Setting a specific SCG as default for better integration with orchestration solutions
The concept of an SCG is Power specific, so the default OpenStack API does not offer a direct way to provide the SCG during LPAR deployment.
This creates a lot of work to integrate orchestration or DevOps solutions with PowerVC, because we have to find a technique to set the SCG ID through the extra_specs attribute of the flavor.
It would help a lot, if we could define an SCG as default for PowerVC, if the SCG ID will not be provided during the request. Today it will always select the Any host, All VIOS group in this case and a larger number of customers having their own SCG definition they need to use.
