May be it is the wrong thread. “Configuration” is only a (bad) suggestion for the new feature name. By configuration I mean deployment configuration or computers configuration. It may be called “preconfigured tasks”.
We have several images for the same hosts, with different kinds of OS (linux, Windows, Windows server…) . Each time we switch from one to another (it can be twice or thrice a day) we have to do an image association (and OS before 1.2.0) and sometimes we have to do it quickly. What I mean is a superset of groups and images. By using it it can reduce time a little and error probability a lot.
As I said this feature should be useful for teaching environment.
I had a look to the code, but I am not very good at PHP and I haven’t much time for it. I would need some explanation of the code architecture to feel more confident with it.
Modifying groups implementation would be an error.
I think, it can be implemented just (always easy to say) by adding a table in database and a new page.
This page could be a minor (I am optimistic) change of the group page because all the actions would be the same.
Sorry if it is still not understandable, but I am not used to write english.
