The following issues were resolved/addressed in CloudCenter 22.214.171.124:
CSCvq70481: CloudCenter needs to support adding tags to volumes on Azure RM and AWS clouds
Resolution: CloudCenter Platform 126.96.36.199 provides a fix to include tags that have been added at the VM instance-level to any volume that is attached to the VM. This fix applies to managed VMs in AWS and Azure cloud environments.
CSCvq82788: A standard user was unable to view VM details from the deployment page even if they belonged to a group that had manage access for the underlying deployment environment.
Resolution: CloudCenter Platform 188.8.131.52 provides a fix to address this issue and the VM details link functions as designed for standard users as well.
CSCvq68986: Parameters for External Services are not being passed to dependent tiers in hybrid deployments.
Resolution: CloudCenter Platform 184.108.40.206 provides a fix to address this issue and the parameter is being passed to dependent tiers in hybrid deployments
CSCvq47689: Under certain situations, when CloudCenter deploys a VM without an agent, the IP address of the VM is not reported correctly in the CloudCenter platform.
Resolution: CloudCenter Platform 220.127.116.11 includes changes to address this issue and ensure that the IP address is reported accurately.
CSCvq60907: Resource placement callouts should have a mechanism (a variable that is part of the userenv file) to return data and pass them as part of post-service/pre-service scripts.
Resolution: CloudCenter Platform 18.104.22.168 provides a fix to ensure that the external_action for post_vm_start scripts is also retrieved to ensure that results of resource placement callouts are available as environment variables in the post-service/pre-service scripts.
CSCvq60909: Resizing a virtual machine of a deployed application removes the old instance type from image mapping and replaces it with new instance type. A resize operation should not modify the image mapping.
Resolution: CloudCenter Platform 22.214.171.124 provides a fix to address this issue and the resized operation works as designed.
CSCvq19849: Some instance types in AzureRM are incorrect or not supported in CloudCenter 126.96.36.199.
Resolution: CloudCenter Platform 188.8.131.52 provides a fix to include the supported instance types for supported AzureRM regions.
CSCvq07374: Adding a deleted version of an application, gives a version loop error.
Resolution: CloudCenter 184.108.40.206 includes a fix to ensure that the version of an application that has been deleted can be added again.
CSCvp95768: Save parameters generated by external services during deployment for use during termination phase.
Resolution: CloudCenter 220.127.116.11 includes a fix to ensure that parameters generated by external services during a deployment are available during termination of multi-tier hybrid cloud deployments.
CSCvp85891: When attempting to clone a VMware VM and the VM name already exists, then the cloning operation fails, and the job goes into an error state. As part of the clean up, the pre-existing VM with the same name is also deleted.
Resolution: CloudCenter Platform 18.104.22.168 provides a fix to ensure that two different VMs on a VMware datacenter cannot have the same name if they are deployed in the same folder.
CSCvp53840: Parameters from external service are not passed to dependent tiers in hybrid cloud deployments.
Resolution: CloudCenter Platform 22.214.171.124 provides a fix to address this issue and the parameters are passed as designed for hybrid deployments.
CSCvp42558: When terminating a multi-tiers deployment, the tier/service that started last must be terminated first. That is, the termination actions must be executed in a reverse order of the deployment actions; otherwise, some termination scripts fail and/or the resources are not cleaned up.
Resolution: CloudCenter Platform 126.96.36.199 provides a fix to ensure that the termination actions function in the applicable order.
CSCvo81642: The groups with which an application profile is shared are not displayed during sharing operation for a subtenant user with Manage privileges on the application profile.
Resolution: CloudCenter Platform 188.8.131.52 provides a fix to ensure that when logged in as a sub-tenant, the application sharing dialog lists the groups with which the application is shared.
CSCvn69265: Google cloud is missing the FINLAND (europe-north1) and NETHERLANDS (europe-west4) regions.
Resolution: CloudCenter Platform 184.108.40.206 includes the supported instance types for these supported regions on Google Cloud Platform.
CSCvr00696: CloudCenter should support the Azure India regions.
Resolution: CloudCenter Platform 220.127.116.11 provides a fix to include the supported instance types for supported India regions for AzureRM.
