vCloud Director VS Service Add-ons

Service Add-ons functionality allows you to offer to your customers additional services on top of your current IaaS Virtual Server offering.

 Before managing service add-ons, ensure that:

  1. vCloud Director is added to OnApp UI.
  2. RabbitMQ settings are set in config/rabbit_mq/vcloud/credentials.yml.
  3. Login and password are set for vCenter (Control Panel should have access to vCenter directly) in Settings > Compute resources > Compute resource's label > Tools > vCenter passwords.
  4. Guest customization is enabled on a vCloud Director VS and Admin Password is set.

When you have the service add-on functionality enabled and everything is properly configured, you can assign service add-on to your vCloud Director VS.

You can monitor the total cost for all service add-ons inside the company. For this  go to your Control Panel’s Groups menu > your User group’s label > .View User Group link.

Ensure that Manage Service Add-ons for all virtual servers and/or Manage Service Add-ons for own virtual servers permissions are on before managing VS service add-ons. For more information about permissions refer to the Permissions section.
