service broker user delegation beyond service-dashboard


Guillaume Berche
 

Hi,

We are seing an increasing number of cases where service brokers need to
act on behalf of CF users, and where the service dashboard support is too
limited:
- dashboard URL is not exposed to requesters until the end of the provision
phase
- dashboard URL needs users browsing to it, making it hard to preserve
headless interactions (such as scripts or ci) using the CLI or CC API.

As suggested by Dieu and Shannon over exchanges we had, I formalized my
perception of the problem to be solved and possible ways to address it into:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1DoAbJa_YiGIJbOZ_zPzakh7sc4TB9Tmadq41cfSX0dw/edit?usp=sharing

I'd interested in hearing the CF pms and the community feedback on whether
solving the above problems would benefit the CF community, or whether other
workarounds/solutions exists that I had missed.

Thanks in advance,

Guillaume.
