As part of my OPW project, I'm trying to build a mobile web UI for oVirt
but I'm having some troubles.
I cannot access the oVirt REST API because it doesn't allow cross origin
resource sharing (CORS). The only way to access the API is to host the UI
on the same IP as the engine. If it is enabled then people would be able to
run the mobile UI directly from the desktop without hosting it anywhere.
Do you have any suggestions on how to access oVirt REST API from another
host inside the browser? Any plans on enabling CORS on the REST API?
Hello users and developers,
Just put up a feature page for the aforementioned feature; in summary,
to report total RX/TX statistics for hosts and VMs in oVirt. This has
been requested several times on the users mailing list, and is
especially useful for accounting in VDI deployments.
You're more than welcome to review the feature page:
Note that this only deals with network usage - it'll be great if we have
similar features for CPU and disk usage!
The focus of our OPW internship program starting in December will be
mobile and/or lightweight engine clients -- hopefully integrating the
new ovirt.js project.
I see that there are some already existing mobile clients for oVirt.
I'm trying to grasp what we have and what the needs are.
moVirt: https://github.com/matobet/moVirt (mbetak)
This appears to be more of a lightweight webadmin. No console access,
but I believe it's planned as part of OPW. (?)

Looks dead -- last commit 3 years ago.
Anyone know more about this one?
That's all I see on the first few pages of google.
When I think of a mobile client for oVirt, I think the most useful
part would be the user portal -- simple operations for start, stop,
and the ability to view the console of vms. moVirt mentions it wants
to support some basic management operations, though. I think it would
be difficult to do complex management in a mobile client. (I'm biased
towards huge screens, though.)
I'd like to see an official subproject started that coordinates our
Is this possible? What would it take to start it?
What would people like to see in such an app?

This message is in response to an earlier thread regarding a UI plugin
to upload ISO files. Like the original poster, Lucas, I began work on
a UI plugin to allow uploading ISO files through a UI plugin. After
reading the previous thread I'm re-thinking the architecture.
It was suggested that the recommended approach to upload files to a
storage domain is through the VDSM API . I'm pretty familiar with
the oVirt REST API but have been unable to find documentation
regarding accessing the VDSM API. Should the VDSM API be accessible
by a UI plugin? If so, is there documentation available to do so?
