Subject Re: Jclouds openstack volume creation from image
Date Fri, 14 Nov 2014 12:30:19 GMT
Thanks. I see it now. It’s in the Block Storage (Cinder) API v2 under the Volumes section

POST /v2/​{tenant_id}​/volumes

Unfortunately jclouds doesn’t support the Cinder API v2 yet.

Can you create a JIRA [2] issue for that including the calls that are most important to you?

Would you be interested in developing support for the Cinder API v2 yourself?

Hi Everett,

It is possible in openstack. I have attached openstack API reference doc screenshot and here
is link for CLI reference

I want to download and upload volumes to openstack and looks like no cinder API for doing
this directly exists, so I upload volumes to glance store and download those images.

During upload, I upload these images created from  volume but then I need to convert these
images back to volumes and this is where I need this API.

Hi Shital,

I’m not sure what you’re trying to accomplish here. AFAIK, you can only create a volume
from empty block storage or from a snapshot. I don’t think creating a volume from an image
is possible.

Exactly what OpenStack operation are you trying to do?

Can you provide an example of doing it with the CLI or link us to some OpenStack doc that
shows what you’re trying to do?

image id is it supported?
