2016-08-04 09:33:36 -0600 asked a question Is there a way to use webssh login OpenStack instances?

I want to use webssh clients such as guacamole or gate-one to login OpenStack's instances. But it seems OpenStack only provides two approaches: noVNC and xvpVNC consoles. And the virtual machines are inside OpenStack's own internal network, which means the only way to get access to the virtual machines is through vnc-proxy. Is there a simple way to use webssh to login the instances?

I run the commdn "nova --debug image-create ..." and this works. The debug output is "POST http://controller:8774/v2/%7Btenant_uuid/%7Bserver_uuid%7D/action%22 (http://controller:8774/v2/{tenant_uui...). I know how to make the http request. Thank you for comments!

2016-07-27 10:26:08 -0600 asked a question how to create a image from a running instance

I have created an instance and installed some software onto it. Now I need to create a snapshot or image to reserve its status, so that other fellows can use it as a template to create the samiliar instances. The first idea is use OpenStack's nova api -- Create Image (createImage Action):

     POST   http://controller:8774/v2/servers/{server_id}/action
     with {server_id} replaced by the running instance's id and following json entity:
    "createImage" : {
        "name" : "foo-image",
        "metadata": {
            "meta_var": "meta_val"

but the server report 404: service not found. My OpenStack version is Liberty, and the controller's hostname is 'controller'. The token is added to the POST's head as required. Anybody can help?
