Abiquo 4.7

Skip to end of metadata
Go to start of metadata

Abiquo 4.6 introduces a new privilege to allow access to the initial password of VMs.

As in previous versions, the VM owner can always access the initial password for their own VMs by clicking the key button on the VM control panel.

To allow another user to access all initial passwords for the VMs in their tenant, assign the "Retrieve VM initial password" privilege. In this API, this privilege is called "VM_RETRIEVE_INITIAL_PASSWORD".

By default this privilege is only assigned to the Cloud Administrator role.

Administrators should also note that the UI label of the privilege that allows a user to access the default credentials of a template has been changed to "Retrieve default template credentials".  This allows a user to access the default root credentials of a VM by clicking the "Default credentials" button on the dashboard.
