Suggestion: lxc list and project featura


(Manuel ) #1

Hi,

Would it be possible to add an option to lxc list in order to specify the project of interest or for all projects? For example:
situation#1: I have three projects (one, two three) and the current is one, but I want to see lxc list for the project two without typing lxc project switch two and then lxc list.

situation#2: I have three projects (one, two three) and the current is one, but I want to see lxc list for all projects in order to see all containers in the host (maybe with one column showing the project to which it belongs)

Suggestion #1 should be easy conceptually, and it seems it makes sense. Ideally, in that case we’d have add --project flag to all commands, not just lxc list, but lxc list might be a sensible start.

Suggestion #2 would be a bit more problematic, and we should consider how it would play with a possible RBAC functionality that LXD should eventually grow.

Hi,
Suggestion #1: great!!
Suggestion #2: OK. For the moment I created an alias command to see all containers from all projects. IIt’s not cool but it works:

$ alias lxc_ls='for i in `lxc project list | grep -v NAME | grep "|" |cut -d "|" -f2 | cut -d "(" -f 1`; do echo $i; lxc project switch $i;  lxc ls -c n,4,s,P,S,l ; done'
$ lxc_ls
