Editing Floating Disks
Currently, editing disks is only applicable for VM disks.
This feature enables the user to edit a floating disk, and also to extend its size.

Before this feature, only VM disks were editable (from ‘VMs’ -> ‘Disk’ sub-tab). Therefore, for editing a disk, regardless of the required changed parameter (VM dependent or not), it first should be attached to a VM.
It is now possible editing disks from the ‘Disks’ tab, and also from the REST API, without prior attaching those disks to VMs, so they can remain floating.
A new ‘Edit’ button was added to the ‘Disks’ tab:
Once the popup shows up, the user can edit the disk’s non-VM dependent parameters, (such as it’s alias and description), and also to extend its size:
A disk can be updated using the REST API.
In order to edit a disk, the following request should be sent:
Each disk type has different characteristics that can be edited:
- For Image disks:
provisioned_size, alias, description, wipe_after_delete, shareable, backupand
- For LUN disks:
- For Cinder and Managed Block disks:
- For VM attached disks, the
qcow_versioncan also be edited.
For example, editing an image disk:
<disk> <alias>mydisk-new-alias</alias> <description>mydisk-new-desc</description> <shareable>true</shareable> </disk>
