inconsistent behavior in admin dashboard

Asked by AARON ZHANG on 2014-06-27

In Admin dashboard -> System Panel -> Networks, admin has full operations on network (view, create, edit, delete);
but in Admin dashboard -> System Panel -> Routers, admin has only view and delete operations (set Gateway and add interface operations are missing). Is it the right behavior? Shall admin dashboard follow the same policy for all resources?

Please note that Launchpad Answers is deprecated for OpenStack projects, maybe consider using the dev list for this kind of questions in the future?

In general the admin panels don't allow creation / launching etc because it makes context like "what is the current tenant" unclear. The Project dashboard should be used to create such project resources. The Admin dashboard is meant to manage existing resources across tenants. I think networks is an exception because only an admin can create shared/external networks for use by all tenants.
