Description Dan Yasny 2013-01-10 14:49:09 UTC
Description of problem:
guest_cur_user_name from vm_dynamic should show up in the API

since Bug 873790 is already requesting additional params, that Bug 879586 will provide in 3.2, I suggest the following:


Comment 1 Dan Yasny 2013-01-10 14:55:31 UTC
In addition, Bug 879586 will provide an additional user field, we'll have the in-guest user and the RHEV user that opened the spice console, we need both of them in the API

i thought the intention is to report more than a single user going forward?

FailedQA in ovirt-engine-3.5.0-0.0.master.20140605145557.git3ddd2de.el6.noarch (alpha2).

Verification steps:
1. Have a VM with  guest agent installed (I used Fedora 19).
2. Open VM console and log into the system.
3. In browser/REST API client get resource /ovirt-engine/api/vms/<vm-uuid>/sessions

HTTP 404:
HTTP Status 404 -

type Status report


description The requested resource () is not available.
JBoss Web/7.0.13.Final
Plus a traceback in server.log (attaching in next comment).

Expected result:
XML response with VM sessions collection.

Webadmin shows the logged-in user correctly.

Comment 13 Juan Hernández 2014-06-20 15:09:47 UTC
Currently this fails because we are trying to find the user using something like "admin@internal" as the key to lookup the users table, but the "username" column of this table only contains "admin" now. The "internal" part is in the column "domain".

Also, when creating the XML representation we are putting the login name of the user in the "name" element, but it should instead go in "user_name".

Comment 21 Pavel Novotny 2014-12-05 12:49:00 UTC
Verified in rhevm-3.5.0-0.23.beta.el6ev.noarch (vt13.1).

Verification steps:
1. Have a running VM with guest agent installed.
2. Log into RHEVM as domain user
3. Open the VM console and log into guest as user

The API response for /ovirt-engine/api/vms/<vm-id>/sessions/ is following:
  <session href="..." id="...">
    <vm href="..." id="..."/>
    <ip address="..."/>
    <user href="..." id="...">
      <domain href="..." id="...">
  <session href="..." id="...">
    <vm href="..." id="..."/>

There are two sessions:
- first session (with attr. <console_user>true</console_user>) is present only if the VM console is opened by RHEVM user
- second session contains name of the user, which is currently logged into the guest; if no guest user is logged in, the user_name value is None
