Hidden Objects


XenCenter 2023.x.x is currently in preview and is not supported for production use. Note that any future references to production support apply only when XenCenter 2023.x.x and XenServer 8 go from preview status to general availability.

You can use XenCenter 2023.x.x to manage your XenServer 8 and Citrix Hypervisor 8.2 CU1 non-production environments. However, to manage your Citrix Hypervisor 8.2 CU1 production environment, use XenCenter 8.2.7. For more information, see the XenCenter 8.2.7 documentation.

You can install XenCenter 8.2.7 and XenCenter 2023.x.x on the same system. Installing XenCenter 2023.x.x does not overwrite your XenCenter 8.2.7 installation.

Hide networks, PIFs, and VMs from XenCenter by adding the key HideFromXenCenter=true to the other_config parameter for the object in the XenServer Management API. For example, certain VMs can be hidden to prevent them being used directly by general users in your environment. Objects flagged with this key are hidden objects, and by default they do not appear anywhere in XenCenter.

To make hidden objects visible in XenCenter, on the View menu, click to select Hidden Objects. To hide them again, on the View menu, clear the Hidden Objects check mark.

See the developer documentation to find out more about flagging objects using the HideFromXenCenter key.
