Direct templates/volumes upload don't work in real world


Hello, devs.

Today I investigated how ACS handles file uploads. I thought there is a
Jetty-based implementation, but it looks like they are managed thru SSVM by
requesting unique upload URL and so on and so forth.

By design, it's good, despite that the URL which returned by an API
includes https://IP/<token> schema, where SSL is related to *.realip.com
and as a result, nothing really works in a browser without playing with
certs.

I know that CPVM uses 1-2-3-4.domain.com URL and works great with real-life
SSLs, no idea why SSVM doesn't act the same way.

Personally, I don't use direct uploading, but you know the users. They find
it very attractive and easy rather than managing thru external HTTP/HTTPS
servers.

So, basically, the feature doesn't work for real-life deployments.
