Batch deletion of VMs


#1

Hey there,

is there a possibility to destroy VMs in masses ? Found a method called vm.destroy - but this is for a single vm. In the WebUI its possible to select more than one VM and destroy them in one call. Which method and how is that used ?

Thanks

Hello,

it still uses vm.destroy method, just calling it on many VMs. There is no safe batch method, since by calling vm.destroy, there are hooks running that delete also related records (Rails :dependent => :destroy).

I’ve been asking for multi-select, custom methods for years. I have the same requirement for bulk deletion of VM’s.
