We'd like the ability to offer clients any template that exits the full library (OnApp template Repo).
What that means is, there should be functionality in the UI, but most importantly in the API, which will list all available, current template options from the OnApp template repo. Right now it is only possible to offer customers templates that we have installed on the CP server.
Yes, we could install every single template available from Onapp on the CP server, but this is a waste of space and bandwidth. It would be much better to just grab a list of templates from the repo. That way, order forms on the web host's site will always have the most current template list. Then if an order for a template not yet installed on the CP server comes in, the host can deal with that by installing the new template on their cloud, then provisioning the VM as normal.
Right now maintaining the order forms with the latest, greatest template list is additional, manual work which could be automated.
