I've modified my nova.conf, so that it can auto assign floating ip with my openstack instance.

Due to requirement, I wrote a small script which contains mainly two parts: first, boot instance and auto assign floating ip second, embedded floating ip as a variable and run several commands.

In this situation, I'm curious how can I obtain floating ip of my instance via commands?

is there any openstack command like nova show floating ip?

Note: I am on the Grizzly Release.

I think you can do it as follows:

export OS_TENANT_NAME=<tenant_name>
export OS_USERNAME=<username>
export OS_PASSword=<password>

nova floating-ip-list

    | Ip            | Instance Id                          | Fixed Ip    | Pool    |
    | | e4f76f99-a6f3-49f5-a084-3143bb6d51ac |   | ext_net |
    | | d31c5e83-b370-47ab-8f28-aca628767b82 | | ext_net |
    | | 6355bc1e-ab62-4d8c-b148-1af60a9db6b3 | | ext_net |

The floating IP's are in the left column. The first instance-id is actually the router_id rather than a vm.

Appreciated your reply. Actually, I don't need truly know the assigned floating ip of my newly-created instance. Because I define a variable (e.g. flotip), and embed it in the second part of my script. So I need to get floating ip and pass it to that variable. As for this ip, I don't really care Thanks
