Exclude specific projects from shared network

When configuring a shared network it appears in all projects. Would it be possible to select specific projects to be excluded from seeing and deploying onto the network?

Similarly it would nice to have this for host groups as well, more fine grained control of resource accessibility.

    Hey Barry, thanks for the request. For the multi-project support within PowerVC, we're leveraging the OpenStack multi-project support work under the covers. This is an example in which we try to maintain parity with the open source ecosystem to the greatest extent possible, so that we can pass along all the other benefits to our users (e.g., integration with other tools, like Terraform, etc.). For this particular case, if the network is deemed shared, it's accessible to any project.

    It'd be great to explore why self-service is too limiting as that's really the preferred way to create end user portals with fine-grained access control. Thanks again for your suggestions - we really appreciate your feedback!

    IBM has modified some of the information in this request. In particular, the Source field was updated to "Other". Previous value was "COMMON", which is intended for use by the COMMON User Group for IBM i on Power Systems. Please contact us if you have any questions.
