Images in Glance can be in one the following statuses:
The image identifier has been reserved for an image in the Glance registry. No image data has been uploaded to Glance and the image size was not explicitly set to zero on creation.
Denotes that an image’s raw data is currently being uploaded to Glance. When an image is registered with a call to POST /images and there is an x-image-meta-location header present, that image will never be in the saving status (as the image data is already available in some other location).
Denotes an image that is fully available in Glance. This occurs when the image data is uploaded, or the image size is explicitly set to zero on creation.
Denotes that an error occurred during the uploading of an image’s data, and that the image is not readable.
Glance has retained the information about the image, but it is no longer available to use. An image in this state will be removed automatically at a later date.
This is similiar to deleted, however, Glance has not yet removed the image data. An image in this state is recoverable.
