Thanks for this initiative.


I can help with getting the feedback to the developers once we have the
foundation user committee structure in place. This will give regular
meetings with both the board and the TC for discussions on items such as you
have raised.


We should also add a severity of the problem . i.e. is this an annoyance but
can be worked around through to a show stopper for production use ? We could
start with critical, high, medium, low as for the bug reports.

Subject: [Openstack-operators] Operations use cases/pain points


Hey Folks,

 I'm trying to gather operations use cases and pain points on the new
Openstack Operations wiki (http://wiki.openstack.org/Operations).


The sort of things I'm looking for are the day to day tasks that Operators
need to perform, which are difficult (or impossible) with the current
Openstack toolset. Some examples:

1.	It's not possible to list the roles for multi-tenant users. Eg, if a
user is a member of multiple tenants, how do I (with a single command) list
their role for all of those tenants?
2.	The CLI depends on UUIDs. So adding a single user to a tenant looks
like "keystone user-role-add --role_id = XXXX-XXXXXX-XXXXXXX-XXXAAA
3.	Live migration requires that each compute node NFS export the
instances directory to all other compute nodes. That's not great from a
security perspective.

And so on. My goal here is to capture pain points from Operators, and make
sure that feedback is funneled back to the development community. I'm
beginning to track these on the wiki here:
http://wiki.openstack.org/OperationsUseCases The format isn't the best, but
it's there. If you don't want to edit the wiki, feel free to reply to me and
I'll add your use case. I'll try to clean up the format as we go and start
opening bugs to track these enhancements/feature requests.
