Set default provisioning method

Can’t set default provisioning method for new hosts.
Need to manually change it every time

Expected outcome:
Option somewhere to set default value for Provisioning Method
Setting it in host group, compute profile or even Global setting would be a better implementation than current hardcoded version.

i did find this old bug ticket and added a comment, but as of yet there is no response

Since the issue has 8 upvotes, I will try to look into that. But no promises!

Thank you very much!
Any type of default setting will do for me, we will only be using boot disk to provision, so having to manually move the radio check every time gets real annoying real fast, and increases risk of human-error, but others may need it set on a hostgroup / profile level - either way works for me :smiley:

Any news on this old issue?
This is still quite annoying to have to do every time, but i understand this is a very-low priority.

Sorry no ETA, rather it is unlikely that I would find time for this. Patches are welcome tho!

Figured as much, thanks for the update.

Unfortunately I’m no developer and couldn’t even manage to set up the dev env when i tried last ( couple years ago ) and wouldn’t have any idea where to begin, so I’ll have to live with this extra click for now, until someone else gets annoyed by it that has the ability to patch it for us all.

I would comment as a user that would love to see this feature - any way to set a provisioning default would be much appreciated and reduce that one manual click (that sometimes is forgotten).
