

  7. Change scheduled backup times

    Currently, backups are scheduled to start at the time of day they were scheduled. To modify this, you need to alter the start_at field to the day and time that you would like the backup to queue next, in the schedules table. See this KB item for the workaround:
    https://help.onapp.com/hc/en-us/articles/222047068-How-to-change-scheduled-backup-times-

    This should be implemented in the Control Panel.

  10. FIX CUSTOM ROLES WITH VCLOUD DIRECTOR

    It used to work before 8.20 changes were implemented. Then it stopped working. Thats 2 years now with no ability to create custom roles in OnApp for vCloud Director user groups. Why do we even need to request a feature for broken functionality?

  11. Breakdown billing stats by vApp

    Display the billing stats breakdown by vApp or by VM by resource. This means that it is reported how many CPUs, RAM, disk size etc resources have been used in each hour by particular vApp on a resource pool.

  12. Automatically place VMs on the "right" hypervisor

    In a service provider environment users have no idea how many VMs are on a hypervisor or what the CPU load on the hypervisor is, how much RAM is available on the hypervisor, or any other information about the hypervisor in the OnApp UI so it's really silly that they have to pick which HV to place their VMs on. They pretty much always pick whatever one shows up in the dropdown first. OnApp should just collect metrics on the situations in the hypervisors and then auto-place the VMs based upon those metrics.

  13. AutoChange Template Names when VS upgrade happens ?

    we have VM's from very old templates like,
    ubuntu 10.04,12.04
    Centos 5
    debian 5,6,7
    ...

    and so on, but if you login to see the VM's, most of them are upgraded inside the VM. "Do-release-upgrade" but when we would like to get the list of VM's we don't know the real running operating systems on the VM's. The worst is that we can't remove the old templates from our templates list..

    Can you please update this automatically, or worst case leave us an option to change this on the CP ?

  14. reverse dns for virtual machines

    HI

    we manage all of our reverseDNS on a dedicated cPanel server. It would be great if we could integrate that to OnAPP.

    Virtual machine page should have reverseDNS icon near IP address list or on the IP address page

    users can add/remove/modify rDNS
    all rDNS is to be removed on VM removal

    Also this should be included in the API so the WHMCS modules can also allow customers who manage their VMs through WHMCS to be able to modify their rDNS per IP Address on their VM. 90% of our users control VMs via WHMCS so this is a…

  15. vCenter Virtual Machine automatic import

    Ability to import Virtual Machines from vCenter and assign to users in OnApp based on the Resource Pool or folder.
    Example use case for this feature is where a vCenter managed by OnApp is used as a Disaster Recovery site with an application like Zerto. When VM are recovered/replicated into a vCenter managed by OnApp then they should be automatically imported and assigned to user based on Resource Pool, Folder etc. This will allow the DR Service Provider to use OnApp to charge for resource consumed by VM and leverage on OnApp functionality to provide access to recovered/replicated VMs.

  17. Auto-assign customer specific IPv6 pools to a customer UID

    The OnApp administrator should be able to optionally select creation of IPv6 UIDs which will designate the pool that the customer can select all IPv6 addresses from for the life of their OnApp account.

    So, for example, let's say OnApp is assigned an entire IPv6 pool of 1:2:3:4::/64

    Then also, for example, John Smith is provided a new customer account with OnApp. At creation of the account the control panel server assigns him a random 32-bit UID of a1b2c3d4.

    From that point forward, all IPv6 addresses offered to Mr Smith should be from 1:2:3:4:a1b2:c3d4::/96

    There should never be a possibility…

  18. Glusterfs support for storage repository

    Hi There,

    We would like to use glusterfs as our storage repository. Currently Onapp is only supporting LVM(iscsi)/Solidfire/vcenter kind of storages.

    The requirements are like the following:

    * support glusterfs-client on the HV's

    * connect to the storage domains

    * supporting to create file based VM's like qcow2 or vmdk. (glisters is a NFS like location)

  19. Allow VM customization during deployment to join Active Directory domain

    vCenter has customization capabilities to automatically join a Windows OS to an Active Directory domain. So, having the ability to do that in OnApp when using vCenter would be useful.

  20. Maximum resources per VM in Buckets

    Allow for specifying maximum VM resources that can be provisioned to each individual VM in a billing bucket. Ie, maximum Cores per VM, maximum RAM per VM, maximum vdisk size (per data store), maximum number of vdisks per VM, max interfaces, max IPs (per net).

    The current rate card limits are great for limiting overall account limits, but give no way to define limits per VM. Maybe we don't want clients provisioning 128GB per VM, even though our HVs can do it.
