I am using packstack on centos ( --allinone option , icehouse ). I am currently using horizon to upload images into glance repository. But i have a requirement for adding custom properties to the image metadata.

I am currently using the REST API (PUT) of glance to add custom properties. I am also using glance image-update command line option to add the custom properties.

Instead i want to customize horizon, so that i can capture the values (for the custom properties) from the horizon UI (for each image) and invoke the REST API or the command line to append the custom properites to the image metadata.

Need guidance on how to customize horizon to meet my requirement.

At the moment, Horizon doesn't support managing image customer properties as you've seen. There is a blueprint open to add the feature: which already has a patch up for review at , that we're hoping to merge during the Juno timeframe. You could take inspiration from this and/or, even better, help us land the feature in time by reviewing the patch and leaving your comments/feedback on it. Thank you!
