Comment 1 Juan Hernández 2014-06-03 13:38:11 UTC
I think that we need to make the GetVmsInit query accessible to users, something like this:

diff --git a/backend/manager/modules/common/src/main/java/org/ovirt/engine/core/common/queries/ b/backend/manager/modu
index 0480b74..26532a9 100644

@@ -26,7 +26,7 @@ public enum VdcQueryType implements Serializable {

Shahar, can you confirm?

Comment 3 Juan Hernández 2014-07-11 11:36:06 UTC
Note that the attached patch allows access to the query, but that query is only used if the "Filter: true" header is used, so in addition to the fix the caller needs to add that header to the request.

Comment 4 Juan Hernández 2014-07-14 08:51:41 UTC
The fix for this issue has been merged into the upstream 3.5 branch, so it will be available downstream with the next rebase.

Comment 5 Pavel Novotny 2014-08-12 11:54:47 UTC
Verified upstream in ovirt-engine-3.5.0-0.0.master.20140804172041.git23b558e.el6.noarch (rc1).

GET request (see comment 0) as a regular user works. No errors about insufficient permissions to execute query in occured engine log.
