The current Horizon settings indicate no valid image creation methods are available. Providing an image location and/or uploading from the local file system must be allowed to support image creation.

That is known issue. Source keystonerc_admin to Controller's shell , download qcow2 image :-

$  glance image-create --name "RHEL-7.2-image" --disk-format qcow2 \
     --container-format bare --progress < rhel-72.qcow2

Update image features via dashboard (admin login) or via glance/openstack CLI as admin.

This resolved my issue- Restarting the services didn't help- a full reboot did the trick. Cheers.

Hi there, If you want to enable upload image in Horizon, you need to do some changes in local_settings file


Add following lines at the end of file:


Then you should restart httpd service.

systemctl restart httpd.service

horizon panel image upload

@kycfeel Do you receive any errors when you set configurations?

if this does not work check the perms on your glance upload dir (commonly some form of tmp with 777) and set your glance dir to 774
