Sahara floating ip not release after cluster deletion

I am running CentOS 7 and the Sahara version that comes with it (comes with the openstack juno). I noticed that every time I delete a cluster, all the floating ips assigned to the cluster's instances don't get released. I need to manually delete them.

Is there a setting to automatically release them as soon as the cluster is deleted?

Thanks for your help!

The current steps are:

Allocate ---> Associate ---> Disassociate ---> Release

You need to complete an action for each. When you delete the instance you are disassociate but you aren't releasing. The idea is that a tenant may want to keep the Floating IP addresses they allocate to their account. The idea of allocation and release is outside of the scope of associate and disassociate.

You may want to look for a 'release' option. At least that's how it works when manual.

Thanks for your quick response. but as far as a remember on the previous sahara version, when I automatically assigned the floating ip to the instance during cluster creation, they are automatically released when the cluster is successfully deleted (I might be wrong, but that's how i remember)
