Re: [Feature Request] support for cluster wide VM operations
Thanks for the suggestion. In my opinion, it does make sense allowing
listing VMs using a clusterId. I would only expose this functionality to
root admins though. The same goes for deploying a VM on any host of a
specific cluster. Probably these enhancements were not developed because
people did not have the use case for it. I think you could register this
proposal in the issues section. You can then get people from your team to
develop it (we will for sure help reviewing it).
