Python bindings to the OpenStack Magnum API

This is a client for the OpenStack Magnum API. It includes a Python API (the magnumclient module) and a command-line script (installed as magnum).

Python API

To use python-magnumclient in a project, create a client instance using the keystoneauth session API:

from keystoneauth1.identity import v3
from keystoneauth1 import session
from keystoneclient.v3 import client

from magnumclient.client import Client

magnum_endpoint = ""

auth = v3.Password(auth_url='',
sess = session.Session(auth=auth)

magnum = Client('1', endpoint_override=magnum_endpoint, session=sess)

For more information on keystoneauth API, see Using Sessions.

Command-line tool

In order to use the CLI, you must provide your OpenStack username, password, project name, user domain ID, project domain ID, and auth endpoint. Use the corresponding configuration options (–os-username, –os-password, –os-project-name, –os-project-domain-id, –os-user-domain-id, and –os-auth-url) or set them in environment variables:

export OS_USERNAME=myuser
export OS_PASSWORD=mypassword
export OS_PROJECT_NAME=myproject
export OS_USER_DOMAIN_ID=default
export OS_PROJECT_DOMAIN_ID=default
export OS_AUTH_URL=

From there, all shell commands take the form:

magnum <command> [arguments...]

Run magnum help to see a complete listing of available commands. Run magnum help <command> to get detailed help for that command.
