you can use key_name to inject ssh key in API document even if this properties didn't explain by API document.


body: {"server": { "name": "lb_key-name", "imageRef": "82557921-9b87-4776-a556-6e6ced3e739c", "availability_zone": "nova", "key_name": "default", "flavorRef": "06560b3c-7d4b-46bb-ad73-637cfee39ee8", "OS-DCF:diskConfig": "AUTO", "max_count": 1, "min_count": 1, "networks": [{"uuid": "e6140731-f5a9-41c9-912f-6e28166ba5e6"}], "security_groups": [{"name": "default"}] } }
