Hi,

I would like to simplify some tooling and I'm looking to learn more about metadata available to the guest.

I'm using some data from here:

http://169.254.169.254/openstack/latest/meta_data.json
http://169.254.169.254/latest/meta-data

Links to the metadata service section of the admin guide seem to be broken so I'm assuming the section was refactored in some way and would love any pointers to the latest source of info on this.

Ideally, I am trying to replace data I am getting from 'openstack server show foo' and 'openstack user show ####' to grab the creator's userid and email address.

Thanks,

Alan
