Add a tag on autodiscovery
We have multiple virtual environments and when performing an autodiscovery on all of them, all virtual machines get registered as Internal VM. We like to be able to easily show in reporting on which platform the vm is residing.
For that I think two options would be valid:
1 - Have the virtual machines not registered as InternalVM, but as VM-type 'vmware / Xen/ KVM / etc...'
2 - Introduce the possibility to add specific fields to objects found in a autodiscovery task.
Last option would me nicer as it gives a lot of flexibility on what information customers would like to add and then be able to filter on that in the reports.
For us it would be very benificial to be able to seperate the various systems as the information is planned to be used in external dashboards.
Both good points. As we are working with cloudstack integration, #1 is already being considered.
It makes sense to allow specific fields to objects - we started doing this with external auto-discovery tool with customer, service level and VRF group. We will discuss this internally.
Thanks & Regards,
