Working with Actions

An action is an abstraction of some logic that can be executed by a worker thread. Most of the operations supported by Senlin are executed asynchronously, which means they are queued into database and then picked up by certain worker thread for execution.

List Actions

To examine the list of actions:

def list_actions(conn):
    print("List Actions:")

    for actions in conn.clustering.actions():

    for actions in conn.clustering.actions(sort='name:asc'):

When listing actions, you can specify the sorting option using the sort parameter and you can do pagination using the limit and marker parameters.

Full example: manage action

Get Action

To get a action based on its name or ID:

def get_action(conn):
    print("Get Action:")

    action = conn.clustering.get_action(ACTION_ID)
