End to End child cluster lifecycle Management via CP4MCM

Hello Team

CP4MCM cannot manage the child cluster life cycle end to end for the moment . It can only delete the provisioned cluster

I would like to raise a feature request for below items.

CP4PCM should be able to resize the child cluster from MCM UI.

CP4PCM should be able to start/stop the child cluster from MCM UI.


Why we need this?


I believe the CP4MCM is meant for managing multiple cloud service on multiple cloud and with this we also would like manage the entire lifecycle of the child cluster accross the different cloud, without this feature the provisioned cluster via mcm cannot be managed fully and which is a bottleneck in terms of usage.
