GET
​{tenant_id}​/extensions

 

Request parameters

Parameter Style Type Description
tenant_id URI csapi:UUID

The tenant ID in a multi-tenancy cloud.

This does not accept a request body and does not return a response body.

Servers

Lists, creates, gets details for, updates, and deletes servers.

Passwords

When you create a server, you can specify a password through the optional adminPass attribute. The specified password must meet the complexity requirements set by your OpenStack Compute provider. The server might enter an ERROR state if the complexity requirements are not met. In this case, a client might issue a change password action to reset the server password.

If you do not specify a password, a randomly generated password is assigned and returned in the response object. This password is guaranteed to meet the security requirements set by the compute provider. For security reasons, the password is not returned in subsequent GET calls.

Server metadata

You can specify custom server metadata at server launch time. The maximum size for each metadata key-value pair is 255 bytes. The maximum number of key-value pairs that can be supplied per server is determined by the compute provider. You can query this value through the maxServerMeta absolute limit.

Server networks

You can specify networks to which the server connects at launch time. You can specify one or more networks. Users can also specify a specific port on the network or the fixed IP address to assign to the server interface.

You can use both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses as access addresses and you can assign both addresses simultaneously. You can update access addresses after you create a server.

Server personality

You can customize the personality of a server instance by injecting data into its file system. For example, you might want to insert ssh keys, set configuration files, or store data that you want to retrieve from inside the instance. This feature provides a minimal amount of launch-time personalization. If you require significant customization, create a custom image.

Follow these guidelines when you inject files:

  • The maximum size of the file path data is 255 bytes.
  • Encode the file contents as a Base64 string. The compute providers determines the maximum size of the file contents. This value can vary based on the image that is used to create the server.
  • The maximum limit refers to the number of bytes in the decoded data and not to the number of characters in the encoded data.
  • You can inject only text files. You cannot inject binary or ZIP files into a new build.
  • The maxPersonality absolute limit defines the maximum number of file path and content pairs that you can supply. The compute provider determines this value.
  • The maxPersonalitySizemaxPersonalitySize absolute limit is a byte limit that is guaranteed to apply to all images in the deployment. Providers can set additional per-image personality limits.

The file injection might not occur until after the server is built and booted.

During file injection, any existing files that match specified files are renamed to include the BAK extension appended with a time stamp. For example, if the /etc/passwd file exists, it is backed up as /etc/passwd.bak.1246036261.5785.

After file injection, only system administrators can access personality files. For example, on Linux, all files have root as the owner and the root group as the group owner, and allow only user and group read access (chmod 440).

Server access addresses

In a hybrid environment, the underlying implementation might not control the IP address of a server. Instead, the access IP address might be part of the dedicated hardware; for example, a router/NAT device. In this case, the addresses provided by the implementation cannot actually be used to access the server (from outside the local LAN). Here, a separate access address might be assigned at creation time to provide access to the server. This address might not be directly bound to a network interface on the server and might not necessarily appear when you query the server addresses. Nonetheless, clients that must access the server directly are encouraged to do so through an access address.

GET
​{tenant_id}​/servers

List servers

Lists IDs, names, and links for all servers.

 

Servers contain a status attribute that indicates the current server state. You can filter on the server status when you complete a list servers request. The server status is returned in the response body. The server status is one of the following values:

    Server status values
  • ACTIVE. The server is active.

  • BUILDING. The server has not finished the original build process.

  • DELETED. The server is permanently deleted.

  • ERROR. The server is in error.

  • HARD_REBOOT. The server is hard rebooting. This is equivalent to pulling the power plug on a physical server, plugging it back in, and rebooting it.

  • PASSWORD. The password is being reset on the server.

  • PAUSED. In a paused state, the state of the server is stored in RAM. A paused server continues to run in frozen state.

  • REBOOT. The server is in a soft reboot state. A reboot command was passed to the operating system.

  • REBUILD. The server is currently being rebuilt from an image.

  • RESCUED. The server is in rescue mode. A rescue image is running with the original server image attached.

  • RESIZED. Server is performing the differential copy of data that changed during its initial copy. Server is down for this stage.

  • REVERT_RESIZE. The resize or migration of a server failed for some reason. The destination server is being cleaned up and the original source server is restarting.

  • SOFT_DELETED. The server is marked as deleted but the disk images are still available to restore.

  • STOPPED. The server is powered off and the disk image still persists.

  • SUSPENDED. The server is suspended, either by request or necessity. This status appears for only the following hypervisors: XenServer/XCP, KVM, and ESXi. Administrative users may suspend an instance if it is infrequently used or to perform system maintenance. When you suspend an instance, its VM state is stored on disk, all memory is written to disk, and the virtual machine is stopped. Suspending an instance is similar to placing a device in hibernation; memory and vCPUs become available to create other instances.

  • UNKNOWN. The state of the server is unknown. Contact your cloud provider.

  • VERIFY_RESIZE. System is awaiting confirmation that the server isal after a move or resize.

Create server

Creates a server.

 

The progress of this depends on the location of the requested image, network I/O, host load, selected flavor, and other factors.

Issue a GET /servers/{id} request to check the progress of the request, which returns a progress attribute with a from 0 to 100% complete value. The Location header returns the full URL to the newly created server and is available as a self and bookmark link in the server representation.

When you create a server, only the server ID, its links, and the admin password are guaranteed to be returned in the response. You can get additional attributes through subsequent GET requests on the server.

Include the block-device-mapping-v2 parameters in the create request to boot a server from a volume.

Preconditions

  • The user must have sufficient server quota to create the number of servers requested.
  • The connection to the Image service is valid.

Asynchronous Postconditions

  • With correct permissions, you can see the server status as ACTIVE through API calls.
  • With correct access, you can see the created server in the compute node that OpenStack Compute manages.

Troubleshooting

  • If the server status remains BUILDING or shows another error status, the request failed. Ensure you meet the preconditions then investigate the compute node.
  • The server is not created in the compute node that OpenStack Compute manages.
  • The compute node needs enough free resource to match the specified resource of the server creation request.
  • Ensure that the scheduler selection filter can fulfill the request with the available compute nodes that match the selection criteria of the filter.

GET
​{tenant_id}​/servers/detail

List details for servers

Lists details for all servers.

 

The compute provisioning algorithm has an anti-affinity property that attempts to spread customer VMs across hosts. Under certain situations, VMs from the same customer might be placed on the same host. hostId represents the host your server runs on and can be used to determine this scenario if it is relevant to your application.

HostId is unique per account and is not globally unique.

Normal response codes

200, 203

Error response codes

computeFault (400, 500, …), serviceUnavailable (503), badRequest (400), unauthorized (401), forbidden (403), badMethod (405), overLimit (413)

POST
​{tenant_id}​/servers/​{server_id}​/action

Confirm resized server

Confirms a pending resize action. Specify the confirmResize action in the request body.

 

After you make this request, you typically must keep polling the server status to determine whether the request succeeded. A successfully confirming resize shows a status of ACTIVE and a migration_status of confirmed. You can also see the resized server in the compute node that OpenStack Compute manages.

Preconditions

  • You can only confirm the resized server where the status is VERIFY_RESIZED, the vm_status is RESIZED, and the migration_status is finished or confirming.

  • If the specified server is locked, you must have administrator privileges to confirm the server.

Troubleshooting

  • If the specified server status remains RESIZED, the request failed. Ensure you meet the preconditions and run the request again. If the request fails again, investigate the compute backend or ask your cloud provider.

Revert resized server

Cancels and reverts a pending resize action. Specify the revertResize action in the request body.

 

After you make this request, you typically must keep polling the server status to determine whether the request succeeded. A successfully reverting resize shows a status of ACTIVE and a migration_status of reverted. You can also see the reverted server in the compute node that OpenStack Compute manages.

Preconditions

  • You can only confirm the resized server where the status is VERIFY_RESIZE and the vm_status is RESIZED.

  • If the specified server is locked, you must have administrator privileges to revert the resizing.

Troubleshooting

  • If the specified server status remains RESIZED, the request failed. Ensure you meet the preconditions and run the request again. If the request fails again, investigate the compute backend.

  • The specified server is not reverted in the compute node that OpenStack Compute manages.

Create image

Creates a new image. Specify the createImage action in the request body.

 

After you make this request, you typically must keep polling the created image's status to determine whether the request succeeded. A successfully creating image shows an image's status of available and the serve's status goes back to the original status. You can also see the new image in the image backend that OpenStack Image service manages.

Preconditions

  • The specified server must exist.

  • You can only create a new image from the server when its status is ACTIVE, PAUSED, or SUSPENDED.

  • The connection to the Image service is valid.

Troubleshooting

  • If the image status remains uploading or shows another error status, the request failed. Ensure you meet the preconditions and run the request again. If the request fails again, investigate the image backend.

  • If the server status does not go back to an original server's status, the request failed. Ensure you meet the preconditions, or check if there is another that causes race conditions for the server, then run the request again. If the request fails again, investigate the compute backend or ask your cloud provider.

  • If the request fails due to an error on OpenStack Compute service, the image is purged from the image store that OpenStack Image service manages. Ensure you meet the preconditions and run the request again. If the request fails again, investigate OpenStack Compute service or ask your cloud provider.
