API v2 - Beta platform - acronis infra has backend_type null

Hi,

While testing the API v2 against the beta cyber cloud platform, I've noticed that the backend_type field of the infra provided there is set as a null value instead of having the expected string "acronis". This is a bit problematic since this value helps in the identification of the infra. Next, I paste the json info of the beta infra, as given by the API:

{
    "location_id": "edbbebe2-f8b0-4176-89b0-b6eb19dd239a",
    "version": 38,
    "name": "fes-eu3-baas.acronis.com",
    "backend_type": null,
    "owner_tenant_id": "8beef6be-c136-4ef6-a900-0e74c703ddcc",
    "platform_owned": true,
    "id": "019097a6-114f-4418-bd54-e01ef049f209",
    "readonly": true,
    "url": "abgw://fes-eu3-baas.acronis.com:44445/",
    "capabilities": [
        "backup"
    ]
}

Related to this, I've seen (in the production platform) that the partner-owned infras have also the backend_type as null. As a suggestion to improve this, I think it would be much clearer if they were specified with a string like "partner", since the null value itself is meaningless.

Thank you, Eduardo for your feedback.

1. As I know all the infra info for all production infrastructures are set correctly.

2. I will deliver your feedback regarding null on the beta-cloud and return as soon as I receive an answer.

3. I don't sync that changing backend_type for a partner-owned infrastructure can be done simply, but as well will deliver your request to PM.

  1. Yes, as far I've seen, the backend_type in production clouds are ok for acronis owned infras.
  2. Good, thanks.
  3. As I said in my first post, it's just a suggestion for what I think could be a little improvement in the information given about the partner-owned infras. But thanks for delivering it.

I've created a task to ask our data center operations to fix backend_type at the beta-cloud. Will keep you updated.

A backend_type for dev-cloud/beta-cloud was set to appropriate value.
