Sharing images among tenants

When an image is private, it is only available to the tenant to which that image was uploaded. OpenStack Image Service provides a mechanism whereby these private images can be shared between different tenants. This allows greater control over images that need to exist for different tenants without making them public for all tenants.

Getting ready

To begin with, ensure you are logged in to our Ubuntu client where we can run the glance tool. This can be installed using the following command:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install glance-client

Ensure that you have your environment variable set up correctly with our admin user and password, as created in the previous chapter:

export OS_TENANT_NAME=cookbook
export OS_USERNAME=admin

export OS_KEY=/vagrant/cakey.pem
export OS_CACERT=/vagrant/ca.pem
