Python Library Reference

In order to use the python api directly, you must first obtain an auth token and identify which endpoint you wish to speak to. Once you have done so, you can use the API like so:

>>> from glanceclient import Client
>>> glance = Client('1', endpoint=OS_IMAGE_ENDPOINT, token=OS_AUTH_TOKEN)
>>> image = glance.images.create(name="My Test Image")
>>> print image.status
>>> image.update(data=open('/tmp/myimage.iso', 'rb'))
>>> print image.status
>>> image.update(properties=dict(my_custom_property='value'))
>>> with open('/tmp/copyimage.iso', 'wb') as f:
        for chunk in
>>> image.delete()
