I can snapshot a running instance and when I go check the glance tables in the DB, the information is there, AND the file is on disk. Cinder however does not have any entries in its snapshot table.

I did find that the problem is the is_public=0, and changing it to is_public=1 makes the snapshot show up. What I don't know is why is it defaulting to private, and how do I control that?

How do I control the saving of snapshots so that the person making the snapshot can see the snapshot after it is made?

Hi, By default, its set to private. I don`t see it as any issue/bug. Can we close this one?

Well, I think an answer would be better first. Ok, the default is private, but how do I see it when I save it? Surely private means that the person doing the save, can see what they saved, otherwise it should be called hidden.
