Latest Version

python-cyborgclient is a python bindings to the OpenStack Cyborg API. There’s a Python API (the cyborgclient module), and a command-line script (cyborg). Each implements 100% of the OpenStack Cyborg API.

See the OpenStack CLI Reference for information on how to use the cyborg command-line tool. You may also want to look at the OpenStack API documentation.

The project is hosted on Launchpad, where bugs can be filed. The code is hosted on OpenStack. Patches must be submitted using Gerrit.

This code is a fork of Jacobian’s python-cloudservers. If you need API support for the Rackspace API solely or the BSD license, you should use that repository. python-cyborgclient is licensed under the Apache License like the rest of OpenStack.

Command-line API

Installing this package gets you a shell command, cyborg, that you can use to interact with any Rackspace compatible API (including OpenStack).

You’ll need to provide your OpenStack username and password. You can do this with the --os-username, --os-password and --os-tenant-name params, but it’s easier to just set them as environment variables:

export OS_USERNAME=openstack
export OS_PASSWORD=yadayada
export OS_TENANT_NAME=myproject

You will also need to define the authentication url with --os-auth-url and the version of the API with --os-accelerator-api-version. Or set them as environment variables as well, OS_ACCELERATOR_API_VERSION=1. If you are using Keystone, you need to set the OS_AUTH_URL to the keystone endpoint:

export OS_AUTH_URL=http://controller:5000/v3

Since Keystone can return multiple regions in the Service Catalog, you can specify the one you want with --os-region-name (or export OS_REGION_NAME). It defaults to the first in the list returned.

You’ll find complete documentation on the shell by running cyborg help

Python API

There’s also a complete Python API, but it has not yet been documented.

Quick-start using keystone:

# pass auth plugin and session to Client init.
# service_parameters contains servive_name, service_type, interface and
# region name.
>>> from cyborgclient.v1 import client
>>> nt = client.Client(auth=auth,session=_SESSION,**service_parameters)
>>> nt.accelerators.list()
