I am now running Icehouse - dashboard.

How can we disable the terminate instances click button? maybe the admin can only do it. It was too confusing for users as they thought it will shutdown when actually deleting the VM instance.

You should look into the customisation module at for tips on how to modify existing panels / tables.

What you want to do is override the Instances table to remove "TerminateInstance" from the table_actions:

Once that's done, you might want to consider putting your script in a "plug-in" to make it upgrade-safe (as in, updating Horizon won't overwrite your modification). See for more information.

I believe instances are tenant specific to start & terminate.
