Logical Names

Registered by Michael Davies on 2014-11-26

Everything that is tracked in Ironic is done via UUID. This isn't very friendly to humans. We should support nodes being referenced by a logical name, in addition to the current method of being able to refer to them via UUID. This should be supported in the REST API and in our command-line client.
