In the horizon there is an option to upload image file from disk or from external URL. But is API support copying from external URL? There is no such methods/parameters I found in docs.

Is there any way to create image with external source using v2 api? Maybe with several requests, or with v1 API?

Any help is apreciated.

Why would you like to reinvent the wheel? I mean you can scp a image to your backend and then run a script to run glance create image.

Thanks for response, but I think waiting the REST API functionality to be the same as CLI functionality is not reinventing the wheel.

Hello, Looks like in REST Api v1 we can do following request:

POST v1/images

headers: {
  'x-glance-api-copy-from': '<image_url>',
  'x-image-meta-name': '<image_name>'

Request shouldn't contain body.
