OpenStack API v1.1 questions

Asked by Édouard Thuleau on 2011-07-08

1) The new version of OSAPI v1.1 supports now the floating IP.Will it support the security group functionality ?

2) The admin API is done trough the EC2 API, will it be supports through the OSAPI ?

3) The multi-zone management is done with OSAPI. Zone management is admin tasks, users don't have to set zones configuration. Why is it added to OSAPI and not with the admin commands in EC2 API ?

Yes, an extension needs to be made to support this, but it is definitely desired.

My team is working on moving a lot of the admin api commands into OSAPI extensions, they will be proposed when they are cleaned up.

The ec2 admin api commands are pretty hacky, and were only made to make the dashboard work. Now that the dashboard is moving over to the os api, the ec2 admin api will probably be deprecated.
