As we know, the glance access endpoint is:


In my browser I have login.
but how can I get in the endpoint in browser.

I directly access the http://controller:9292/v2 I will get denied. (I have login, but there maybe should provide a token)

You can list the Glance versions without a token. If Glance really runs behind port 9292 (in Pike or Queens, it may well run behind Apache and use a different URL), http://controller:9292 or http://controller:9292/versionslist the versions that the installed Glance offers. See

Unlike Keystone, the v2 API reference doesn't seem to implement a "naked" API http://controller:9292/v2.

Any other API requires you to provide the token as an http header. You also need to provide the API method. The browser doesn't give you the flexibility to do that. There are browser plugins for building and submitting RESTful API requests for Firefox and Chrome, but logging on to Horizon and submitting an API request are two entirely different things.

For examples on how to access the Glance API on the command line, see (the web page documents Newton but should work for all later releases as well).
