Glance's power of Image Import Plugins

Interoperable Image Import got introduced as Experimental API in the OpenStack Pike release. The community has worked hard to harden and test the interface and it's time to move forward with the proposed structure.


This talk will walk through the new plugin model that got implemented in the Queens cycle enabling the power of asynchronous tasks during image import. The pluggability got introduced in two places of the workflow, as a option to bring the actual data into Glance in form of web-download POC that is feature par with Images API v1 copy-from and will be last step to enable us removing the Images API v1 from the codebase during Rocky cycle and further down in the flow as operator defined plugins to process the actual data before it will be saved to the backend.


What can I expect to learn?

Attendees will leave the presentation with understanding how to enable and control provided plugins within Glance Interoperable Image Import workflow and what plugins are provided and planned as a part of Glance release.

The second part will walk through how to create and enable their own plugins to further advance the preprocessing of the images prior images are saved to backend, become active and usable on the cloud.
