We are working hard on new features and improvements for OpenNebula 5.0. In this post we will share with you the new labels support that will be included in Sunstone.
This new feature will enable the possibility to group the different resources under a given label and filter them in the admin and cloud views. With this new functionality, the user will be able to easily find the template she wants to instantiate or select a set of resources to apply a given action.
Labels can be defined for most of the OpenNebula resources from the admin view. Each resource will store the labels information in its own template, thus it can be easily edited from the CLI or Sunstone.
The list of labels defined for each pool will be shown in the left navigation menu. After clicking on one of these labels only the resources with this label will be shown in the table. This filter is also available in the cloud view inside the virtual machine creation form to easily select a specific template.
Stay tuned in the next coming weeks for more details about the new features planned for OpenNebula 5.0.
