I have a prospect who asks me the following questions :
- could it be possible to validate the availability of resources - like IP - from outside the tool. WFA will check on the cluster if the IP is not used, but how to be certain that IP is not "reserved but not yet attributed" ?
if wfa could check on a file (csv or another format) it could assign an IP address without future conflict
- could we have a filter or a finder who list resources by performance ?

If you have another database that has your reserved ips in it, you can add that database to wfa and write a query that checks for said ip.

WFA can definitely do it and in multiple possible ways. If you have a CSV file with list of Reserved/Available IPs then WFA can check on it by the following ways:
Which is the better approach? Well, they all have their advantages, and none of them are too difficult. So take your pick.
@ could we have a filter or a finder who list resources by performance ?
Filters are basically SQL queries querying data from WFA DB. So if you have performance data in your WFA DB through Datasource acquisition, you can certainly write filters and finders.
