Charge display when changing VSI configuration on the portal


We want to improve the interface of the VSI configration changing screen.

It is difficult to understand the charge display contents when changing the VSI configuration.

We want to see the following in one screen:

- The monthly fee for the current configuration of this VSI (including network and optional items)

- Charges that will be added to the change (new charges) (Delta)

- The monthly fee after the configuration change for this VSI (including network and optional items)


When we change the VSI configuration, the display for changing VSI configration on the portal are confusing.

When we change the VSI configuration on the portal, we want to know the total charge for the current configuration and the total charge for the changed configuration. (We want to know the total charge for all the configuration items of the target VSI, not just CPU, memory, and HDD.)

Now we think that it is very difficult to understand the current total amount of this VSI and the change amount when changing the configuration of VSI.

So we are requesting to improve the price (fee) display on the order screen when changing the configuration.
