How Do I Report a Bug?

You can report a bug by opening a new issue here. You have to complete the template section for bug reports. Be sure to specify all sections:

  • Version of OpenNebula
  • Component
  • Brief description
  • Expected behavior
  • How to reproduce

After an internal analysis, a bug issue will be set to one of the following statuses:

  • Pending: needs to be verified
  • Accepted: the bug has been verified and a priority assigned based on its severity (Low, Normal, High)
  • Planned: (Accepted with a specific milestone)
  • Closed: the issue is fixed, could not be reproduced (worksforme) or duplicates another one


How Do I Make a Feature Request?

You can report a bug by opening a new issue here. Be sure to specify all sections in the template:

  • Brief description of the new functionality
  • How are you going to use this new feature? Why do you need it?
  • Describe any changes to current interfaces including Sunstone, CLI and/or API

The issue will be used to track the discussions about the new feature. You should also specify if you are planing to allocate resources to implement the new feature. Once the new issue is created, you can bring it up for discussion on the Community Forum.

We will contact you as soon as possible to gather more information and to give you initial feedback about your Request issue. This may take some time, and is usually not done until the next release cycle, at the earliest. When we update the roadmap of the project and plan the features for the next release, we prioritize:

  • The features demanded by the projects and organizations sponsoring the open-source project
  • The most demanded features by the community.

After an internal analysis, your Request issue is categorized and will be Pending in the Backlog until:

  • It is interesting for the OpenNebula community and will be added as Accepted in the Backlog
  • It is decided that is not in the scope of the project and Closed

Backlog issues are long-medium term roadmap features to be implemented in OpenNebula. The priority of the issues will be graded (Low, Normal, High).

A backlog issue remains Accepted until:

It is assigned to a Milestone and so moved to the Feature list

  • It is Closed because it is no longer interesting for the OpenNebula Community
  • Feature issues are short term Accepted features with an assigned milestone.


You can’t perform that action at this time.
