glance-scrubber.conf

DEFAULT

allow_additional_image_properties
Type

boolean

Default

True

Allow users to add additional/custom properties to images.

Glance defines a standard set of properties (in its schema) that appear on every image. These properties are also known as base properties. In addition to these properties, Glance allows users to add custom properties to images. These are known as additional properties.

By default, this configuration option is set to True and users are allowed to add additional properties. The number of additional properties that can be added to an image can be controlled via image_property_quota configuration option.

Possible values:
  • True

  • False

Related options:
  • image_property_quota

Warning

This option is deprecated for removal since Ussuri. Its value may be silently ignored in the future.

Reason

This option is redundant. Control custom image property usage via the ‘image_property_quota’ configuration option. This option is scheduled to be removed during the Victoria development cycle.

hashing_algorithm
Type

string

Default

sha512

Secure hashing algorithm used for computing the ‘os_hash_value’ property.

This option configures the Glance “multihash”, which consists of two image properties: the ‘os_hash_algo’ and the ‘os_hash_value’. The ‘os_hash_algo’ will be populated by the value of this configuration option, and the ‘os_hash_value’ will be populated by the hexdigest computed when the algorithm is applied to the uploaded or imported image data.

The value must be a valid secure hash algorithm name recognized by the python ‘hashlib’ library. You can determine what these are by examining the ‘hashlib.algorithms_available’ data member of the version of the library being used in your Glance installation. For interoperability purposes, however, we recommend that you use the set of secure hash names supplied by the ‘hashlib.algorithms_guaranteed’ data member because those algorithms are guaranteed to be supported by the ‘hashlib’ library on all platforms. Thus, any image consumer using ‘hashlib’ locally should be able to verify the ‘os_hash_value’ of the image.

The default value of ‘sha512’ is a performant secure hash algorithm.

If this option is misconfigured, any attempts to store image data will fail. For that reason, we recommend using the default value.

Possible values:
  • Any secure hash algorithm name recognized by the Python ‘hashlib’ library

Related options:
  • None

image_member_quota
Type

integer

Default

128

Maximum number of image members per image.

This limits the maximum of users an image can be shared with. Any negative value is interpreted as unlimited.

Related options:
  • None

image_property_quota
Type

integer

Default

128

Maximum number of properties allowed on an image.

This enforces an upper limit on the number of additional properties an image can have. Any negative value is interpreted as unlimited.

NOTE: This won’t have any impact if additional properties are disabled. Please refer to allow_additional_image_properties.

Related options:
  • allow_additional_image_properties

image_tag_quota
Type

integer

Default

128

Maximum number of tags allowed on an image.

Any negative value is interpreted as unlimited.

Related options:
  • None

image_location_quota
Type

integer

Default

10

Maximum number of locations allowed on an image.

Any negative value is interpreted as unlimited.

Related options:
  • None

limit_param_default
Type

integer

Default

25

Minimum Value

1

The default number of results to return for a request.

Responses to certain API requests, like list images, may return multiple items. The number of results returned can be explicitly controlled by specifying the limit parameter in the API request. However, if a limit parameter is not specified, this configuration value will be used as the default number of results to be returned for any API request.

NOTES:
  • The value of this configuration option may not be greater than the value specified by api_limit_max.

  • Setting this to a very large value may slow down database queries and increase response times. Setting this to a very low value may result in poor user experience.

Possible values:
  • Any positive integer

Related options:
  • api_limit_max

api_limit_max
Type

integer

Default

1000

Minimum Value

1

Maximum number of results that could be returned by a request.

As described in the help text of limit_param_default, some requests may return multiple results. The number of results to be returned are governed either by the limit parameter in the request or the limit_param_default configuration option. The value in either case, can’t be greater than the absolute maximum defined by this configuration option. Anything greater than this value is trimmed down to the maximum value defined here.

NOTE: Setting this to a very large value may slow down database

queries and increase response times. Setting this to a very low value may result in poor user experience.

Possible values:
  • Any positive integer

Related options:
  • limit_param_default

show_image_direct_url
Type

boolean

Default

False

Show direct image location when returning an image.

This configuration option indicates whether to show the direct image location when returning image details to the user. The direct image location is where the image data is stored in backend storage. This image location is shown under the image property direct_url.

When multiple image locations exist for an image, the best location is displayed based on the location strategy indicated by the configuration option location_strategy.

NOTES:
  • Revealing image locations can present a GRAVE SECURITY RISK as image locations can sometimes include credentials. Hence, this is set to False by default. Set this to True with EXTREME CAUTION and ONLY IF you know what you are doing!

  • If an operator wishes to avoid showing any image location(s) to the user, then both this option and show_multiple_locations MUST be set to False.

Possible values:
  • True

  • False

Related options:
  • show_multiple_locations

  • location_strategy

show_multiple_locations
Type

boolean

Default

False

Show all image locations when returning an image.

This configuration option indicates whether to show all the image locations when returning image details to the user. When multiple image locations exist for an image, the locations are ordered based on the location strategy indicated by the configuration opt location_strategy. The image locations are shown under the image property locations.

NOTES:
  • Revealing image locations can present a GRAVE SECURITY RISK as image locations can sometimes include credentials. Hence, this is set to False by default. Set this to True with EXTREME CAUTION and ONLY IF you know what you are doing!

  • See https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/OSSN/OSSN-0065 for more information.

  • If an operator wishes to avoid showing any image location(s) to the user, then both this option and show_image_direct_url MUST be set to False.

Possible values:
  • True

  • False

Related options:
  • show_image_direct_url

  • location_strategy

Warning

This option is deprecated for removal since Newton. Its value may be silently ignored in the future.

Reason

Use of this option, deprecated since Newton, is a security risk and will be removed once we figure out a way to satisfy those use cases that currently require it. An earlier announcement that the same functionality can be achieved with greater granularity by using policies is incorrect. You cannot work around this option via policy configuration at the present time, though that is the direction we believe the fix will take. Please keep an eye on the Glance release notes to stay up to date on progress in addressing this issue.

image_size_cap
Type

integer

Default

1099511627776

Minimum Value

1

Maximum Value

9223372036854775808

Maximum size of image a user can upload in bytes.

An image upload greater than the size mentioned here would result in an image creation failure. This configuration option defaults to 1099511627776 bytes (1 TiB).

NOTES:
  • This value should only be increased after careful consideration and must be set less than or equal to 8 EiB (9223372036854775808).

  • This value must be set with careful consideration of the backend storage capacity. Setting this to a very low value may result in a large number of image failures. And, setting this to a very large value may result in faster consumption of storage. Hence, this must be set according to the nature of images created and storage capacity available.

Possible values:
  • Any positive number less than or equal to 9223372036854775808

user_storage_quota
Type

string

Default

0

Maximum amount of image storage per tenant.

This enforces an upper limit on the cumulative storage consumed by all images of a tenant across all stores. This is a per-tenant limit.

The default unit for this configuration option is Bytes. However, storage units can be specified using case-sensitive literals B, KB, MB, GB and TB representing Bytes, KiloBytes, MegaBytes, GigaBytes and TeraBytes respectively. Note that there should not be any space between the value and unit. Value 0 signifies no quota enforcement. Negative values are invalid and result in errors.

Possible values:
  • A string that is a valid concatenation of a non-negative integer representing the storage value and an optional string literal representing storage units as mentioned above.

Related options:
  • None

pydev_worker_debug_host
Type

Provide a string value representing the hostname or IP of the pydev server to use for debugging. The pydev server listens for debug connections on this address, facilitating remote debugging in Glance.

Possible values:
  • Valid hostname

  • Valid IP address

Related options:
  • None

pydev_worker_debug_port
Type

port number

Default

5678

Minimum Value

0

Maximum Value

Possible values:
  • A valid port number

Related options:
  • None

metadata_encryption_key
Type

string

Default

<None>

AES key for encrypting store location metadata.

Provide a string value representing the AES cipher to use for encrypting Glance store metadata.

NOTE: The AES key to use must be set to a random string of length 16, 24 or 32 bytes.

Possible values:
  • String value representing a valid AES key

Related options:
  • None

digest_algorithm
Type

string

Default

sha256

Digest algorithm to use for digital signature.

Provide a string value representing the digest algorithm to use for generating digital signatures. By default, sha256 is used.

To get a list of the available algorithms supported by the version of OpenSSL on your platform, run the command: openssl list-message-digest-algorithms. Examples are ‘sha1’, ‘sha256’, and ‘sha512’.

NOTE: digest_algorithm is not related to Glance’s image signing and verification. It is only used to sign the universally unique identifier (UUID) as a part of the certificate file and key file validation.

Possible values:
  • An OpenSSL message digest algorithm identifier

Relation options:
  • None

node_staging_uri
Type

string

Default

file:///tmp/staging/

The URL provides location where the temporary data will be stored

This option is for Glance internal use only. Glance will save the image data uploaded by the user to ‘staging’ endpoint during the image import process.

This option does not change the ‘staging’ API endpoint by any means.

NOTE: It is discouraged to use same path as [task]/work_dir

NOTE: ‘file://<absolute-directory-path>’ is the only option api_image_import flow will support for now.

NOTE: The staging path must be on shared filesystem available to all Glance API nodes.

Possible values:
  • String starting with ‘file://’ followed by absolute FS path

Related options:
  • [task]/work_dir

enabled_import_methods
Type

list

Default

['glance-direct', 'web-download', 'copy-image']

‘glance-direct’, ‘copy-image’ and ‘web-download’ are enabled by default.

Related options:
  • [DEFAULT]/node_staging_uri

scrub_time
Type

integer

Default

0

Minimum Value

0

The amount of time, in seconds, to delay image scrubbing.

When delayed delete is turned on, an image is put into pending_delete state upon deletion until the scrubber deletes its image data. Typically, soon after the image is put into pending_delete state, it is available for scrubbing. However, scrubbing can be delayed until a later point using this configuration option. This option denotes the time period an image spends in pending_delete state before it is available for scrubbing.

It is important to realize that this has storage implications. The larger the scrub_time, the longer the time to reclaim backend storage from deleted images.

Possible values:
  • Any non-negative integer

Related options:
  • delayed_delete

scrub_pool_size
Type

integer

Default

1

Minimum Value

1

The size of thread pool to be used for scrubbing images.

When there are a large number of images to scrub, it is beneficial to scrub images in parallel so that the scrub queue stays in control and the backend storage is reclaimed in a timely fashion. This configuration option denotes the maximum number of images to be scrubbed in parallel. The default value is one, which signifies serial scrubbing. Any value above one indicates parallel scrubbing.

Possible values:
  • Any non-zero positive integer

Related options:
  • delayed_delete

delayed_delete
Type

boolean

Default

False

Turn on/off delayed delete.

Typically when an image is deleted, the glance-api service puts the image into deleted state and deletes its data at the same time. Delayed delete is a feature in Glance that delays the actual deletion of image data until a later point in time (as determined by the configuration option scrub_time). When delayed delete is turned on, the glance-api service puts the image into pending_delete state upon deletion and leaves the image data in the storage backend for the image scrubber to delete at a later time. The image scrubber will move the image into deleted state upon successful deletion of image data.

NOTE: When delayed delete is turned on, image scrubber MUST be running as a periodic task to prevent the backend storage from filling up with undesired usage.

Possible values:
  • True

  • False

Related options:
  • scrub_time

  • wakeup_time

  • scrub_pool_size

wakeup_time
Type

integer

Default

300

Minimum Value

0

Time interval, in seconds, between scrubber runs in daemon mode.

Scrubber can be run either as a cron job or daemon. When run as a daemon, this configuration time specifies the time period between two runs. When the scrubber wakes up, it fetches and scrubs all pending_delete images that are available for scrubbing after taking scrub_time into consideration.

If the wakeup time is set to a large number, there may be a large number of images to be scrubbed for each run. Also, this impacts how quickly the backend storage is reclaimed.

Possible values:
  • Any non-negative integer

Related options:
  • daemon

  • delayed_delete

daemon
Type

boolean

Default

False

Run scrubber as a daemon.

This boolean configuration option indicates whether scrubber should run as a long-running process that wakes up at regular intervals to scrub images. The wake up interval can be specified using the configuration option wakeup_time.

If this configuration option is set to False, which is the default value, scrubber runs once to scrub images and exits. In this case, if the operator wishes to implement continuous scrubbing of images, scrubber needs to be scheduled as a cron job.

Possible values:
  • True

  • False

Related options:
  • wakeup_time

restore
Type

string

Default

<None>

Restore the image status from ‘pending_delete’ to ‘active’.

This option is used by administrator to reset the image’s status from ‘pending_delete’ to ‘active’ when the image is deleted by mistake and ‘pending delete’ feature is enabled in Glance. Please make sure the glance-scrubber daemon is stopped before restoring the image to avoid image data inconsistency.

Possible values:
  • image’s uuid

debug
Type

boolean

Default

False

Mutable

This option can be changed without restarting.

If set to true, the logging level will be set to DEBUG instead of the default INFO level.

log_config_append
Type

string

Default

<None>

Mutable

This option can be changed without restarting.

The name of a logging configuration file. This file is appended to any existing logging configuration files. For details about logging configuration files, see the Python logging module documentation.

filesystem_store_datadirs
Type

multi-valued

Default

''

List of directories and their priorities to which the filesystem backend store writes images.

The filesystem store can be configured to store images in multiple directories as opposed to using a single directory specified by the filesystem_store_datadir configuration option. When using multiple directories, each directory can be given an optional priority to specify the preference order in which they should be used. Priority is an integer that is concatenated to the directory path with a colon where a higher value indicates higher priority. When two directories have the same priority, the directory with most free space is used. When no priority is specified, it defaults to zero.

More information on configuring filesystem store with multiple store directories can be found at https://docs.openstack.org/glance/latest/configuration/configuring.html

NOTE: This directory is used only when filesystem store is used as a storage backend. Either filesystem_store_datadir or filesystem_store_datadirs option must be specified in glance-api.conf.

Provide an integer value representing the size in megabytes to chunk Glance images into. The default chunk size is 8 megabytes. For optimal performance, the value should be a power of two.

When Ceph’s RBD object storage system is used as the storage backend for storing Glance images, the images are chunked into objects of the size set using this option. These chunked objects are then stored across the distributed block data store to use for Glance.

Possible Values:
  • Any positive integer value

Related options:
  • None

rbd_store_pool
Type

string

Default

images

RADOS pool in which images are stored.

When RBD is used as the storage backend for storing Glance images, the images are stored by means of logical grouping of the objects (chunks of images) into a pool. Each pool is defined with the number of placement groups it can contain. The default pool that is used is ‘images’.

More information on the RBD storage backend can be found here: http://ceph.com/planet/how-data-is-stored-in-ceph-cluster/

Possible Values:
  • A valid pool name

Related options:
  • None

This option has a sample default set, which means that its actual default value may vary from the one documented above.

The region of Swift endpoint to use by Glance.

Provide a string value representing a Swift region where Glance can connect to for image storage. By default, there is no region set.

When Glance uses Swift as the storage backend to store images for a specific tenant that has multiple endpoints, setting of a Swift region with swift_store_region allows Glance to connect to Swift in the specified region as opposed to a single region connectivity.

This option can be configured for both single-tenant and multi-tenant storage.

NOTE: Setting the region with swift_store_region is tenant-specific and is necessary only if the tenant has multiple endpoints across different regions.

Possible values:
  • A string value representing a valid Swift region.

Related Options:
  • None

swift_store_endpoint
Type

string

Default

https://swift.openstack.example.org/v1/path_not_including_container_name

This option has a sample default set, which means that its actual default value may vary from the one documented above.

The URL endpoint to use for Swift backend storage.

Provide a string value representing the URL endpoint to use for storing Glance images in Swift store. By default, an endpoint is not set and the storage URL returned by auth is used. Setting an endpoint with swift_store_endpoint overrides the storage URL and is used for Glance image storage.

NOTE: The URL should include the path up to, but excluding the container. The location of an object is obtained by appending the container and object to the configured URL.

Possible values:
  • String value representing a valid URL path up to a Swift container

Related Options:
  • None

swift_store_endpoint_type
Type

string

Default

publicURL

Valid Values

publicURL, adminURL, internalURL

  • swift_store_endpoint

swift_store_service_type
Type

string

Default

object-store

Type of Swift service to use.

Provide a string value representing the service type to use for storing images while using Swift backend storage. The default service type is set to object-store.

NOTE: If swift_store_auth_version is set to 2, the value for this configuration option needs to be object-store. If using a higher version of Keystone or a different auth scheme, this option may be modified.

Possible values:
  • A string representing a valid service type for Swift storage.

Related Options:
  • None

swift_store_container
Type

string

Default

glance

Name of single container to store images/name prefix for multiple containers

When a single container is being used to store images, this configuration option indicates the container within the Glance account to be used for storing all images. When multiple containers are used to store images, this will be the name prefix for all containers. Usage of single/multiple containers can be controlled using the configuration option swift_store_multiple_containers_seed.

When using multiple containers, the containers will be named after the value set for this configuration option with the first N chars of the image UUID as the suffix delimited by an underscore (where N is specified by swift_store_multiple_containers_seed).

Example: if the seed is set to 3 and swift_store_container = glance, then an image with UUID fdae39a1-bac5-4238-aba4-69bcc726e848 would be placed in the container glance_fda. All dashes in the UUID are included when creating the container name but do not count toward the character limit, so when N=10 the container name would be glance_fdae39a1-ba.

Possible values:
  • If using single container, this configuration option can be any string that is a valid swift container name in Glance’s Swift account

  • If using multiple containers, this configuration option can be any string as long as it satisfies the container naming rules enforced by Swift. The value of swift_store_multiple_containers_seed should be taken into account as well.

  • swift_store_create_container_on_put

swift_store_large_object_size
Type

integer

Default

5120

Minimum Value

1

The size threshold, in MB, after which Glance will start segmenting image data.

Swift has an upper limit on the size of a single uploaded object. By default, this is 5GB. To upload objects bigger than this limit, objects are segmented into multiple smaller objects that are tied together with a manifest file. For more detail, refer to https://docs.openstack.org/swift/latest/overview_large_objects.html

This configuration option specifies the size threshold over which the Swift driver will start segmenting image data into multiple smaller files. Currently, the Swift driver only supports creating Dynamic Large Objects.

NOTE: This should be set by taking into account the large object limit enforced by the Swift cluster in consideration.

Possible values:
  • A positive integer that is less than or equal to the large object limit enforced by the Swift cluster in consideration.

Related options:
  • swift_store_large_object_chunk_size

swift_store_large_object_chunk_size
Type

integer

Default

200

Minimum Value

1

The maximum size, in MB, of the segments when image data is segmented.

When image data is segmented to upload images that are larger than the limit enforced by the Swift cluster, image data is broken into segments that are no bigger than the size specified by this configuration option. Refer to swift_store_large_object_size for more detail.

For example: if swift_store_large_object_size is 5GB and swift_store_large_object_chunk_size is 1GB, an image of size 6.2GB will be segmented into 7 segments where the first six segments will be 1GB in size and the seventh segment will be 0.2GB.

Possible values:
  • A positive integer that is less than or equal to the large object limit enforced by Swift cluster in consideration.

Related options:
  • swift_store_large_object_size

swift_store_create_container_on_put
Type

boolean

Default

False

Possible values:
  • True

  • False

Related options:
  • None

swift_store_multi_tenant
Type

boolean

Default

False

Store images in tenant’s Swift account.

This enables multi-tenant storage mode which causes Glance images to be stored in tenant specific Swift accounts. If this is disabled, Glance stores all images in its own account. More details multi-tenant store can be found at https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/GlanceSwiftTenantSpecificStorage

NOTE: If using multi-tenant swift store, please make sure that you do not set a swift configuration file with the ‘swift_store_config_file’ option.

Possible values:
  • True

  • False

Related options:
  • swift_store_config_file

swift_store_multiple_containers_seed
Type

integer

Default

0

Minimum Value

0

Maximum Value

32

Seed indicating the number of containers to use for storing images.

When using a single-tenant store, images can be stored in one or more than one containers. When set to 0, all images will be stored in one single container. When set to an integer value between 1 and 32, multiple containers will be used to store images. This configuration option will determine how many containers are created. The total number of containers that will be used is equal to 16^N, so if this config option is set to 2, then 16^2=256 containers will be used to store images.

Please refer to swift_store_container for more detail on the naming convention. More detail about using multiple containers can be found at https://specs.openstack.org/openstack/glance-specs/specs/kilo/swift-store-multiple-containers.html

NOTE: This is used only when swift_store_multi_tenant is disabled.

Possible values:
  • A non-negative integer less than or equal to 32

Related options:
  • None

swift_store_ssl_compression
Type

boolean

Default

True

SSL layer compression for HTTPS Swift requests.

Provide a boolean value to determine whether or not to compress HTTPS Swift requests for images at the SSL layer. By default, compression is enabled.

When using Swift as the backend store for Glance image storage, SSL layer compression of HTTPS Swift requests can be set using this option. If set to False, SSL layer compression of HTTPS Swift requests is disabled. Disabling this option may improve performance for images which are already in a compressed format, for example, qcow2.

Possible values:
  • True

  • False

Related Options:
  • None

swift_store_retry_get_count
Type

integer

Default

0

Minimum Value

0

The number of times a Swift download will be retried before the request fails.

Provide an integer value representing the number of times an image download must be retried before erroring out. The default value is zero (no retry on a failed image download). When set to a positive integer value, swift_store_retry_get_count ensures that the download is attempted this many more times upon a download failure before sending an error message.

Possible values:
  • Zero

  • Positive integer value

Related Options:
  • None

swift_store_expire_soon_interval
Type

integer

Default

60

Minimum Value

0

Time in seconds defining the size of the window in which a new token may be requested before the current token is due to expire.

Typically, the Swift storage driver fetches a new token upon the expiration of the current token to ensure continued access to Swift. However, some Swift transactions (like uploading image segments) may not recover well if the token expires on the fly.

Hence, by fetching a new token before the current token expiration, we make sure that the token does not expire or is close to expiry before a transaction is attempted. By default, the Swift storage driver requests for a new token 60 seconds or less before the current token expiration.

Possible values:
  • Zero

  • Positive integer value

Related Options:
  • None

swift_store_use_trusts
Type

boolean

Default

True

Use trusts for multi-tenant Swift store.

This option instructs the Swift store to create a trust for each add/get request when the multi-tenant store is in use. Using trusts allows the Swift store to avoid problems that can be caused by an authentication token expiring during the upload or download of data.

By default, swift_store_use_trusts is set to True``(use of trusts is enabled). If set to ``False, a user token is used for the Swift connection instead, eliminating the overhead of trust creation.

NOTE: This option is considered only when swift_store_multi_tenant is set to True

Possible values:
  • True

  • False

Related options:
  • swift_store_multi_tenant

swift_buffer_on_upload
Type

boolean

Default

False

Buffer image segments before upload to Swift.

Provide a boolean value to indicate whether or not Glance should buffer image data to disk while uploading to swift. This enables Glance to resume uploads on error.

NOTES: When enabling this option, one should take great care as this increases disk usage on the API node. Be aware that depending upon how the file system is configured, the disk space used for buffering may decrease the actual disk space available for the glance image cache. Disk utilization will cap according to the following equation: (swift_store_large_object_chunk_size * workers * 1000)

Possible values:
  • True

  • False

Related options:
  • swift_upload_buffer_dir

default_swift_reference
Type

string

vmware_store_image_dir
Type

string

Default

/openstack_glance

The directory where the glance images will be stored in the datastore.

vmware_insecure
Type

boolean

Default

False

Set verification of the ESX/vCenter server certificate.

This configuration option takes a boolean value to determine whether or not to verify the ESX/vCenter server certificate. If this option is set to True, the ESX/vCenter server certificate is not verified. If this option is set to False, then the default CA truststore is used for verification.

This option is ignored if the “vmware_ca_file” option is set. In that case, the ESX/vCenter server certificate will then be verified using the file specified using the “vmware_ca_file” option .

Possible Values:
  • True

  • False

Absolute path to the CA bundle file.

This configuration option enables the operator to use a custom Cerificate Authority File to verify the ESX/vCenter certificate.

If this option is set, the “vmware_insecure” option will be ignored and the CA file specified will be used to authenticate the ESX/vCenter server certificate and establish a secure connection to the server.

Possible Values:
  • Any string that is a valid absolute path to a CA file

vmware_datastores
Type

multi-valued

Default

''

The datastores where the image can be stored.

This configuration option specifies the datastores where the image can be stored in the VMWare store backend. This option may be specified multiple times for specifying multiple datastores. The datastore name should be specified after its datacenter path, separated by “:”. An optional weight may be given after the datastore name, separated again by “:” to specify the priority. Thus, the required format becomes <datacenter_path>:<datastore_name>:<optional_weight>.

When adding an image, the datastore with highest weight will be selected, unless there is not enough free space available in cases where the image size is already known. If no weight is given, it is assumed to be zero and the directory will be considered for selection last. If multiple datastores have the same weight, then the one with the most free space available is selected.

Possible Values:
  • Any string of the format: <datacenter_path>:<datastore_name>:<optional_weight>

enforce_scope
Type

boolean

Default

False

This option controls whether or not to enforce scope when evaluating policies. If True, the scope of the token used in the request is compared to the scope_types of the policy being enforced. If the scopes do not match, an InvalidScope exception will be raised. If False, a message will be logged informing operators that policies are being invoked with mismatching scope.

enforce_new_defaults
Type

boolean

Default

False

This option controls whether or not to use old deprecated defaults when evaluating policies. If True, the old deprecated defaults are not going to be evaluated. This means if any existing token is allowed for old defaults but is disallowed for new defaults, it will be disallowed. It is encouraged to enable this flag along with the enforce_scope flag so that you can get the benefits of new defaults and scope_type together
