Hi Chris,

Are you looking for the 'protected' attribute? You can mark an image with 'protected'=True, then the image can't be deleted by accidentally.

The goal here is protection against deletion of in-use images, not a workaround that can be executed by an admin. For instance, someone without admin still can't do that, and someone with a fat finger can still delete images in use.

"Don't lose your data" is a fine workaround for taking backups, but most of us take backups anyway. Same deal.

    Just set the images to is_public=False as an admin and they'll
    disappear from everyone except the admin.

        Currently, with delay_delete enabled, the Glance scrubber happily
        deletes whatever images you ask it to. That includes images
        that are
        currently in use by Nova guests, which can really hose things.
        It'd be
        nice to have an option to tell the scrubber to skip deletion
        of images
        that are currently in use, which is fairly trivial to check
        for and
        provides a nice measure of protection.

        Without delay_delete enabled, checking for images in use
        likely takes
        too much time, so this would be limited to just images that
        are scrubbed
        with delay_delete.

        I wanted to bring this up here before I go to the trouble of
        writing a
        spec for it, particularly since it doesn't appear that glance
        currently
        talks to Nova as a client at all. Is this something that folks
        would be
        interested in having? Thanks!
