K2K OpenStackClient21 Mar 2016 in OpenStack
OpenStackClient proof of concept to send commands to federated Service Providers using K2K.
Currently there is no way to performs calls to the federated Service Providers using OpenStackClient or the various python-*client.
With a new command line option
--sp, users should be able to direct that call to the specified service provider using K2K.
Here is a short demo on which we query Glance for the image list in the Service Provider and boot an instance there using one of the images.
--sp command line option parameter is added. This is the federated service id as registered in Keystone.
A new auth object is created and assigned as
self.auth. This is done in the
setup_auth method, after the local
self.auth object has been built.
A WIP patch will be proposed soon with the full changes.
