I have attached a netapp nfs volume to the cinder storage and it is working as expected. I need to know how it actually works whether through API or anything else, to create or delete the volumes.
I have found in the file with the below API names.


Not sure whether these api commands are being used.

Any help would be appreciated

hello, Please refer to the Guide at the following link. (

Some of the items you list are used to ensure the user has appropriate RBAC capability and some are used if/when Extra-Specs are provided as requirements for the Cinder Volume creation. The Extra-specs provides ability to define Cinder Volume characteristics, which the Driver will identify the proper backend to meet those Extra-Specs requirements.

Look at the sections in regards to Cinder, as well as CLI in the discussion around Volume Types, and some of the extra specs available within the link provided.
