Manage access to existing VM's without modifying them


#1

Hello,

We have virtual devices that are configured and ready to use for our company internal web based training. I’ve deployed and configured a ManageIQ appliance on our vSphere infra to see if it could work to reserve the devices for the training duration, but ManageIQ looks to be only for deploying new VM’s and then destroying them when the duration is up. The control required for the training VM’s is strait forward.

  1. Revert to snapshot
  2. Power on VM
  3. Power off VM when reservation expires

Is this possible with ManageIQ?

Thank you
-John

HI @jbeaulau
Yes, you can start provider discovery and then users can access to vms. You can configure group for your students that mapped to corresponding role. For this role you can configure desired features that users can access: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_cloudforms/4.2/html/general_configuration/configuration#roles
