I read the Openstack documentation for APIs and for Heat - but could not find a way to launch an instance based on a snapshot - via API and via Heat [both methods]. Is it possible in the first place to accomplish this via API and via Heat?

Thanks, nd

Snapshots usually get saved as Images. If the snapshot can be listed by Glance then you could use the 'image' option instead of looking into Snapshots.
