Loadrunner 12.53 Cloud Load generator dangerous feature

Currently on multiple projects doing LR testing utlizing Load Generators in the Cloud. Some HP genius decided to put in a feature/button for cloud Load Generators that allows a tester to DELETE AN ENTIRE CLOUD SERVER INSTANCE from the Loadrunenr Controller/Add/Delete Generator option.   That is a horrible and dangerous feature to have.

This button needs to be removed from the next service pack and or/release.  To view. Launch Controller > Select Load Geneartor > Set up Cloud Perfmisions > Add LG From Cloud Button > Provision New Generator> Cloud Server LG added > Select LG > Click Delete button .  Delete Load Generator Pop up window displayed. 

Feauture that needs to be removed:   Button:  DELETE AND TERMINATE      Clicking on this button will permananetly delete your entire cloud server VM. 

In no way, should a tester have the ability with a simple button click to delete an entire VM instance inside the LR Controller.

Thank you for sharing this input. I am sorry for the trouble.

We will look at it ASAP to review the current functionality, the original specifications and the required steps moving forward.
