Not on API level. In webadmin/userportal you can do it in one go, but that 
anyway triggers two different actions.

But now as I have tried it, if I create a VM from template or instance type 
(using API), the NICs are completely ignored.
It does not matter if template or instance type since instance types just 
inherit the behavior of the templates so are inheriting also the bug/missing 
logic etc.

For me it seems like a bug but not sure. Is there a reason why the NICs are 
ignored when the VM is created from a template with NICs using API?
What I think is that since the NIC can have different profiles assigned and 
this can be edited on the FE, this functionality of sending different profile 
for the specific NIC is just not implemented on API level, so the API just
completely ignores the NICs.
What do you think Lior?
