Description

Hi,
I am trying to share a directory between a host and its guest, I have to do so by adding raw data to the template that will be passed to the host.

<filesystem type='mount' accessmode='passthrough'>
<source dir='/scratch/OpenNebula/'/>
<target dir='scratch'/>
</filesystem>

Is there any way to add this as an option to the web interface?

Best regards.
Josep.

This could be interesting, moving it to backlog.

If virtfs became configurable by sunstone UI, it could be interesting to restrict usable path and forbid it from RAW.

A user who can create a template could access sensible data of the physical machine.

Reagrds.
