    Thank You for entering and providing information to this RFE. Due the age and changes in the products over time additional functionality was introduced which could help to adress this RFE, this RFE will be closed.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.

    Please advise if this request is for Openstack only, or other cloud providers as well. Thanks.
