How to create an image in OpenStack

Hi everyone,

OpenStack is a platform where we can develop our own cloud platform. So can we create our own customize image in OpenStack?

Thank You

Hi@akhtar,

Actually this is the fun in OpenStack. You can create your image, delete or update. In Openstack we are the admin of our cloud so we can do anything whatever we want to do. Now come to the answer

There are two ways to create image. One way from CLI and another way from WEB UI. Let's discuss one by one.

Create image from CLI

$ openstack image create --public --disk-format qcow2 --container-format bare --file <IMAGE_FILE> --property <IMAGE_METADATA> <NAME>
  • Replace <IMAGE_FILE> with the local path to the image file to upload. E.g. ws-2012-std.qcow2.

  • Replace <IMAGE_METADATA> with the following property string. E.g. murano_image_info='{"title": "Windows 2012 Standard Edition", "type": "windows.2012"}'

  • Replace <NAME> with the name that users will refer to the disk image by. E.g. ws-2012-std

Create image from WEB UI

Follow this procedure to upload an image to a project:

  1. Log in to the dashboard.

  1. Select the appropriate project from the drop down menu at the top left.

  2. On the Project tab, open the Compute tab and click Images category.

  3. Click Create Image.

    The Create An Image dialog box appears.
