Description Guido Günther 2016-07-22 08:09:49 UTC
We have API to retrieve the VMs IPs since some time. It would be great if virt-manager would use it to display the VMs IP for easy ssh connecting.

I meant to look into this since quiet some time but did not get around to so filing this here as a "wish".

yup it's been on my todo list for a while too :)

Comment 3 Ricardo Bánffy 2017-09-08 23:02:28 UTC
Do you (Colin, Guido) have any UI idea for it? My first impulse is to add a possible column with all obtainable IP addresses. Another possibility would be hover pop-up with a list so as not to clutter the grid.

Comment 4 Cole Robinson 2017-09-11 19:10:49 UTC
Ricardo, if you get a working example with any UI that will be 80% of the effort, we can discuss tweaking the UI on virt-tools-list once I have something to look at

Comment 5 Guido Günther 2017-09-14 10:21:15 UTC
Actually having it in the VMs overview page would be a first step. Having it in the main grid would be nice but since IPs should be copy/pasteable I don't have any good suggestions for the grid view.

Comment 6 Cole Robinson 2018-03-03 22:06:23 UTC
A contributor posted patches recently, but getting this working so it doesn't spam libvirt API calls will take some work:

Comment 7 Cole Robinson 2018-09-05 19:15:53 UTC
Upstream has support for this now, listing IPs in the VM 'interface' details page
