There can be a use-case where vSphere UUID for a VM is needed. It can be used for monitoring or automation purposes.
- Platform9 Managed OpenStack - v3.6.0 and Higher
There are two ways to accomplish this in the Clarity UI
- You can find the vSphere UUID by clicking on an individual VM instance in the Clarity UI under Instances tab and note down the "Openstack ID"
- A user can view the UUIDs for all the instances by enabling the Openstack ID as a Column in the Clarity UI. This can be done by browsing to Instances View -> Click on the Settings button in the right corner -> Add Openstack ID field -> Save
Now you can view the instance UUIDs for all the VM instances in the Clarity UI.
